  • Stir well with your hands
  • Add your rosemary and olive oil and mix further
  • Add your yeast water to this mixture
  • Knead until soft bread dough consistency ( note use more or less water as required)
  • You can always add more flour if the dough gets soggy.
  • Once its kneaded into a soft ball, place it in the mixing bowl, cover with a damp towel and keep in warm spot to let rise for 2-3 hours.
  • Sauce:
  • In a pot add your olive oil and when warm add your garlic and onions
  • Stir a couple of times until slightly opaque
  • Add your salt, tomatoes and oregano, cover and simmer for 15 mins

  • Knead the risen dough into a smooth large ball
  • Place on a clean rolling surface and starting in the middle roll the pizza into the thickness and shape you desire
  • Oil a large baking sheet and place it on a large cool oven baking insert
  • Place the rolled pizza onto the baking sheet and stretch the pizza dough a little bit with your fingers.
  • Add your tomato sauce using a ladle, or smooth with your clean fingers, making sure you also spread some to the crust ring.
  • Place your basil leaves and liberally sprinkle all the copped mozzarella on the pizza, evenly.
