Kitchenware:
- measuring cups
- measuring spoons
- rolling pin
- cutting board


Ingredients:
- 1/2 tsp. sugar
- 2-1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp. yeast
- 1 cup water

- mushrooms, sliced, to taste
- tomato paste, to taste
- canned pineapple
- ham, to taste
- olives, to taste
- capsicum, to taste
- onion, to taste
- jalapeņos, diced, to taste
- any other healthy toppings that might come to mind


Preparation:

1. Mix yeast with water and sugar, and pour into flour. Knead the mixture into a dough, and let rest for one hour.

2. Knead dough for five minutes, and then roll dough into a thin, circular sheet.

3. Preheat oven to 475°C.

4. Spread tomato paste on top of dough, and add a layer of cheese over it.

5. Cut toppings to desired sizes and add them on top of the cheese.
