Thin, thick, crispy or fluffy, pizza is delicious in all its forms. The landlady who has that personal touch is the one that makes our mouths water. Here is the recipe that we prepare at home:
Ingredients for Homemade Pizza with Pepperoni (makes 9 or 12 servings)
500 grams of wheat flour
1 tablespoon yeast in paste or grains
1 glass of warm water …
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon salt.
Salami or pepperoni
Onion, julienned (optional)
Preparation for Homemade Pizza with Pepperoni:
To make the Neapolitan Sauce See Recipe HERE
First of all, mix the teaspoon of sugar in half a glass of warm water and add the yeast. Leave it for 10 minutes until it ferments.
We place the flour on the table in the shape of a volcano and add the fermented yeast.
We knead and then add the salt. The amount of water is relative, I add it as we say to the eye percent 🙂 until it is smooth and does not stick to the fingers. approximately it is about 1/2 cup for every 500 grams of flour
Let the dough rest for at least 20 minutes in a warm and humid place. Put it in the oven with the light on (or turn the oven on for 2 minutes and turn it off) and put a glass of water inside. The dough will double in size .. (or almost: D) and will be fluffier.
We stretch the dough with a rolling pin so that it is 1/2 cm thick if you want it thicker and just 2 mm if you want it thinner and we place it on the tray in which we have passed oil with a napkin, then we bathe it With the Neapolitan sauce, we add mozzarella cheese, ham, salami, anchovies, onion, olives, with whatever you prefer!
Bake at 200ºC for 30 minutes and that’s it! (put the eye that does not burn)
We also have the option for those who do not like to knead, to make pizzas with pita bread, which are also super rich
