Pizza Dough Method
You can either make your own pizza dough following the simple steps below, or you can purchase a premade 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 Scarmoza Pizza
Preheat your kitchen oven to approximately 500 degrees.
Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone (if you have one) or on a metal tray for the kitchen oven.
Alternatively, if you have a pizza oven, roll out to be smaller than your pizza peel.
First, spread the sauce around. This pizza calls for Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato Sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or the blunt side of a knife.
You should start by 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.
The toppings to include on this pizza are;
- Jamón de Parma
I find this pizza good as is, or you could enjoy it with a fresh salad?
Put the Scarmoza pizza in oven, and set alarm for ten minutes.
After 10 minutes, open oven and look at pizza.
The pizza should be done within roughly 15 minutes. Always cook to personal tastes.
A Southern Italian cow’s milk cheese, Scarmoza is a stretched-curd cheese, in which the fresh curd matures in its own whey for several hours to allow acidity to develop.
It has an extremely delicate flavor, with a slight taste of fresh milk. There are two types of Scamorza, plain or smoked.
When making Scarmoza Pizza, we always recommend that you use whatever tools you are able to get your hands on. Our basic pizza tools are…
Dough storage containers must be of high quality and airtight.
Quality Food Containers
Leftovers need to go somewhere, and I don’t enjoy using aluminium foil or plastic wrap all the time. A couple of good air tight containers should be in every home.
Sometimes called a paddle or shovel, a pizza peel is a vital tool for those who make pizza regularly.
Jamón de Parma
Jamon de Parma is an Italian pizza topping that can be found in high-end pizzerias and fast-food restaurants alike.
This unique pizza topping is made from strips of crisped pancetta, which are combined with chunks of parmesan cheese and then topped with homemade raspberry or strawberry jam. The result is a sweet yet savoury flavour that makes it hard to resist.
How to Store
Have leftover pizza? Here’s what to do.
Store in the fridge
Leftover slices of pizza may be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
You can store leftover pizza in the freezer for up to 3 months. Reheat from frozen as directed above until heated through.
Warm in the center of a 450 degree F oven for approximately 6 minutes, on a pizza stone if possible, until heated through. See our article on reheating pizza for more.

In Hebrew, “kosher” means fit or proper. Kosher pizza means fit for consumption by Jewish people. Most dough, sauce, and cheese can be kosher on a pizza.

Microwaving pizza gets a bad wrap, however try adding a glass of water when you zap a slice. The water works to help avoid the usual sogginess of microwaved pizza.
Why is my dough not stretching?
Pizza dough won’t stretch much until it has rested long enough to use. If your dough is resisting your stretching attempts, you need to let your dough rest at room temperature for at least another half hour or so.
