Whether you are using it as a main meal or an appetizer is a choice, but it will serve your needs.

Parts of this pizza

This one you will see has almost the same unique parts of the pizza. But we will be describing it for you here.

Pizza dough

Of course, this makes the crust and the pizza dough base. It just has to be equally flavorful, and it makes the perfect base as well.

The kind of pizza dough you use may vary if you’re going to buy it from the shop especially. Consider making it a real dough to attain a soft, chewy dough.

The sauce

Again you will need the unique recipe for the sauce to make the pizza sauce. You can buy it in the store or make a new one with your favorite flavors at home.

Notice that you can also use tomato sauce to make the recipe. In most cases, if you balance the flavors and ingredients, you can be sure it’s tasty.

Some of them are even richer since you can use the white sauce for them.

Choose the toppings

In this case, you are using black olives and sausages. Just make sure you choose the perfect types of sausages and then cut them into thin slices. You can use the different kinds of onions to make it too.

The cheese

One of the significant parts of any pizza is the cheese. You should know that you will not make a good pizza when you don’t use the cheese. A simple mozzarella or parmesan cheese are all you need.

How long will it take you to make the pizza?

I will have the breakdown for you here on how long it should take to make the pizza.

So then it will take about 10 minutes to make the dough.

You should also give the dough about 30 minutes to rise fully.

Meanwhile, you should give the dough about 20 minutes to preheat fully.

Go on to prepare the toppings, and this should take you about 10-15 minutes to make the toppings ready.

Start to roll the pizza dough sheet, and this should take you about 10 minutes.

Add the toppings, and this should take you about 5 minutes.

Baking it should take at least 15 minutes, but this will mostly depend on the oven you have, though. So basically, we are saying you should take anything between 1 – 1½hrs to have it on the table. However, if you have the dough ready, you should have the pizza on the table in just a few minutes.

Before making a pizza, remember you will need to cook the sausage first. We like to steam the sausages for this recipe. When you steam it, then you’re sure it’s going o be a tasty pizza in no time.

Small holes should be pierced on the cake base to prevent the crust from swelling up during baking, which will affect the appearance of the pizza.

If you want it to be crispy, you can either use the pan with holes or cook the crust first before adding the toppings.

The tools you should use

For this recipe again, you will need the steamer for the sausages. You can make it in your pot, or better yet, buy this BELLA Two-Tier Food Steamer. I have it, and of course, it makes the steaming process much easier for me.

The baking pan you use should be the perfect size for your pizza too. I like to use the crisper to attain the perfect crispy pizza. I always buy the pizza pan with holes.


What sauce to use before the black olive pizzas?

You can make homemade pizza sauce or even make tomato sauce if you like. If you want, though, you can use the white sauce to make the white pizza as well.

How long will it maintain the freshness?

Like every other pizza, remember you’re safe when you eat it fresh from the oven. After you finish it, then you should store it in the fridge. It will stay for about four days into its new state, but if you want it to last longer, then you should set it in the freezer.

How to make the black olives pizza step by step?  


Prepare the dough

Warm the milk, add yeast, mix well, and set aside to form a yeast liquid. Mix all the ingredients except butter and knead into a smooth dough. Next, add butter and knead until it expands, and leave it in a warm place to rise to twice its size.

Refrigerate the dough

After the dough is fermented, take it out, spheronize it, and put it in a freezer bag. The next step is also vital. So then you should put it in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Just before you start working on it, then you should take it out to warm up.

Roll the dough into a sheet

After the dough has returned to room temperature, place it on the board and roll it into a dough sheet. Make sure you have it attain the perfect size of the baking pizza pan(brush some oil on the pan before putting in the pizza crust).  

Cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for 15 minutes.

Also, steam the sausage in a steamer for 15 minutes, let cool and slice it. Remember to then cut the onion, green pepper, carrot, and black olive into rings.

Layer it to make it an authentic pizza

After the pizza dough is proofed, shape it with your hands. Also, remember that the periphery of the dough is higher than the center. This will help to make sure the dough contents remain within the pizza dough. Again, use a fork to make some holes on the crust.

Again put a layer of tomato sauce first, and then set the sausage slices around the crust. Follow it through with the layer of onions, put carrots and onion rings. Finish off by sprinkling the cheese, and finally put sausage and black olives
