It’s pizza time again! Here’s a timeless classic, I know it’s a change of pace from my usually uniquely exciting pies but I like normal stuff too, stuff without kale and yuzu juice 😉 Enjoy and HAPPY EASTER!
Prep: 1 hr
Cook Time: 20-25 min
- 2-3 Roma tomatoes
- 1/2 C. Crushed tomatoes (to make a sauce)
- 1/4 C. Fresh Basil
- 1 tsp. Fresh basil (for sauce).
- 8 oz Fresh Mozzarella, sliced into medallions
- Olive oil, about 1 TBS
- Salt, pepper, fine herbs (whatever you like).
- 1/4 C. Parmigiano reggiano, the GOOD stuff!
- 1 (1/4 ounce) Package active dry yeast
- 1 C. Warm water
- 1 TBS. Sea salt
- 2 tsp Olive oil
- 2 1/2-3 1/2 cups Bread flour
- 1/4 C. Cornmeal
Dissolve yeast in warm water in warmed bowl.
Add sea salt, olive oil, and 2 1/2 cup flour.
Attach bowl and dough hook, turn to speed 2 and mix 1 minute.
Continuing on speed 2, add remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until dough clings to dough hook and cleans sides of bowl. Knead on speed 2 for 5 minutes. If making 2 pies split dough into 2 balls.
Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top.
Cover, let rise in warmest place in house away from draft until doubled in bulk (about 1 hour).
Punch dough down each ball.
Roll out dough as you like and place on your cooking surface. (stone, tin, pan, etc.) Use cornmeal to prevent stickingTo Top: lay down oil, crushed tomato and herbs (with that TBS of basil) process it briefly, then place mozzarella on top, Then romas, Finally sprinkle with Parmigiano reggiano. Bake until golden and top with fresh basil chiffonade.Enjoy and Cheers!
