Pizza Dough Method
If you don’t have much time, grab a premade pizza base at your local grocery store, or hand make your own pizza dough following the simple steps below. Some shops even carry premade pizza dough in balls.
- Whisk the lukewarm water and yeast in a plastic or glass jug. Let mixture stand for five minutes.
- Add salt and flour in a large bowl. Create a hollow well in the middle and gently pour the liquid yeast mixture and oil.
- Using a spatula, or your hands, mix the dough really well until smooth. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for five minutes.
- Lightly oil a bowl, and place dough in it and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes to an hour, or until it doubles in size.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for another 5 minutes or until smooth.
- Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking.
- Divide the dough into balls, and roll out bases to desired size.

Tomato Pizza Sauce Method
Why settle for store-bought sauce when you can make your own delicious pizza sauce with these easy steps? Of course, if you’re pressed for time, you can always purchase sauce at your local store.
- Blend all sauce ingredients in a large bowl.
- Ensure all ingredients are mixed together well.
- Keep mixture sitting for five minutes.

- Sauce will last up to 3 days in fridge.
Remember that you can always adjust the garlic level in your pizza sauce recipe to suit your taste.
Preparing Mushroom 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 Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato 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.
Toppings to put on this pizza are;
I find this pizza perfect as is, or you could with other pizzas as well?
Put the Mushroom pizza on the middle shelf of the oven and wait for approximately 10 minutes.
After roughly 10 minutes, check on the pizza.
Pizza should be ready within 15 minutes. However, allow it to cook to personal taste.
There are thousands of varieties of Mushrooms, with different colors, shapes, and sizes. All of the edible ones are low in calories and fat, and contain modest amounts of fiber and various nutrients.
Mushrooms have been eaten and used as medicine for thousands of years. Button, Oyster, Portobello, Shiitake and Enoki are among the most popular Mushrooms to eat raw or cooked.
When making Mushroom Pizza, I suggest you just use what you have available, without spending any money. My recommended basic pizza tool list is…
A pizza steel is very similar to a pizza stone, and works the same way in a normal kitchen oven.
OK, so this isn’t vital, but if you make enough pizza, breads, etc it is worth investing in a good mixer for your dough.
You will find having a seive such a useful element for all your baking, not just for pizza. It’s great to filter all flours through a fine mesh sieve before adding to recipes.
Fresh Mozzarella is typically white, however when seasoned it can change to light yellow, depending on the animal’s diet. Due to its high moisture content, it is traditionally served the day after it is made, however it can be kept in brine for a week, or even longer if packaged well.
Mozzarella was first cited in an Italian cookbook in 1570. Nowadays, Mozzarella can be twisted to form a plait, and called Treccia. You can also buy it as a smoked cheese, called Affumicata.
Here are some interesting facts about pizza.
The most popular pizza cheese

Pizza making FAQ
Want to know how to make fantastic pizza at home? Here are some FAQ and their answers to the most common pizza making questions.
How long can pizza sit out?
You shouldn’t leave pizza out in the open uncovered, for more than a few hours. In fact, I would put it in an air tight container within an hour, if it weren’t being eaten.
How long should I leave stretched out dough out before making pizza?
As short a time as possible. The longer you leave it, the more chance that your dough will stick to whatever surface it is on, will become moist and soggy or will start drying out. It’s best to roll out a ball of dough just prior to adding the pizza sauce and toppings.
How long to preheat pizza stone?
Ideally, you should poreheat your oven for at least 30 minutes prior to putting the pizza in.
