- 1/2 cup water - ماء
- 3 tablespoon olive oil - زيت زيتون
- 1 small onion (chopped) - بصلة
- 2 medium garlic cloves minced - فصوص ثوم
- 1/4 teaspoon sugar - سكر
- 1/4 teaspoon oregano (or thyme) - أوريجانو/ زعتر
- salt and pepper (to taste) - ملح و فلفل
Step by step
- Start with the tomato sauce to allow it to cool before adding to the pizza. Place the tomatoes, tomato paste and water in a small blender. Pulse carefully making sure to keep some tomato chunks for texture.
- In a small pot, sauté onions in olive oil until soft. Add the minced garlic, leave to cook for about 30 seconds then add the prepared tomato sauce.
- Add sugar, and season with oregano, salt and pepper and leave to simmer on lowest heat for about 15 minutes until sauce has nicely thickened. Set aside to cool.
- To prepare pizza dough, combine flour with baking powder and salt in a bowl. Add the yoghurt and mix. Use your hands to bring it together into a dough. Sprinkle more flour if the dough is sticky.
- Dust a clean working surface and a rolling pin with flour. Roll out dough into desired pizza shape and place it on baking tray. You can also just flatten the dough onto the tray with your hands.
- Add some of the tomato sauce over the pizza dough leaving the edges clean. Then top your pizza with your favourite toppings and cheese.
- Bake in a preheated 180C oven for 12-15 minutes. Serve immediately.
