For 4 servings:
For the dough:
400 g flour
2 teaspoons dry yeast
200 ml water
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon raw sugar
a pinch of salt
In a cup mix the yeast and sugar with little water. Let it rest until the yeast begins to ferment (approx. 10 minutes).
Mix all ingredients and knead well. The dough must be soft and elastic but should not stick to your hands.
Put the dough in a bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel and let it rise for 2 hours. Knead again and let it rise for another hour (optional).
Divide into 4 equal parts and shape each part into a pizza with a rolling pin.
For the sauce:
1 onion, chopped
4-5 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
4-5 cloves of garlic, mashed
1 tablespoon olive oil
Stir fry the onion in oil for 3-4 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, mix well, cover and simmer until the sauce has reduced, stirring occasionally.
Put the sauce into a blender/food processor and blend/process until you get a smooth sauce.
Smear a little bit tomato sauce evenly over the pizza base and top with finely cut vegetables, like: onions, sweet peppers, hot peppers, zucchini, eggplant, olives, mushrooms, etc.
For the pizza in the image below I used: red onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, olives, garlic and basil.
Bake in de pre-heated oven until crisp and golden.
