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!
Ingredients: (x 1 large tin)
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)
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! 😉
