Easy Pizza (9)

Ingredients:

  • 500 gr  flour plus extra for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 x 7 gr dried yeast
  • Semolina dusting, for dusting or bread crumbs
  • 4 heaped tablespoons Tomato paste
  • olive oil
  • 120 gr Parmesan cheese
  • 200 gr buffalo mozzarella
  • ½ a bunch of fresh basil
  • extra virgin olive oil

Directions: 

  1. Preheat the oven at 220 C
  2. Put the flour and salt into a large bowl
  3. Add the yeast to 325 ml warm water and stir to dissolve.
  4. Add the dissolved yeast onto the flour and mix everything well until you get a rough dough – if it will be to sticky add a little more flour
  5. Shape the dough into a ball, then cover with a towel and leave to rest for
  6. On a flour-dusted surface, knead the dough for 8 to 10 minutes, or until smooth and elastic. Split the dough into four equal-sized balls, knead each piece for a couple of minutes, then roll into balls and place on a clean semolina-dusted tray (if you don’t have semolina, it’s fine to use breadcrumbs too). Dust with a little more flour, cover with a damp tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place for around 2 hours, or until doubled in size.
  7. On a flour-dusted surface, use your hands to stretch a ball of dough into a circle, roughly 35 cm to 40 cm in diameter.  Repeat with the remaining dough, then sprinkle a large baking tray with the semolina and place the pizza bases on top.
  8. Evenly spread the tomato sauce over each base – you don’t want to use too much as the pizza bases will get soggy. Drizzle with olive oil, grate over the Parmesan and tear the mozzarella and basil leaves on top. Place the pizza in the oven for 7 to 10 minutes, depending on how crispy you like them, then drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and eat straight away.

Enjoy !

    Lovely Pizza Margherita, love your board and cutter! I always chuckle when my students say that – I didn’t know homemade pizza was so easy!

      Thank you for the nice words Azlin ! Me needed, and now I love to make it all the time for friends and family !

  2. I love making my own pizza and so glad you are making the base as well. Home-made is just better. Great toppings, especially that prosciutto. The photo is making me hungry.
