Pizza Dough Method
You can either make your own dough following the simple steps below, or you can purchase a premade pizza base at your local store.
- Whisk yeast and lukewarm water in a jug. Stand for around five minutes.
- 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.
- Using a spatula, or your hands, mix the dough really well until smooth. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for five minutes.
- Lightly oil a bowl, and place dough in it and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes to an hour, or until it doubles in size.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for another 5 minutes or until smooth.
- Divide the dough into balls, and roll out bases to desired size.
- Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking.

Preparing Gamberi Pizza
Turn your oven on to 450-500 degrees or more and preheat for at least 30 minutes.
Spread out the dough in a rough circle, on a floured board or surface.
If you are using a baking pan, then create the pizza in that.
Open the sauce container, and start to spread the Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato Sauce around the whole base, taking care to leave a gap at edges.
Add the ingredients in size order, from large to small.
Cheese gets added last.
The toppings to add to this pizza are;

I find this pizza awesome by itself, yet why not pair it with another pizza as well?
Put the Gamberi pizza on the middle shelf of the oven and wait for approximately 10 minutes.
After roughly 10 minutes, check on the pizza.
Pizza should be ready within 15 minutes. However, allow it to cook to personal taste.
Globally, more than 10 million tons of garlic are produced every year. Many ancient civilisations, such as the Egyptians and Romans, embraced Garlic for its medicinal properties.
So many cuisines across the globe use Garlic. So many different dishes use garlic, it is probably easier to list the dishes that Garlic doesn’t go in. Garlic is a fantastic topping on pizza.
When making Gamberi Pizza, it’s always handy to have the right pizza making tools. Here’s what items I always recommend…
Glass Measuring Jug
I hate taking chances with portions, so having a quality glass jug with clear to read measurements a vital kitchen tool for me.
OK, not really pizza related, but a good chef apron makes me feel the part when I am making my pizzas. I’d probably wear a chef hat if I got one too!
A pastry brush is vital if you need to ever coat your dough in water, oil, eggs or more. They are cheap to have and very handy to use.
Small aquatic crustaceans with an exoskeleton and ten legs, Prawns are completely different creatures to Shrimps and similar. Prawns periodically shed their shell, to grow. The shell is made of protein, calcium carbonate and chitin, which is a substance similar to human nails and hair.
Prawns have plenty of vitamins and minerals, and a good source of zinc and B vitamins. They are low in unhealthy fats, and rich in unsaturated fats.
These facts will interest you.
We love maths
There is a mathematical theorem named after pizza cutting. The pizza theorem is so called because it mimics a traditional pizza slicing technique. It states that the equality of two areas that arise when one partitions a disk in a certain way.
Largest pizza delivery
The largest pizza delivery was organised by Pizzas 4 Patriots (USA), who sent 30,000 pizzas with DHL Express to the United States Armed Forces, in Kandahar Airfield, Bagram Airbase and Camp Bastion, Afghanistan, on 4 July 2012. The 12 inch pizzas were made by Great Kitchens, Inc. in Illinois in June 2012.
