Tonight we make pizza.

Italian homemade pizza in Holland. That’s a dream coming true! 😉
Some days ago I was in the supermarket with my mother and we suddently decided to prepare pizza for dinner: I catched up the chance and put myself in the challenge to make pizza for the first time! Such an amazing success!DSC00493

Homemade pizza
Ingredients: (x 1 large tin)
500gr flour
25gr fresh brewer’s yeast
1 pinch of salt
3 tablespoons of olive oil
water at room temperature

Dressing: (you can choose what you like)
tomato puree
mozzarella-cheese chopped
black olives
onions (chopped and marinated with oil and black pepper)
ham or chorizo
sauted vegetables (spinach, artichokes, peppers, leeks…)

Mix the flour with salt and oil in a bowl.
Melt the fresh yeast with warm water in a glass, it will liquefy. Add it to the flour.
Knead the dough on a working-plan and add water to get a smooth and uniform consistence.
Let it rise covered in a bowl for at least 2 hours on a warm place, far from drafts.
Roll out the dough in a rectangular shape (or round shapes for single pizzas) and put it in a tin, previously oiled. Let it rise again for half an hour covered.
Dress up your pizza as you like: with tomato puree, mozzarella-cheese, vegetables, ham, mushrooms, onions, or just with spices like rosemary or fresh basil on tomato-puree.
Bake the pizza in (previously warmed up) oven at 200°C for 15 or 20 minutes or ’till is nice cooked, it depends on the oven sometimes.
Cut it in pieces and enjoy every single bite!
Pssss: …the day after will be even nicer! 😉
