Tuna Pizza

     Do you like pizza? The answer to this question is always yes, of course! So today I am going to show you how to make tuna pizza from scratch. It's very simple and it does not require any mysterious skills! I like making pizza and I love eating it. I have different pizza recipes but this one is basic and you can be creative and change ingredients to suit your taste. Well, let's start our pizza!



1- Pizza Dough:

- 150g All purpose flour
- 100g Corn flour (can be substituted with all purpose flour)
- 3 tbsp Virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp Vinegar
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Yeast 
- 1 tsp Sugar
- Warm water 

2- Pizza Sauce

- 100 to 150g Tomato sauce
- 1 tsp Dry garlic
- 1 tbsp Fresh herbs (I used rosemary and thyme)
- 2 tbsp Olive oil
- Salt and pepper

3- Pizza Filling:

- 1 Tomato, thinly sliced
- 1 Onion, thinly sliced
- 1 Green pepper, sliced
- 1 Red pepper, sliced
- 100g Canned mushroom
- 150g Canned tuna (good quality tuna gives better flavor)
- 150g Mozzarella cheese, sliced thinly
- 100g Cheddar cheese, shredded
- Some black olives, pitted


1- Activate your yeast in a small bowl of water by adding a tsp of sugar, then prepare the dough by mixing the ingredients together and adding warm water slowly until smooth. You may use a stand mixer with the dough hook attachment, a rubber spatula, or simply your hand. Cover the bowl and allow to rest and rise for 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the temperature. Anyway, you want your dough to rise enough before using it.

2- While your dough is resting, prepare all the other ingredients. When it's ready to use, roll out into a thin circle and place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper (or greased and floured if you don't have parchment paper) and preheat your oven to 200C°.

3- layer with tomato sauce. Then layer tomato and onion slices, tuna, mushroom, green and red pepper, then mozzarella and cheddar cheese and finally some black olives. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes (cooking time may deffer so make sure your pizza is well cooked before serving it)

Enjoy your pizza!
