Healthy pizza

Pizza is one of the most popular fast food. What really makes it is considered to be in fast food group? Probably because of the high calorific value, low in fiber, high in fat and selection of unhealthy ingredients. This can be solved by proper preparation and use of healthy, valuable products such as wholemeal flour, olive oil, flaxseed. We can prepare our own sauce and use high quality ingredients as pizza toppings, eg. white mozzarella and salmon. The fact is that the preparation is a little time consuming (kneading, waiting time until the dough grow, baking), but if we realize that when we order take-away pizza on the phone usually wait an hour and the price generally is also very high. Preparing your own pizza is healthier and much much more cheaper.

When the yeast will begin to work, add the rest of the flour and knead the dough. It may take up to several minutes. At the beginning can be a little sticky but as kneading should become more elastic. Put the dough covered with a cotton cloth to rise for about an hour.
To prepare the sauce, fry the finely chopped onion in oil. When slightly caramelised, add chopped garlic. Pour over the tomatoes and simmer until the sauce to reduce. Season to taste with salt, pepper, sugar and herbs.
