Fluffy Pesto Pizza

This here is one of the best fluffy pizza dough recipes I’ve ever tried. It's absolutely delicious. I admit, it does take a little bit of time, since it’s difficult to make a fluffy pizza without proofing time. But good news is, you don’t need to actively do anything other than simply mixing the dough ingredients together, kneading for a moment, and waiting 2 hours. So really the only disadvantage is having to plan in advance. But it’s so, SO worth it.

For a change, I've decided to top it with green pesto, mozzarella, mushrooms, tomatoes, and caramelised onions. I highly recommend you try this combo on a pizza, it's just heavenly.

You can also try it with any other toppings – recently I made an all-vegan fluffy pizza with white sauce and it was SO good! I’ll definitely post a recipe for that soon!
