Hello Everyone :)
- 500g flour
- 1 packet of dry yeast or 7g = ½ cube yeast
- 1 tea spoon of sugar
- 1 ½ tea spoon of salt
- 30ml oliveoil (4-5 heaped table spoons)
- 200-250ml lukewarm water
For the tomato souce:
- 300g sieved tomatos
- 1 tomato
- 3 little cloves of garlic (pressed)
- 2 heaped table spoons of oregano dry hearbs
- 2 table spoons of dry basil
You can use less oregano if you whish to! I used a lot more since I personally like the taste of herbs and garlic more intensive :)
1) To prepare the dough you’ll need good working hands unless you have a good hand mixxer :) But first: dissolve the yeast with a bit of sugar and 2 heaped table spoon of lukewarm water. Stir it and put it aside for about 5 minutes.
2) Now we can start making the dough. Take a bowl, add the flour and mixx it together with olive oil, salt, the rest of the lukewarm water and the yeast! Yumm,.. :) Once the dough is kneaded, put it aside for 1 hour somewhere warm and cover it with clingwrap!
3) Now the super delicious sauce: open the sieved tomato box and grind 1 fresh tomato into it. Flavor it with as much oregano, basil and garlic as you wish. I took at least 2 heaped table spoons of dried oregano and basil :)
4) Now it’s time to roll out the dough and get it on! :) You do want the dough to stay airy and fluffy so don’t roll the jeez out of it;-) Otherwise it gets dogged and chewy!
5) Now it’s time for the topping. To make a cheesy crust you will have to cut some gouda or edam cheese in long slices and place them on the pizza edge. Grap the edge and roll it over! Use a brush and add some egg white on the edges. It’s being used as „glue“.
6) Now you can use any topping you want :) I used some salami/peperoni, green paprika, red onions and lots of mozarella cheese :)
