Pizza, originally an Italian delicacy, earned the reputation of a true global food over the years. Perhaps there is no place on earth where you can’t find a pizzeria. Being a pizza fan like millions other, I always used to have the fresh baked pizza from pizzeria and never really thought to try my hands into it. But after going through few videos in youtube I made my mind to give it a try at my own kitchen. After a couple of trials things became clear on how to make a perfect pizza dough. Pizza dough is the most important thing to make a good pizza; toppings can be anything of your choice. For this present pizza recipe, I used grated mozzarella cheese, bacons and bell peppers for topping. However, you can make it completely vegetarian using mozzarella slices, tomato, olive, mushrooms or spinach as topping. I can honestly assure you that if you have time and a bit of patience, making Pizza at home is not at all a tough job.
