Cover the bowl, let the combination sit for eight-10 minutes until foam begins to build on a surface.


Add flour, salt, olive oil to the yeast aggregate, and blend it well. Add water if required to make a clean sticky dough.


Dust a smooth flat surface with the flour and knead the dough until the dough has a comfortable, consistent texture. This should take approximately 2-3 mins.

Rub a mild coating of oil on the dough and installed in an air-tight box, and store in a heat region for 30-40 mins, till doubles the scale.


First, turn on an oven at 450°F (230°C) to preheat.

Take the prepared dough, punch down the dough, divide into 2-3 parts, and make balls. Now take one ball and roll it into the skinny circle/oval form. Now, take the pizza baking tray, brush it with the little oil, and place the rolled crust on it. Spread the Basil Walnut Pesto on the prepared crust, set up the tomato slices, and spread a few kinds of cheese (I used a few shredded and sliced cheese, reduce into an around small circle shape). Brush or spray oil on the crust, sprinkle edges with a few Italian Seasoning, and crushed red pepper. Pizza is prepared to bake.
