Cheesy Tomato Pizza

After few days of cakes & cookies, i finally prepared some super cheesy delicious pizza yesterday for our dinner..I was bit nervous while serving this vegetarian pizza coz everyone at home love  pizzas with loads of meats and sausages also with loads of cheese,but for my surprise this pizza got vanished very much quickly..My teddies told that this pizza was much more tastier than the pizzas from 'Pizza hut',watelse a mom need, i simply as mini tomato pizzas for my teddies and a maxi pizza for us, just with fresh tomatoes,emmentel cheese along with dry oregano and dry parsley leaves,we just loved it..

For crust:

1 tsp Active Dry Or Instant Yeast
4 cups All-purpose Flour
1 tsp  Salt
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Sprinkle yeast over 1 1/2 cups warm (not lukewarm) water.Combine flour and salt in a bowl,drizzle in olive oil until combined with flour. Next, pour in yeast-water mixture and mix until just combined.

Coat a separate mixing bowl with olive oil, and form the dough into a ball...Coat the dough with olive oil, then cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until you need it.It’s best to make the dough at least 24 hours in advance, and 3 or 4 days is even better..

For Filling:
3nos Tomatoes
Emmental or mozzarella cheese (as per need)
Dry oregano leaves
Dry parsley leaves
Few chilly flakes
1/4cup  Pizza sauce

Roll the dough as a medium sized disc..bring boil 2cups of water, put off the stove,drop the tomates and let them sit for few minutes, pass the tomatoes to chilled water,peel the skin of the tomatoes and cut as medium sized pieces.

Preheat the oven to 350F..Spread the pizza sauce to the rolled disc, mix the oregano,parsley leaves and chilly flakes along with chopped tomatoess , arrange the spiced tomatoes over the pizza base finally springle the grated cheese over the veggies.

Bake this vegetarian pizza in the middle rack for 20-25minutes until the cheese melts..

Enjoy warm with simple salads..
