One of the easiest ways to spice up your date nights is to indulge in activities that you both enjoy. Baking or cooking together and then enjoying it later with an episode of friends is one of the cutest date ideas. This article will give you the easiest pizza recipe that you can use to surprise your partner.
To make the pizza dough, you will be needing the following ingredients:
Flour- 250 grams
Yeast- 2 Tbsp
Sugar- 2 Tbsp
Milk- ¼ cup
To make the pizza sauce, you will be needing the following ingredients:
Tomato Puree- 1 can
Garlic- 1 tsp
Salt – as per taste
Oregano- 1 tbsp
Basil – 2-3 leaves
Olive Oil- 3 Tbsp
Sugar- 1 tsp
Tomato Paste- 1 tsp
For toppings, you can use the following ingredients:
Cheese (Mozzarella and Cheddar)
To form the dough, it is essential that you activate the yeast. Add in the milk and stir with sugar. Ensure that your milk is lukewarm, otherwise, the yeast won’t be activated. Stir it well. After the yeast has bloomed, add the yeast mixture into the flour. Knead with lukewarm water until the dough has formed. Let it rest in an oiled bowl for 2-3 hours or until doubled in size.
In another pan, heat the olive oil. Add in your chopped garlic and fry it until you can smell its aroma. Add in your tomato puree and let it cook until the water in it has evaporated and you can see the oil separating. Then add in your tomato paste. To balance out the acidic flavor of tomatoes, add in the sugar. Add in salt and pepper. Cook for a while. Knead the dough for another minute and assemble everything. Top off your cheeses, vegetables and spices. Drizzle some olive oil for the crispy cheese. Bake for 60 minutes at 180C. Serve warm.
