I make pizza at least once a week. But when I say that I make pizzas, I really mean making them from scratches ! I’m totally into bread making recently, I make my own burger buns and I love cinnamon rolls… And well, compared to those 2, pizza is definitely the easiest so don’t hesitate, you’ll taste the difference !





  • 300g flour (I love to add 1/3 corn flour, I love the taste)
  • 120ml lukewarm water
  • 1 pack active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 Tsp olive oil
  • 1 pinche of sal
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dry tomato flakes (I get mine from a tiny little Egyptian grocery store !)
  • 1 tsp basil (finely chopped)
  1. In a small bowl dissolve the yeast and the sugar in half the water. Let sit till it bubbles
  2. In a big bowl combine the flour, the yeast, le rest of the water and all the other ingredients. Mix first using a wooden spoon and then knead on a floured surface for at least 5mn. The dough should be soft and springy.
  3. Put the dough back in the bowl, cover and let sit for an hour or so. It should double in volume.
  4. After an hour punch it down, transfer to pastry sheet and shape your pizza using a rolling pin.
  5. Garnish the dough and bake 15 minutes at 200°C (400°F)
The tomato base :
  • In a small bowl mix one small can of tomato paste with 1 Tsp olive oil, 1 tsp balsamico, 1 Tsp sugar + some lukewarm water.


I guess you’ll know how to garnish your pizza ! Personally I love veggie pizza with roasted eggplant, zucchini & pepper… Although I try to eat vegan I still haven’t found a good replacement to the melting cheese on top !! (You might spot some tiny little bits of bacon on that pizza… Well, that’s my other half’s half!
