- Whisk yeast and lukewarm water in glass or plastic container. Let stand for approximately 5 minutes.
- 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.

The pizza should be done within roughly 15 minutes. Always cook to personal tastes.
Although not a common topping, Egg is usually hard boiled and then sliced and allowed to cool completely, before being used as a topping on Pizza. However, some pizzas go well with a fried egg placed on top.
Eggs are very healthy for you. One egg contains only 5 grams of fat, 7 grams of high-quality protein, iron, minerals, vitamins and carotenoids. The humble egg contains amazing disease fighting nutrients, such as zeaxanthin and lutein.
When making Green peas Pizza, it’s always handy to have the right pizza making tools. Here’s the basic pizza tools that I always suggest…
Quality Food Containers
Leftovers need to go somewhere, and I don’t enjoy using aluminium foil or plastic wrap all the time. A couple of good air tight containers should be in every home.
Sometimes called a paddle or shovel, a pizza peel is a vital tool for those who make pizza regularly.
Wooden Rolling Pin
Many people prefer hand stretching, however every cook really should have a good wooden roller nearby too.
Raisins, a dried fruit often associated with sugary snacks and desserts, can actually be quite the versatile ingredient. While they may not be the first topping that comes to mind when thinking of pizza toppings, raisins can add unexpected pop of sweetness and texture to any pizza.
Raisins are a great way to get creative in the kitchen, allowing you to explore new flavor combinations that are sure to please your foodie friends. Whether you’re looking for something sweet or savory, this dried fruit is sure to offer an interesting twist on your classic pizza pie!
