Home made pizza from scratch. Very easy and rewarding.
- 300g of self rising flour
- 3 tea spoons of dried yeast
- 1/2 tea spoon of salt
- generous table spoon of olive oil
- 187ml of lukewarm water
Mix it all together initially using a spoon after a minute or so put your hand on it and work it for no lest than 15 minutes.The dough should be nice, shinny elastic and easily separating from your hands. It is quite of a work out. Leave it in the bowl (covered by tea towel) for no less than 45 minutes or like me make it in the morning get on with your day and whenever you ready finish it of…
Punched dough after all day rising. It was a very good dough but needed the punch.
1 can of organic tomatoes
1 tea spoon of sugar
1 table spoon of olive oil
1/2 tea spoon of oregano or more if you like it – I do.
Bring it all to boil and then cook it gentle for 15 minutes.
It can be blend or smashed with fork or just leave the tomatoes how they are in bigger chunks.
Other ingredients and baking:
Heat up your oven as high as it goes.
Whenever you ready come back to your dough divide it in two and prepare pizza base.If you can do it Italian style by swirling it above your head, If not just stretch it as evenly as you can on the baking pizza dish or any other, which is flat and suitable for oven backing. Spread tomato sauce and some yellow hard mozzarella on the pizza base. Put into the hot oven for about 12 minutes. When it is ready take it out and put on it what ever you fancy. It can be:
- salami, parma ham, olives, onion, cocktail tomatoes, spinach, basil leaves and of course white soft mozzarella and if you like goat cheese. Put it back to bake for another 5-6 minutes. Oh! it is really good!
And there is the final result.. don’t forget about good glass of wine to go with it…
Next day some left overs made a good work lunch… Without wine thou…
