ChefNorway’s Italian Pizza

Story

Everyone dreams of that delicious Italian pizza that you see on TV or have tasted on a trip to Italy. I’ve created this recipe, in hopes that it will take you a little bit closer to that dream. I love this thin crust pizza, super crispy, and very simple pizza with tomato sauce, Italian ham, basil, and mozzarella. “Pizza Prosciutto” as they would call it. But if you want to go back to the original, you need to exclude the ham and eat it as vegetarian would! Remember you need a pizza stone for this recipe.

US Measurements
1 can chopped tomatoes
3.5 oz. tomato puree
1.5 oz. olive oil
1 small red onion
A handful basil leaves
1 tsp. pepper mix
1 tsp. salt
1 cup white flour
½ cup water
1.5 oz. olive oil
0.35 oz. yeast
1/4th  tsp. salt
1 topped tbsp. pizza sauce
1 rolled out pizza dough
3.5 oz. mozzarella
6 basil leaves
1 slice prosciutto ham

Directions

Before you do anything, insert pizza stone to your oven, and give it maximum heat. The stone needs to be hot before we make pizza, and that will take at least 30 minutes. A pizza paddle is very helpful tool if you’ve got one.

 

Pizza Sauce

  1. Fry onion with olive oil on medium heat for 4 minutes.
  2. Then add tomatoes, tomato puree, and seasoning.
  3. Cook until water is gone, then add chopped basil leaves, and turn off heat.

Pizza Dough

  1. Add white flour, olive oil, salt and yeast to a mixing bowl.
  2. Add hot water, and mix lightly with your hands or a wooden spoon.
  3. Add flour to your kitchen counter and pour the dough mixture, out of the bowl over the flour.
  4. Add more flour on top, and start rolling it into a dough ball. It shouldn’t be too sticky, and it should feel light and easy to work with.
  5. Leave to rest for 5-10 minutes.

Pizza

  1. Roll out your pizza, it should be very thin!!
  2. Without any sauce or topping insert it into the oven, and bake for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Take out of the oven and add 1 tbsp. pizza sauce, and sliced mozzarella.
  4. Into the oven again for another 3 minutes.
  5. Then add fresh cut basil, and ham if you’d like that!

Summary Nothing beats a simple and easy Italian pizza. Thin pizza, with tomato sauce, fresh basil and mozzarella. If you feel ambitious add some real Parma ham. Baked on a pizza stone for a few minutes. Italia in one bite!
