Making pizza is a good bonding experience plus you are teaching your kids the value of hard work. Pizza is famous here in Singapore. You can just easily order and have it delivered but where is the fun in it? Grab your recipe book and engage the family. If you do not have a recipe, you can just refer here. Before anything else, you have to know that the preparation time is about two hours.

So, here’s how to make homemade pizza:

  • Secure the ingredients: The ingredients for the dough include 1 ½ cups of warm water, 1 pack of dry yeast, 3 ½ cups of bread flour, 2 tbsp of olive oil, 2 tsp of salt and 2 tsp of sugar. This is enough for two 12 inch pizzas. As for the toppings, you need tomato sauce, grated mozzarella and parmesan cheese, crumbled feta cheese, thinly sliced mushrooms, bell peppers, sausage, basil, pepperoni, onions and ham. For the equipment, you need a pizza peel (flat baking sheet), mixer and oven.
  • Making the dough: The first thing that you should do is place the warm water in a large bowl of the mixer. Then sprinkle the yeast. After 5 minutes, add salt, sugar and olive oil. Use paddle first but after a minute, replace it with the hook attachment. Knead the dough for 10 minutes. Let it sit for 1 to 1 ½ hours.


  • Prepare oven: Preheat your oven for 30 minutes (or more). The temperature should be at 450°F. After leaving the dough, it is time to divide it in half. Make sure to punch it so it deflates.
  • Prepare toppings: The toppings will depend on what your kids like. Let them decide what they want to do with their pizzas. Just remind your kids not to overdo the toppings because it will affect the crust of the pizza.
  • Bake it: Using the pizza peel, flatten the dough with your hands. Start at the centre and work outwards. You should use your fingertips when pressing the dough; it should be at least ½ inch thick. Stretch it until you reach the desired diameter. Put the desired topping and bake it for about 10 to 15 minutes.

The pizza is now ready to be served. Singaporeans love pizza which makes this an excellent choice. If you invited friends over, you can serve pizza. They will surely love it. Pizza is best with a soda or a juice drink. If your child prefers water, leave it be.
