Combining it with the element of surprise will be a great initiative. So the first thing that comes to mind is what you should try to make. You don't have to be a  professional chef, as this is supposed to be something easy. What about making a pizza?

Not only is it easy, but also it will consume less time. So let's get straight to the pizza-making tips so you can enjoy it with your family.

Ingredients Required For Dough

The main ingredient by which pizza making starts is the dough. The perfect dough is essential for a delicious pizza. The things required to make pizza dough are as follows:

3 or 2.4 cups of all-purpose flour

1 unit (0.4 ounces) of active dry yeast

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1 cup of warm (110–115°F) water

Cooking oil, 1 tablespoon


Combine the flour you have taken, yeast, and salt in a sizable bowl to mix evenly. Beat till smooth after adding the water and oil. Next, add just enough flour to create a soft dough. When you form the dough, you must let it settle for some time so that every ingredient sets in.

After seven minutes of kneading it on a floured surface, your dough should be smooth, elastic, and stretchy. After the dough passes the windowpane test, it has been sufficiently kneaded. For ten minutes, cover and leave standing.

After the dough turns fine, you must shape the dough to the required size. It depends on your preference for the thickness of the dough. Some people like the dough to be thicker, but some don't. So it depends on your personal choice.

Ingredients For The Toppings

There are different kinds of toppings that can be used while making pizza. It should be according to your own choice. The primary taste develops in the pizza through its sauce.

So look to have the following ingredients for the pizza topping:

One pack (3 1/2 ounces) of cooked meat such as chicken or halal sausage in slices

5 cups of part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded

Grated Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup

Romano cheese, 1/4 cup, grated

Small Pieces of pineapple

Chopped Caspium and some onions


Handy hint: You must get mozzarella cheese, as recommended by the experts, and it is best used for pizza. When baking, you should also shred the cheese to melt it in the pizza dough.

Pan-fry the chicken pieces, and as it gets soft, marinate the chicken pieces by adding some spices. It will add taste to the meat, and when you eat it, it will boost the flavour of the pizza you make.

Now get the dough that you have placed in the perfect size. Next, put the topping that you have separated for the pizza. You must ensure that the topping gets equally spread on the dough. In some cases, you might see that some slices won't have enough topping after the pizza is sliced.

Therefore, it is essential to have the topping equally spread. Otherwise, it can ruin your efforts.

Don't forget to keep the dough soft on the edges. Usually, the dough crust is like to be soft and thin. Moreover, while you bake the pizza, the dough will get bigger, so it is suggested to keep the dough thin.

Once you have spread the toppings of chicken and cheese, add the cooked meat slices to add more flavour to your pizza. The sauce is the actual flavour of the pizza, so you must be sure while making a decision about the sauce. A passata base with mixed herbs or oregano will work really well. Otherwise, BBQ, white garlic sauce, buffalo sauce, etc., are some options you may also avail of.

Put the veggies and pineapple on the pizza, as capsicum and onion will be great while you eat the pizza.

Before you start the baking, you must preheat the oven to 450-500 degrees. Preheating will allow the pizza to get ready quicker than usual, and the toppings won't burn.

As you put the pizza in the oven, let it stay in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Then, as the dough changes its colour to brown, take the pizza out as it's ready to eat. Now, get your pizza slicer to cut pizza for accurate slices.

Surely this treat will be great for your family once they eat it.

Cooking something for the family can be great to put a smile on their faces. Therefore, you must try making this pizza as it can be a memorable moment for you in the kitchen.
