Homemade pizza dough

Pizza Dough Method

If you don’t have much time, grab a premade pizza base at your local grocery store, or hand make your own pizza dough following the simple steps below.

  1. Whisk yeast and lukewarm water in glass or plastic container. Let stand for approximately 5 minutes.
  2. Add flour and salt in a large bowl. Create a well in the centre of the flour. Pour in the liquid yeast mixture and the oil.
  3. Using your hands or a mixer, mix the dough until smooth. Pour dough on a lightly floured work surface and then knead by hand for five minutes.
  4. Place dough into lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Sit in a warm place for roughly 30 minutes to an hour, to rise until it doubles in size.
  5. Fold the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently by hand for around five minutes or until smooth.
  6. Spread some flour on kitchen bench before rolling, in order to prevent sticking.
  7. Divide the dough roughly into equal amounts. Roll out pizza bases for the desired size.

  3. Leave sitting for five minutes.

Preparing Anchovies Pizza

Preheat your oven to roughly 500 degrees.

Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone or tray.

Alternatively, if you have a pizza peel, roll out to be smaller than that.

You start by spreading the sauce around. This pizza calls for Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato Sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or ladle.

Then start adding the largest ingredients, then work your way down. The last is any cheese topping, such as Mozzarella, which you should evenly cover the other toppings with, and then finally any herbs.

Toppings to put on this pizza are;

  • Anchovy Fillets
  • Cheese
  • Olive Oil

This pizza is very nice on its own, or why not with another style of pizza?

Cooking time

Put the Anchovies pizza in oven, and set alarm for ten minutes.

After 10 minutes, open the door and see how cooked pizza is.

Pizza should be ready within 15 minutes. However, allow it to cook to personal taste.

About Olive Oil

Olive Oil has been used in cooking for at least 5,000 years. Since Olives are technically a fruit, that makes Olive Oil a fruit Juice. The Olives are crushed like other fruits; oranges, lemons etc to get the Oil.
One olive tree can last up to 2,000 years, and can produce 30 kilos of Olives, which makes roughly 4 litres of Oil every year. Medical studies have shown that consuming olive Oil daily helps reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase the good one (HDL).

Pizza Tools

When making Anchovies Pizza, I always recommend that you use what you have available, without spending lots of money. My basic pizza tool list is…

Mesh Sieve

You will find having a seive such a useful element for pizza making as well as all your baking. It’s great to filter all flours through a fine mesh sieve, to make sure they’re ready for use.

Bench Scrapers

Good quality metal or plastic bench scrapers make it so much esier to both cut your dough, and scrape your bench. I prefer plastic to avoid scratching my bench.

Measuring Cups

Pizza making is all about precision, so having a full set of both wet and dry measuring cups on hand is critical. It is so important when making pizza dough to accurately measure all your ingredients.

 

Anchovies

There are 144 species of Anchovies, a small common saltwater fish. Anchovies are used in small quantities to flavor many dishes. They can range in length from 2 centimetres (0.79 in) to 40 centimetres (16 in) when an adult.

During the Roman period, Anchovies were eaten raw as an aphrodisiac. Fresh and dried Anchovies are a popular element in many cuisines around the world.
