How To Make Pizza From Scratch By Moji

Inviting Pizza made from home
 Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, #Smiling, for those of us whose kids can't do without asking for pizza. God has answered our prayer and we can now make it in our kitchens. When
I received this from Moji, the kids were around so I left it for a while cos opening means making pizza right away.  This is so detailed and first to try should please share pictures with us.
Ingredients for pizza: Olive oil, yeast, plain flour. Measurements on the pic. (Shop measuring cups and spoons)
Combine dough and ingredients in a mixing bowl
Using your stand mixer or hands, mix well and gradually start adding warm water 
 Add a little water at a time to prevent the dough from becoming too wet till it starts to come together
 Knead the dough till it becomes smooth and elastic
 Add some oil to the bowl to cover your dough ball
Use a spatula if like me you don't want your hands to get sticky
Cover and allow to rise for about an hour

While waiting for your dough to rise, you can start chopping vegetables on a cutting board.

Allow them to sweat in the oil
Chop chicken frankfurter or any topping of your choice

Mozzarella and cheddar. Any other combo will do but I think these work better

Cheese for pizza, you only need about a third of each  

Chop cheese finely or grate
Cheese straight from the fridge is easier to grate
Remove half of the onion that have been sweating and add half a tablespoonful of tomato puree
Add about  table spoonful ketchup, a little water to loosen the mixture and a pinch of salt
It should look like so

Add the remaining sauteed pepper and onion to the franks

Line your baking sheet with cornflour, be generous, this will prevent sticking and will burn instead of your pizza ( I have never used corn flour, I always use semo but CF is the Official ingredient)

Back to the dough, in one hour, it should have doubled in size like this
Punch it out a bit to let out air and slap it on semo or cornflour baking tray
The dough is very elastic and should stretch very easily to the edge of your tray

You can throw it in the air like a real Italian pro but be sure your kitchen floor is spotless just incase

Spread your dough, leaving a little off the edges

Add franks, onion and pepper toppings

Add your cheese

Place on the lowest rack in a preheated oven and allow to heat for at least 10 mins. Don't worry about wasting gas, God will provide.

5 to 10 mins later, VOILA, the pizza is ready
Make sure you don't leave the kitchen, it cooks really fast

Slice your homemade pizza up and enjoy

  1. awwww, this is so detailed and easy to follow! moji you are the best oooo< bookmarked and looking forward to preparing it as soon as possible. lol@ see you at the gym.

    1. lolllllllll.....

  2. lol..Ur comment abt not worrying abt the gas cracked me up. Can u kindly add specifics abt the measurement. Sumtyms, my measurement doesnt go ryt even at baking and its either I have a charred disaster or a product that tastes funny. I still owe Aunt Eya. Naughty me.

    1. The only ingredients that need to be specific are for the dough
      Flour: 2 cups
      Yeast: 1 teaspoon
      Salt: 1/2 teaspoon
      Water: 1- 1.5 cups

      Everything else can be adjusted to your taste

    2. just make sure the water is warm

    2. You can use Chicken, mixed veg, mushrooms, fish even periwinkles! There really is no substitute for cheese. If you like you can leave it out all together, it would still taste great but not have the gooey texture

  34. Hi...Please if I want to use fresh chicken as part of my topping, do I have to cook the chicken a little? Thanks for your funny and educative blog.

    1. Yes Kenneth, season and parboil or stir fry the chicken for more yummy taste.
