tomatoes, pelati or raspberry type – 2 pcs.
garlic – 1 clove
dried basil – 1 tsp
sugar – a pinch
salt – 1/2 tsp
olive oil – 1 tbsp
fresh yeast – 15g
milk – 4 tbsp
sugar – 1 tsp
wheat flour type 650 – 2 tbsp
wheat flour type 650 – 3 cups
lukewarm water – 3/4 cup (up to 1 cup if needed)
olive oil – 2.5 tbsp
salt – 1 tsp
mozarella – 150g
onion – 1 piece
smoked ham – 80g
oregano – 1 tsp
1. YEAST STARTER/LEAVEN (15 min)
Crush the yeast into a bowl, add sugar, lukewarm milk (approx. 35 degrees) and mix. Then add 2 tablespoons of flour and mix again until a smooth mass, without lumps. Cover with a cloth and set aside in a warm place for 15 minutes – during this time the leaven should grow a little.
2. SESAME ROASTING (3 min)
Roast the sesame in a dry pan for 2-3 minutes. Control its smell (it’s black, so you don’t know when it burns) in order not to burn it – when it starts to smell more intensively, put the sesame in a bowl to let it cool.
3. TAPENADE (5 min)
Add lukewarm sesame to the food processor or blender. Blend in pulsating to get wet sand. Then add a handful of olives, honey, crushed garlic, and soy sauce and blend again to obtain a uniform paste. Season with pepper and lemon juice to taste. If necessary, add more ingredient (e.g. olives or salt) to match the flavour and texture of the tapenade to your taste.
4. TOMATO SAUCE (15 min):
Pour olive oil into a hot frying pan, add crushed garlic, some sugar and a pinch of salt. Mix and fry for 30 seconds, then add the peeled and chopped tomatoes, mix and fry for about 10 minutes until most of the liquid evaporates and the sauce becomes thick and uniform. At the end, season with basil and salt.
5. DOUGH (5 min + 1h)
Pour flour, salt into a large bowl, pour the leaven and lukewarm water. Mix the ingredients with a fork and then knead the mass with your hands for a few minutes until the dough becomes soft and elastic. In the process, you can sprinkle them with a little flour, if it sticks strongly. At the end incorporate olive oil in the dough – knead it until it becomes uniform and smooth. After kneading, put the dough for 1 hour under a cloth in a warm place.
6. PIZZA TOPPINGS(5 min)
Cut the onion into thin feathers, ham into triangles and grate the cheese.
7. FORMING PIZZA (5 min):
Punch the rising dough. Then roll it thinly into a circle. Use your fingers to form the higher edges of the pizza.
8. ASSEMBLY (5 min)
Transfer the dough to a baking tray (lined with baking paper or sprinkled with flour) and evenly spread with tomato sauce. Spread the onion, grated cheese, ham and sprinkle with a bit of oregano.
9. BAKING (15 min)
Place the pizza in a preheated oven (preferably at least 230-250C/450-480F), at about 1/3 of height and bake for about 10 min-12 or less, so it will get browned edges. After 7 minutes, check its baking status – if your oven can reach high temperatures, the pizza will bake much faster.
Divide the hot pizza into pieces and serve with a little black tapenade. Don’t worry about timefall, build a temporal shelter and stop for a moment to enjoy this delicious pizza.
