Best Homemade Pizza
Pizza is always a good idea, I think it’s even better when you make it with your hand.
I really like this recipe because you don’t have to wait long for the dough to rise. It should be left to rise for at least 30 minutes, when you are hungry it is ideal not to wait too long for it to grow.
For weekend evenings when you want to spend time with friends, or watch a good movie or just want a pizza, I leave here the recipe I use.
Here you have the recipe filmed, and it is written below.
For the dough we need:
500 grams of Flour
325 milliliters of lukewarm water
3 grams of salt
7 grams of Fresh or Dry Yeast
a teaspoon of sugar
a teaspoon of olive oil
You will also need:
A teaspoon of olive oil
And your favorite pizza toppings (we made one with pepperoni and another with tuna)
First, we take care of the dough.
Put the flour in a bowl, add salt and mix. Then make a hole in the middle of the bowl with flour and add the yeast (if it is fresh yeast, grind it). Then add the sugar over the yeast and mix. Take warm water and pour a little over the yeast to melt. Mix lightly in the center of the bowl where the yeast is, then cover the bowl with a towel and leave for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, when the yeast has activated, we start mixing the yeast in the center with the flour from the rest of the bowl, gradually adding warm water.
Thus, we obtain the dough that we knead until it becomes firm and no longer sticks to the fingers. Add a teaspoon of oil and knead until incorporated. Place the dough in a bowl, cover it with a towel, put it in a warm place and let it rise for at least 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the tomato sauce with which we will grease the dough.
In a bowl put the tomato sauce, add a teaspoon of oil, a pinch of salt, a pinch of pepper and optionally oregano. (If the tomato sauce you use is too thick, you can add a little water to dilute it, to make it easy to spread).
Then we prepare the toppings we want (grate the mozzarella, cut the salami, etc.) so that we are ready to assemble when the dough is ready.
If the 30 minutes have passed and the dough has grown nicely, we start spreading it with a twister (if you don’t have a twister in the house, a dose of beer is perfect). Put some flour on the surface on which we will spread the dough so that it does not stick to it.
After spreading the dough, we put it in the tray, grease it with tomato sauce and then we put the ingredients we prepared.
Put the pizza in the preheated oven: Leave it for 10 minutes at 220 degrees and another 15-20 minutes at 165 degrees. (Of course, we check it during this time because it depends on the oven you have, it can be ready earlier or later).
