- Add flour and salt in a large bowl. Create a well in the centre of the flour. Pour in the liquid yeast mixture and the oil.
- Using dough mixer or hands, gently mix dough until smooth. Place pizza dough on a lightly floured work surface and then knead by hand for five minutes.

- Pour dough mix out onto a clean, floured surface. Now hand knead gently for another five minutes.

Preparing Chocolate Pizza
Preheat your oven to roughly 500 degrees.
Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone or tray.
Alternatively, if you have a pizza peel, roll out to be smaller than that.
You start by spreading the sauce around. This pizza calls for No sauce. Spread the No sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or ladle.
Then start adding the largest ingredients, then work your way down. The last is any cheese topping, such as Mozzarella, which you should evenly cover the other toppings with, and then finally any herbs.

Chocolate is made from Cacao bean. The Aztecs valued the cacao bean so highly, they used it as currency. There is evidence that humans in Ecuador were eating cacao products around 5000 years ago.
Chocolate is time consuming to make, and it takes about 400 beans to make a single pound of Chocolate. 70 percent of the world’s cacao comes from Africa. Dark chocolate contains heaps of antioxidants, which help your cardiovascular system.

Having a good dough mixer can make all the difference. You don’t want to be manually kneading forever, do you?
Having a nice oil jug to pour olive oil gives you a decadent edge. They don’t cost that much either!
I use quality wooden boards constantly when making pizzas, botth to carry dough balls and to use when slicing baked pizzas.

Pizza making FAQ
Want to know how to make fantastic pizza at home? Here are some helpful answers to the most frequently asked questions.
What is the order of ingredients when topping a pizza?
The order of ingredients when topping a pizza is typically the pizza sauce, the large ingredients (meat, seafood, vegetables, etc), the smaller ingredients, cheese topping then herbs. If you are using fresh herbs, you may wish to bake the oven then sprinkle them on afterwards, to avoid them browning.
When do I add ice cream on a dessert pizza?
With ingredients such as ice cream, cream and even fruits, it is normally best to cook the pizza with the harder toppings, and then add these toppings after baking, so they don’t burn or melt everywhere in the oven.
Can I substitute pizza sauce with regular ketchup or pasta sauce?
You can try, however you probably won’t enjoy the result. Both ketchup and pasta sauces are typically too runny to use as pizza sauce. You are better using tomato paste, or at least mixing tomato paste in with your ketchup, to get a thicker sauce. Half the taste of pizza sauce is in the garlic and herbs, so don’t forget to add those as well.
