Pizza Dough

Stoooop !!!!! I think I put enough “o” and enough exclamation points… 😉

We are going to stop buying industrial pizza doughs made with weird ingredients.

We are going to make pizza dough.

Yes we are going to make pizza dough because it’s really super easy and simple. If you have a food processor, you can make this recipe with your eyes closed! And without, it works too with a bit of muscle energy…

A few simple and healthy ingredients, a bit of kneading and an hour of rise, and that’s it. This is all you need to get a delicious pizza dough. You are going to be surprised by the result! A super crunchy crust, not too thick if you spread it well, like in your favorite Italian restaurant!

And after, it’s more than easy: you just add whatever you like!

Traditional pizza with tomato sauce, white pizza (here I took the topping of my tarte flambée and it was absolutely delicious!!), just do as you feel it. I usually add very simple ingredients (ham, olives, mozzarella, chorizo, tuna, eggs…). Do not hesitate to comment this post with your toppings of choice…

As far as cooking is concerned, I do recommend a very hot oven (220 degrees for me) and you will let your pizzas around 15 minutes in it. If you have a pizza oven, it’s obviously even better!!

My advice for the eggs: to keep a very flowing yolk, pour the egg white on your pizza, cook 4-5 minutes. Add the egg yolk and serve right away (or put back in the oven just for a minute).

The utensils:

A food processor with hook (or a bit of arm strength 😉 )

And a rolling pin!

That’s it…

Shall we now?

Let’s go to Italy!

The recipe, Chef!

    Cette pâte peut-elle être congelée ? Si oui,
    avant ou après la pousse?

      Bonsoir Isabelle, oui c’est possible, après la pousse, enveloppée dans du film alimentaire au contact.

    Bonjour Emmanuelle
    La pate peut elle être préparée la veille?
    J’entends souvent dire que plus la pate repose, meilleure elle est.
    Belle journée
    Et belle année

      Bonjour Charlotte, oui à condition de l’envelopper dans du film alimentaire pour éviter qu’elle ne croûte 😉

    Miam, ça met l’eau à la bouche ! Merci pour vos délicieuses recette. Ma garniture préférée : je fais cuire la pâte juste avec la sauce tomate, à la sortie du four j’y ajoute un peu de jambon cru, de la mozza de bufflonne (que j’ai sortie suffisamment tôt du frigidaire pour l’avoir à temp’ ambiante) et un peu de roquette. J’y parsème occasionnellement des copeaux de parmesan (bon ça y est, j’ai faim, grrrrr)

    Est-ce qu’il faut refaire pousser la pâte après décongélation ?

      Bonjour, non il faut juste la laisser décongeler à température ambiante 😉
