Super Bowl Pizza from scratch, with Kanta Awasthi

Super Bowl Sunday in the USA is more than a final showdown between the top two football teams in America. It's about carrying on a tradition- a tradition of a good football game, a tradition of spectacular half-time show, a tradition of splendid advertisements and tradition of Super Bowl Sunday party- an ultimate 'bonding over game' experience with sometimes gourmet hors d'oeuvre, but mostly just pizza and bear. In fact, Super Bowl Sunday, is the busiest pizza takeout day of the year. Domino’s Pizza expects to dish out 11 million slices to the nation’s football fans, an 80 percent increase over the typical Sunday, according to the chain’s website. So we thought, let's celebrate the great American football game, with Pizza- Pizza made from scratch, with Kanta Awasthi. And she has around one dozen grand kids who vouch for her Pizzas!

For the dough:
4 Cup Maida (all purpose flour)
4 Tbsp Vegetable oil
Salt to taste
Yeast- 1 pkt dry active yeast (put in one cup warm water with 1 tsp sugar- dissolve and cover, check in few mins- water must be bubbly, that indicates active yeast)
Make dough with this water. Allow to ferment in warm environment ( at 100 F for a second in an oven). Once it rises, in one hour, punch it down and let it rise again. Roll out to make crust. With knife make few dents so it doesn't puff up.
At 400 F, bake for a few mins till it's slightly brown, then turn and let that side turn a very light brown color too.
Save it for later in foil or make pizzas right away. (Photo- left, bottom)
Sauce for two pizzas
5 medium sized tomatoes, few chopped garlic cloves, green pepper according to taste- blended.
Cook the sauce in a pan long enough for it to come to boil. To this, add cumin powder, salt, a little sugar, ground roasted fennel seeds and oregano leaves. Make the sauce into a spreadable consistency.
Pizza: On the pizza dough, spread sauce, shredded low fat mozzarella cheese, and toppings to taste. Put it in the oven at Pizza setting.
Once cheese starts to bubble, it's ready. Enjoy!
Serve with Beer/ Coke.
And yes, may the best team win!!! :)
