Recipe: all times favourite PIZZAPosted: June 11, 2011
… because we all have to eat sometimes, don’t we? 😉
Some time ago I heard that people can be divided into two types. Those who like pizza on a thick pastry and those who like it on thin. I definitely like the thin one and that’s the best recipe I managed to try in my life (and I’m not looking for a new one anymore). It’s best not only because it’s delicious but also because it’s rather quick to make (dough doesn’t need to rise).
Makes a 32 x 38 cm pizza
1 tsp* salt
3 tbsp** olive oil (sometimes I also use rice oil)
1/2 – 2/3 cup*** of warm water
Put all the dry ingredients into a pan, slowly pour water and knead the dough. If you use mixer 5 min should be enough, if you do it by hands knead for about 10min, until the dough is flexible and doesn’t cling to your hands (you may need a bit more water or flour though – depends on flour you use).
When you knead it well, leave for about 5 min and then roll 32 x 38 cm rectangle. Put your favourite ingredients on (at my pizza: my best pizza sauce
My best pizza sauce (to smear on the dough):
can of tomatoes
chili cayenne (1/3 tsp*)
herbal pepper (1/2 tsp*)
green tabasco sauce (2 tsps*)
oregano (1-2 tbsp**)
basil (1-2 tbsp**)
garlic (1 tsp*)
Open the can and put the content into a pan, add all herbs (as much as you like) and fry until all liquid evaporate.
* 1 tsp = 5ml
** 1 tbsp = 15ml
*** 1 cup = 250ml
