Servings : Serves 4-6
The WOW factor alone that you would get from this gorgeous pizza is enough, but the taste is even more incredible. All the bubbles on the border of the pizza are stuffed with cheese, so every bite is a burst of flavour.
Ingredients for Pizza Dough
- 5 cups all-purpose/plain flour (each is 120gm)
- 1 1/2 cups warm water (or water mixed with some fresh milk)
- 8 tbsp oil
- 2 tbsp milk powder
- 2 level tbsp instant yeast
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp salt
- Pizza Sauce (recipe link given below)
- Pizza Toppings (recipe link given below)
- 2 cups mozzarella & cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 egg yolk beaten with 1 tsp milk
- sesame seeds
For Step by Step instructions with pics, check HERE.
First, prepare the pizza sauce and toppings using these recipes:
Pizza Toppings or Spicy Chicken Topping
Next, prepare the Pizza Dough
Mix all the dry ingredients and the oil, then slowly start adding the warm water/milk a little at a time. Get it to a soft dough, the softer the better, knead it very well for at least 8 minutes or more if possible.
Dab a touch of oil all over the dough, then cover it and place it somewhere warm. Leave it to rise to double its size, takes about 30 minutes to an hour depending on the weather.
Once risen, punch it down, give it a quick knead and then divide the dough into 2 equal parts.
Roll half of the dough to about 12", then place it on a greased pizza tray.
Divide the second part of the dough into small balls, fill each one with cheese of your choice, I used some grated mozzarella. Seal the balls well and place them all around the border of the pizza.
Lightly cover the pizza and let it sit for about 15 minutes.
When about ready to bake, take a knife and poke small slits a few times all over the base of the pizza to prevent it from swelling up during baking.
Preheat the oven to 180 C
Spread the pizza sauce, sprinkle some cheese, and then add toppings of your choice. Sprinkle some more cheese on top. Then brush the balls on the border of the pizza with the beaten egg and sprinkle sesame seeds.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until the pizza is well cooked and golden. You can first place it on the lower rack for about 10 minutes, then bring it up a notch to the center rack and continue baking until done.
Thank you. I have already sent you the pic 🙂

aoa, im new to cooking of all types, just wanted to know if i can use self rising flour instead of all purpose flour?
and if yes then what about rest of the ingredients of the dough, do i have to add them while kneading the dough? please reply soon i need to make pizza tonight 🙁
No, self rising flour
No, self rising flour contains a lot of baking powder, we do not need it for most bread recipes. So best to stick with all purpose/plain flour. And yes, all other ingredients should be added into the flour.
