Mediterranean Pizza recipe
For the DOUGH
500 gr white bread flour " 00 type" , plus extra for dusting
A small pinch of sugar
7 gr dry yeast
2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for greasing
300 ml water at room temperature
FOR the TOP
Mediterranean Tomato sauce
black olives, ham red peppers, salami, ground mozzarella, basil
Put the flour, sugar and yeast in a bowl and let it rest of five minutes.
Add the oil and water. Stir with a wooden spoon until you have a sticky dough. Add a splash more water if needed.
Scatter a bit of flour over the surface and tip the dough onto it. Keep kneading until the dough is smooth and elastic enough and bring it into a ball shape. Brush a clean bowl with a little olive oil, put the dough in it and cover with cling film. Leave it somewhere warm for it to grow until doubled in size.
Heat oven to 220 o C.
Roll out the dough in a special pizza tray. Add a bit of tomato sauce on top and with a spatula spread it all over the pizza.
Build your own pizza. Put all the toppings you and your family want. The idea is to ‘build’ their own pizza.
Bake pizzas for 12-15 mins until puffed up and golden around the edges. Serve at once.
