When spring falls and you really feel like spending a Saturday night with your friends or relatives, it’s time for a real homemade italian pizza recipe !
Ingredients for 4 portions (dough) for the real homemade italian pizza recipe
Brewer’s yeast: 25g
Oil: as much as will suffice
How to do it
Pour the flour in a quite big bowl; add the brewer’s yeast (that you have previously dissolved in a bit of lukewarm water and a pinch of sugar). Start blending and add salt, oil and water – a little at a time – . If the dough seems too sticky, add a bit more flour; instead, if it’s dry, you need some more water. Knead a long time ( this is the most important step because the dough will rise better if it’s well elastic).
Make a ball, cut a cross into it and put it in a bowl covered with a wet dish towel.
Let it rise at least hours, but with more time it will become even softer.
Now roll the dough out. You can divide it into 4 or 2 parts, depending on the thickness you want.
For the classic Margherita cover the dough with tomato sauce, oil, salt, oregano and mozzarella (bufala mozzarella is the top).
Bake it for 13-15 minutes, 220° C. Now you can serve your real homemade italian pizza
Pay attention to the comments I wrote before about the rising process.
I advise you not to use too rich stuffing if it’s summer. I usually choose tomato slices with parmesan slivers or vegetables. My favourite one: smoked ricotta and radicchio.
