Prep: 30 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes

  1. For the pizza base – Dissolve 1 tbsp sugar in 1 cup of hot water, add yeast and mix it well. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. In a bowl add flour, salt, 1 tbsp oil and yeast mixture. Knead dough, cover and let it sit for about an hour for the dough to rise.
  3. Divide dough into two parts and make pizza bases using a rolling pin or use your hands to spread the base.
  4. Bake in the oven for about 10-15 minutes at 180 C.
  5. For the sauce – Bake tomatoes, capsicum, a small onion for about 20 minutes at 180 C or roast them on a gas stove for the same time.
  6. After it cools down, grind it in a blender to make the tomato sauce.
  7. Next, heat oil in a pan and add tomato sauce, season with all the herbs, black pepper and 1 tbsp sugar, lemon juice and a pinch of salt.
  8. Add about a half cup of water and let it simmer until sauce-like consistency.
  9. To assemble – Assemble it the way you like. I like to start with a layer of tomato sauce.
  10. Then some cheese on top followed by loads of vegetable toppings. Add some capsicum, cherry tomatoes, corn for the pop of colour on your pizza.
  11. Finish it with a pinch of salt and pepper.
