Create delectable pizzeria quality favorites like Veggie Four-Cheese Italian-Blend or Grilled Flatbread with Three Cheese Blend; Spicy Pepper Jack Cheese and Chicken or Pepperoni and Cheese Stuffed; Stir Fry Chicken with Imported Mozzarella or White Bean Hummus and Wisconsin Asiago Cheese at home that are as good as or better than what you can get in your neighborhood. Supermarkets, specialty stores and the internet have exploded the home pizza pie producing industry with ready-made pizza crusts and sauces, refrigerated and frozen dough, and kits with dough, sauce and toppings. You can put a pizza in the oven or on the grill in little time. These are great time-saving products that can be very good, but genuine pizza making starts with homemade dough, homemade sauce and high-quality, fresh spices, herbs, vegetables, meats and cheeses.
For the dough you need:
7g dry yeast
250ml lukewarm water
350g wheat flour
1tbsp olive oil
For my hawaii pizza topping I took:
1 can of tomatoes in can
1 can of pineapple in can
1 package of ham (about 200g)
2 hands full grated cheese
First put the yeast, water and sugar into a bowl and stir, until there aren’t clumps anymore. Now add all the other ingredients and make a nice dough. You can always add a little more flour if you need to. The dough is well, when it doesn’t stick on the bowl anymore. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let the dough rise for about 30 minutes. When time is over, roll the dough out on a baking sheet and put it on a baking tray. Mix the tomatoes with the herbs and pour them onto the dough.So cut the ham and the pineapple into slices and put them on the tomato sauce. I first put the ham and then the pineapple, this way your ham will stay juicy.
Put the pizza in the oven and leave it for about 30 minutes at 200°C. Enjoy this amazing pizza without any chemical or fatty ingredients we don’t want to eat. Enjoy!
Professionals use high gluten flour that is often difficult to find, but slowly becoming more readily available. Still, these bags are usually sold in a minimum of 25 pound bags, often 50 or 100 pounds. To find these bags of specialized pizza flour you have to visit a wholesale baking supplier or internet vendor. The price for a bag of high gluten flour is not particularly expensive, but keeping and handling it properly can be a chore. High gluten flour is the flour of choice as it offers the toughness and elasticity not found in regular or bread flour. The taste and texture are also different. A simple brushing with an herb infused extra virgin olive oil may be all you desire to top your dough, or you may wish to slow cook a pizza sauce from scratch using fresh tomatoes or canned tomato foodstuffs. Tomato based sauces can be simple preparations or time consuming, slow cooked, elaborate recipes that require a significant amount of time in the kitchen. Beyond traditional Italian-style pizza dough and sauce, the imagination can run wild and ingredients and flavors from international cuisines can be experimented with creating incredible new pizzas.
Whether you choose to whip up an authentic-style thin crust, or a more contemporary pie like Three Cheese and Wild Mushroom; Maine Lobster with Cherry Tomatoes; Taco with Cornmeal Crust; Grilled Foccacia-Style with Fresh Basil Sauce; Smoked Chicken Mexican-Style with Habanera Peppers; or even a dessert pizza such as Apple and Cinnamon, the possibilities are limited to the culinary imagination.
