Recipe of making the secrets of the pizza


  • a pinch of salt
  • 30 ml of olive oil
  • 10 grams of yeast
  • 300 ml water
  • 500g flour


flourSo the first secret. Flour! It must be from durum wheat. Then the dough for pizza will be the one consistency is needed. If you do not have that flour, try with the ordinary. I've tried and will say that this is possible but the dough will be slightly thicker than necessary. So the best is the right flour. The second secret is - you need to sift flour to enrich it with oxygen. Not all do this and it is a mistake. I bought a small metal sieve - see the photo. It does not take much space and is well up to the task.
flour2The yeast fill in cold water. 300 ml of water and 10 grams of yeast. In the flour make a hole and pour our yeast. For what? It is easier to make the dough just such consistency as needed. Take the flour as you need, the rest if it is much, will remain on the table. Knead as fast as if you are doing a massage.
add olive oilAnother secret is the ingredient that makes dough elastic. Do not use eggs, butter. Olive oil is needed and it is better if it would be an extra spin. Add to the batter and mix.
bowl flourPut in a bowl dusted with flour, cover with a towel and put in a warm place for 2 hours. If you did everything right, if the products were the same - so the dough will rise and be like we want.
5mm doughThen all is simple. Take a piece of dough to roll a layer to 5mm.
add ketchupLay into a mold. Grease ketchup. Put cheese - it's important. Most of the cheese is in the bottom 70 grams per pizza. You can use any solid sort. Soft is mozzarella. Put your favorite stuffing. The filling should not be a lot, about the same as the dough.
sprinkle cheesePut cheese about 50 grams.
bake at 250 degreesAnd bake at 250C to the rosy color of cheese.
Bon appetit!
