There is no reason to buy anymore frozen pizzas from the supermarket after you learn this great pizza recipe. Its cheap, easy, tastes good and you have your pizza dough ready in 20 minutes.
Pizza dough for 5 thin pizzas:
- 1kg wheat flour
- 15g dry yeast
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- a pinch of sugar
- a splash of milk
- four spoons of oliveoil
- 6dl lukewarm tapwater
- a tin can of anchovies (optional)
Mix the yeast, sugar, salt, milk and oil with the water. Clean your kitchen table and pour the flour carefully on it making it a volcano shaped mountain (with the crate on the middle). Pour the liquid mix into the crater little by little while mixing. After you have mixed the ingredients, its time to work the dough with your hands for at least 10 minutes. Punch it, strech it, just work it hard!
Put the dough in a container and cover with a wet tea-towel. Let rest for at least few hours, -the dough is always better if you let it rest overnight.
How to cook the pizzas in a normal oven?
First of all, put your oven to the maximum heat. Not take a knuckle sized piece of the pizza dough and flatten it on the table and start rolling it. I used a empty wine bottle to do this, but you can also use a rolling pin. When the pizza base is thin, lift it on top of a baking paper of tin (that has been brushed with some olive oil). Now open the can of anchovise you might have, and pour some of the oils from it to the pizza base. This gives a very nice aroma to the pizza, do it even if you dont like anchovise! (optionally you can use regular olive oil). Pour also some tomato sauce on the base, and brush it around the base with your hands.
Take some slices of jamon serrano, and spread them on the pizza. Take a mozzarella cheese and rip it with your hands and spread it on top. You can also grate some parmesano cheese on it. Now its time to put the pizza in the oven!
Let the pizza bake in the hot oven for around 10 minutes, checking it often to make sure you dont burn it. When it looks ready, take it out, put a handful of rocket-sald on it and grate some more parmesano cheese on it. Now put it back to the oven for 15 seconds more.
Enjoy your pizza with good friends, and some bottles of wine.
