No-oven Thin Crust Localized Pizza

Part of my monthly work-out routine.
Di ko sure kung matatawag pa ba tong pizza pero may sauce, cheese, and dough naman (see Mark Iacono) so I guess it fits. “Healthier” alternative sa mamantikang pizza ng Yellow Cab, Pizza Hut, etc.

Ingredients:
Dough:
2 cup Flour
2 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
1/4 cup Olive oil
1/3 cup water
additional flour for dusting the area

Sauce:
Garlic, minced
Onion, minced
Tomato paste
Tomato sauce
Oregano powder
dried Basil
Salt & pepper
Olive oil

Toppings:
Cheese, grated (preferrably Eden or other quick melt cheese)
Ham bits, cooked
Olives, pitted and sliced
Onion, thinly sliced
button Mushroom, sliced

  1. Mix the dry and wet ingredients for the dough separately.
  2. In your preferred kneading area, make a well with flour then pour in the wet ingredients.
  3. Mix then knead for about 5 minutes or until the dough is formed and there are no separate lumps of flour. Feel free to add more flour or water depending on the texture.
  4. Once formed. Cover with plastic wrap then let it rest for about 15 minutes while we make the sauce.
  5. Sauté the onion then garlic in olive oil.
  6. Add the tomato paste and continue to sauté until it darken, then add the tomato sauce.
  7. Add oregano powder, dried basil, salt, and pepper to taste. Mix well and let simmer for about 2 minutes. Set aside
  8. Once the dough has rested, divide it into 6 pieces which would result to 8 inch diameter pizza. Divide into less pieces if you’re planning to make bigger pizza.
  9. Flour your working area and flatten the dough as thin as you can. It could normally reach 8 inches in diameter. Feel free to make it bigger if you have a bigger stove and pan.
  10. With a non-stick pan, set to medium high heat and toast both sides for about 15-20 seconds each.
  11. Repeat steps 9-10 for every pizza you’ll make.
  12. Top the prepared dough with sauce, cheese, then the other solid toppings.
  13. Season with additional dried basil, salt, and pepper if necessary.
  14. In a non-stick pan, set heat to medium low, then place the pizza, cover and let it cook for about 12-15 minutes. Do not remove the lid as the heat will escape.
  15. Once the cheese has melted, check if the bottom has char marks. You may continue to cook it on higher heat if you want it crispier at the bottom.
  16. Transfer on a cutting board then slice.
  17. Optionally, but highly recommended, drizzle with fermented garlic honey (https://diauthenticrecipes.wordpress.com/2020/10/13/fermented-garlic-honey/) and sprinkle with dried chili flakes and rock salt
