Puffy Pizza


For the dough

  • 4-5 cups of flour 
  • 4 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dessertspoon instant yeast
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of canola/vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • Sesame/black seeds

For the topping

  • 1 tomato
  • 1 green pepper or jalapeno
  • Mozzarella and feta cheese


Take a small bowl and add sugar and instant yeast in it. Add warm milk and water and wait until it rises. Remember milk should be not cold, but not too hot either. 
After it rises take it to a larger bowl and add oil, salt and egg white. If you do not know how to separate egg yolk and white, check it out from here Add flour to the mixture slowly and knead it until you have a very soft dough. It takes about 4-5 cups of flour.

Keep the dough in a warm place couple of hours until it doubles its size.

Then take small pieces from the dough and make small pizza base. 

Put cheese, pepper and tomato in the middle of it and apply egg yolk at the edges, then sprinkle some sesame and black seeds.

You can use any ingredients, such as pepperoni, mushroom, olives and even cook it plain as well, it will still taste good! Cover the oven grill with aluminium foil and put all pizzas on top of it. 
Bake 40 minutes in 375 F preheated oven. Your pizza is ready, enjoy!
