When making Prosciutto E Funghi Pizza, I always recommend that you use what you have available, without spending lots of money. My basic pizza tool list is…
Wooden Rolling Pin
Many people prefer hand stretching, however every cook really should have a good wooden roller nearby too.
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.
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.
Ham is one of the oldest meats used by humans, and can be found in cuisines in almost every country in the world. Ham is pork from a leg cut that has been preserved by dry or wet curing, with or without smoking.
Smoked hams will lose about 25 per cent of their weight during the smoking process. Weird fact: Dwight Kalb, an artist from Chicago, once made a statue of Madonna using 180 pounds of ham.
These are all true, believe me!
