Even without an oven, it is possible to make pizza at home.Purchase a pre-prepared dough or make your dough from scratch in advance.If you want to add tomato sauce, cheese or both, cook the dough in a skillet on the stove top until it starts to brown, then flip it over and add it.After the cheese has melted, slice the pizza and enjoy it!
Step 1: Take the yeast and mix it with water.
The bowl of a standing mixer can be used to pour the water.The yeast should be dissolved in the water for about 10 minutes.The yeast can be seen dissolving into the water when the mixture becomes bubbly.Pre-prepared dough can be bought at the grocery store.
Step 2: Add flour and salt to it.
In the bowl of yeast and water, put the 2 cups of all purpose flour and the 1 12 of salt.Use a spatula or spoon to stir the ingredients.The dough can be mixed and kneaded.
Step 3: The dough needs to be kneaded for 8 minutes.
Either by hand on a counter or table or by using a standing mixer, you can Knead the dough.Place the dough on the counter and begin to stretch and squeeze it, folding it over on itself and stretching it again.When you poke the dough, it expands back out.If the dough is sticky, add a small amount of flour.The dough will have a thicker, heavier consistency if you don’t add too much flour.
Step 4: The dough should rise in one hour.
You can lightly oil the interior of a large bowl after you have kneaded the dough into a smooth ball by pouring cooking oil on a paper towel.Place the dough ball inside the bowl, cover it with a cloth, and let it rise for 1-2 hours until it is twice its size.You can skip the process of letting the dough rise if you are in a rush.The pizza will be very thin and crisp as opposed to fluffy.If you want to use the dough the next day, place it in a covered bowl and let it rise for 30 minutes.
Step 5: You should slice the pizza.
The pizza dough can be prepared while it is rising.Whether it be veggies like mushrooms or green bell peppers or meat like cooked sausage or ham, slice your favorite topping.Put the pizza topping aside and slice about 1-2 cups in total.
Step 6: Place the dough in a circle.
Take the dough out of the bowl and divide it into two equal sized balls.Pour a small amount of flour onto a clean counter or cutting board, then use your hands to spread out the flour into a thin, even layer.Place one ball of dough on the counter and use a rolling pin to create a circle that is slightly smaller than the pan you will be using to cook pizzas.The dough ball should be repeated with the other one.If you need to shape the dough into a circle, use your hands to encourage it.
Step 7: A pan is a good place to start.
Place the pan or skillet in the middle of the room to cook the pizza.Add a small amount of cooking oil to the pan and swirl it to coat the bottom of it.If you want to cook both pizzas at the same time, you can use two equal sized pans.Tawa, a thin metal pan common throughout parts of Asia, can be used to make stovetop pizza.
Step 8: On the other side, bake the dough.
Once the pan has heated, carefully drop one pizza dough circle into it and cook for about 1 minute until you see bubbles forming on the dough and the edges getting slightly golden.If the bubbles are large, you can deflate them with a spatula.If you wish, you can keep them if you want.
Step 9: The dough should be flip.
After one minute of cooking, flip the dough circle over using a spatula.The outer two inches (5 cm) of the pizza sauce should be spread over the dough.Put half the cheese on the pizza.
Step 10: The skillet needs to be covered to turn the heat down.
After you have made your pizza, put the lid on the pan or skillet you are using and turn the heat down to medium.The cheese can melt if the pan is covered.
Step 11: Cook for a short time.
The pan should be covered for 4-5 minutes.The five minutes are over.The bottom of the pizza should be golden brown if the cheese has melted.To make sure the pizza is ready, replace the pan lid and check it every minute or so.
Step 12: Put the pizza on a cutting board.
Once the pizza is ready, use a spatula to remove it from the pan and place it on a cutting board to cool.Another small pizza can be made using the other dough circle.Once both pizzas are cooked and cooled, slice and enjoy your pan made pizza!
Step 13: Turn the grill on to 600 degrees F.
The grill should be heated up to 600 degrees F.Next to the grill, set up a table that can hold all of your ingredients, as well as a spatula, a large spoon and an oven mitt.If that is a setting on your grill, choose direct heat.The grill’s hotness will make pizza taste like wood fired pizza.
Step 14: One side of the dough should be brushed with oil.
If your grill can fit both pizzas at the same time, use a pastry brush to brush olive oil onto one side of one of the pizzas.
Step 15: The dough will be on the grill.
The dough should be put on the grill with the side covered in olive oil.If you can, try to fit both pizzas on the grill.It’s a good idea to put the side facing up in olive oil.
Step 16: Take three minutes to cook.
The pizza dough should be kept in the grill for three minutes.The dough should look set and less soft after three minutes.
Step 17: Put the dough in the flip and top it off.
After three minutes, use tongs or a spatula to flip the dough.After you flip it, use a large spoon to spread sauce over the dough, sprinkle the cheese, and add the topping.If you cook one pizza at a time, you should only add half the food you prepared.
Step 18: Grill for a few minutes.
The pizza should be cooked for another three minutes.Check after three minutes to see if the pizza is done.If the cheese has melted, remove the pizza.If not, put the top back on the grill and make sure the pizza is done.
Step 19: The pizza has to be removed from the grill.
To transfer the pizza from the grill to the cutting board, use a pair of tongs or a spatula.If you are cooking the pizzas one at a time, put the next circle of dough onto the grill and repeat the steps of grilling, topping, and removing the second pizza.
Step 20: It’s cool to serve pizza.
Allow the pizza to sit for about three minutes to cool down.If you want to enjoy the pizza while it’s hot, use a large knife or pizza wheel.
