300g of flour
1 sachet of baker’s yeast
200ml of lukewarm water
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
Tomato sauce
Toppings of your choice (ham, mushrooms, olives, etc.)
Olive oil

Preparation of the dough:

In a bowl, mix the flour and salt.
Dissolve the baker’s yeast in lukewarm water with a teaspoon of sugar.
Pour the yeast mixture into the bowl of flour and mix until you get a smooth dough.
Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5-7 minutes until smooth and elastic.
Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest in a warm place for about 1 hour until it doubles in size.
Preparation of the tomato sauce:

While the dough is resting, you can prepare the tomato sauce. You can use a store-bought tomato sauce or make it yourself by sautéing minced garlic in olive oil, then adding tomato purée, salt, pepper, sugar and herbs (like oregano and basil). Let simmer for about 15 minutes.

Preheat your oven to the highest temperature (usually between 230 and 250 degrees Celsius).

Once the dough has risen, transfer it to a lightly floured surface and roll it out using your hands or a rolling pin. Be sure to give the dough a round or rectangular shape, depending on your preference.
Carefully transfer the dough to a lightly oiled or parchment-lined baking sheet.
Spread the tomato sauce generously over the dough, leaving a free border on the sides.
Spread the toppings evenly over the tomato sauce. Add the mozzarella on top.
