Homemade Vegetable cheese Pizza

We can make this pizza with your choice of base, sauce and vegetables.
• 1 pizza base
• 2 tsp pizza sauce
• 2 tsp pizza mozerela cheese (store bought)
• 2 small green chillies chopped
• 12-15 small size paneer cubes
• 1/4 green bell pepper thinly sliced
• 1/4 red papper thinly sliced
• Few Corns
• 1/4 onion thinly sliced
• 1/2 tomato thinly sliced (remove pulp)
• Salt to taste
  • 600g strong white bread flour, plus plenty for rolling
• ½ tsp dried yeast
• 2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
1. Put the flour, yeast and 1 tsp salt into a large bowl. Stir in 500ml of slightly warm water and the oil. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, cover with a tea towel and put it in the bottom of the fridge. Leave dough to rise for at least 6 hrs or until doubled in size.
2. When ready to cook, bring the dough to room temperature.
3. Heat the oven to 200C. Dust 2-4 baking sheets with semolina.
4. Dust the work surface with flour, then divide the dough into 2 or 4 pieces. Knead each piece on the floured surface, incorporating enough flour to stop the dough being sticky.
5. Roll each piece into a pizza shape and lift onto baking sheets. Leave to rise for 10 mins while you sort toppings. Top the bases with your chosen ingredients, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and bake following the timings for each topping 18 mins for a large pizza or 12 mins for an individual or until the crust is crisp and the topping is bubbling.
