Tomato and Cheese Pizza

Tomato and Cheese Pizza
OK, again my oven toaster is very useful! This time I made pizza for a change and I think there will be more pizza coming, I just love it!

Ingredients for the Pizza Dough:
100g bread flour (I used whole wheat)
50g cake flour
100ml water
1/4 tablespoon sugar
1/4 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon dry yeast
15g unsalted butter
Ingredients for Tomato Sauce:
10g butter
100g onion, chopped
200g tomato, skinless and chopped
black pepper
Italian Seasoning
tomato sauce (optional)

For the Toppings:
1big tomato, sliced
200g mozzarella cheese

To make the dough, combine flour, sugar, salt, water and yeast in a bowl. Whisk. Add  butter, and knead until dough becomes elastic. Cover with plastic wrap, set in a warm temperature place for first rise for 20 minutes. When the dough double its size, take out and knead out air bubbles. Rest for another 20 minutes for the second fermentation. 

Meanwhile, prepare the tomato sauce by sauteing the onion in butter until fragrant. Add black pepper and Italian seasoning, stir well. Add tomato dice, sugar and tomato sauce. Simmer mixture until liquid dries out, season with salt to taste.

When the dough is ready to use, place the dough in a pizza pan and roll out. Spread tomato sauce evenly. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese all over it, place sliced fresh tomato, then sprinkle again with mozzarella cheese.

Bake for 25-30 minutes in a 185°C.

I like it a little bit burnt.

Here, have some slices of my first pizza ever made!

I like my pizza not too loaded with toppings, that why my fave is either basic cheese or white cheese pizza!

Yes I agree with you, the lesser the toppings, the better! Thanks!
