Dear friends!!! 

yesterday afternoon we decided to make pizza. Actually, this is not pizza, I would call it “pizza bread”. Pizza normally is made with flour, water, salt, oil, and yeast. Instead of water, we used milk and egg. This makes the dough more elastic and soft. Switch on your radio and give us a chance to take you step by step to the perfect pizza bread for a night with friends. We had the company of electronic music. check it 

Ingredients:

250 g of milk

1 egg

50 g oil

40 g of fresh yeast

550 g of flour

sugar

salt

Warm up the milk (35 °C), add a teaspoon of sugar and dissolve the yeast. If you use the fresh yeast the amount will be the same while if is the dry one use the half. In the second case, the growing time of the dough will be at least of 3 hours.Include

Include the oil and the egg and mix vigorously. I usually use the olive oil that gives a very strong taste. If you do not like it, the sunflower oil it is a good alternative, with a more gentle taste.

Place the flour into a big container and give the shape of a Vulcano. Place two teaspoons of salt in one corner and pour the emulsion into the hole. Make sure that in this stage the salt does not enter in contact with the yeast. This will avoid the yeast to be killed.

Mix the dough until it will not be sticky. In case it is too watery, help by adding some flour.

Let it grow for a couple of hours into a humid warm place. I use to cover the dough with plastic film. I keep it in the oven (off). In case you do not have the plastic film, put a glass of water in the oven.

To make the pizza, put some flour on the table and roll the pizza by using a rolling pin. Normally the proper pizza is made by hand.

Since this is not pizza we can make our life easier.

Let the pizza grow once again for 30 minutes. In the mid time, switch on the oven at 250°C. Stuff the pizza as you like the more.

Enjoy and please share with us your experiments. We are sure you will have success.

If you will prepare the Hawaii, please do not let us know (that is not considerable for Italians, it is really too much).
