Instructions

Make the pizza dough

  • Pour the ingredients into the machine and set the program for fresh dough, number 13 on the Kenwood. NB: when using the bread machine the ingredients should be placed in the exact order as listed above, liquids first.
  • For best result, let the dough rest in the fridge overnight, well floured and wrapped in a plastic bag, otherwise, it will crawl all over the fridge.

Prepare the pizza

  • Once the dough is ready, cut it into 7 equal sizes and lay them down on a well-floured baking sheet.
  • When the dough is rolled flat, it needs to rest for at least 10 minutes before it rises. In the meantime, put the pizza stone in the cold oven and set the oven at 430 F - 220 C.
  • Once the oven reaches the temperature of 430 F - 220C, take the pizza stone out of the oven and lay the dough on top.
  • Top it with the topping of your choice
  • Cook it in the hot oven for 10 minutes

Pizza with Mushroom

  • Lay the pizza dough over the hot pizza stone
  • Pour 2 tbsp of tomato sauce, add a pinch of salt, and spread the sauce over the dough with the back of the spoon
  • Place uniformly over the dough the mozzarella cut in cubes
  • Add 3 chopped basil leaves and 2 sliced fresh mushrooms
  • Cook in the hot oven for 10 minutes
  • Once ready, place it on a cutting board and drizzle some extra virgin olive oil before serving it

Pizza alla Norma: fried eggplants and salted ricotta

  • Peel and cut the eggplants into slices
  • Fry them in abundant hot olive oil
  • Once they are ready place them over a paper to absorb as much oil as possible
  • Season them with salt
  • Lay the pizza dough over the hot pizza stone
  • Pour 2 tbsp of tomato sauce, add a pinch of salt, and spread the sauce over the dough with the back of the spoon
  • Place over the dough uniformly the mozzarella cut in cubes
  • Add a few slices of fried eggplants
  • Grate some salted ricotta (or parmesan) on top and some basil leaves
  • Cook in the hot oven for 10 minutes
  • Once ready, place it on a cutting board and serve

Pizza with zucchini and smoked scamorza

  • Cut the zucchini in long slices, lengthwise
  • Fry in abundant hot olive oil
  • Once ready, lay them on a paper to absorb all the excess oil
  • Season with salt
  • Cut the smoked scamorza into slices
  • Lay the pizza dough over the hot pizza stone
  • Pour 2 tbsp spoons of tomato sauce, add a pinch of salt, and spread the sauce over the dough with the back of the spoon
  • Place uniformly the slices of scamorza
  • Lay the zucchini slices over the scamorza
  • Add some basil leaves
  • Cook in the hot oven for 10 minutes
  • Once ready, place it on a cutting board and serve

White Pizza with Fresh Cherry Tomatoes and Buffalo Mozzarella or Burrata

  • Lay the pizza dough over the hot pizza stone
  • Place uniformly a few slices of mozzarella or burrata
  • Spread the cherry tomatoes cut in half around the mozzarella slices
  • Add 3 chopped basil leaves
  • Cook in the hot oven for 10 minutes
  • Once ready, place it on a cutting board and drizzle some extra virgin olive oil before serving it

White Pizza with roasted peppers and parmesan flakes

  • Place the peppers in a very hot oven or under the grill
  • Once the skin on the top of the peppers is burned, turn them around and put them back in the oven
  • Do that until all sides of the peppers are burned
  • Place the hot peppers in a paper bag and keep them closed until they cool down. Their steam will help to separate the skin from the flesh
  • Once cold you can easily remove the skin from the peppers
  • Remove the seeds and place the slices of the peppers in a bowl
  • Season with salt, extra virgin olive oil, and basil
  • Lay the pizza dough over the hot pizza stone
  • Place uniformly the mozzarella cut in cubes
  • Lay the roasted pepper stripes across the pizza
  • Cook in the hot oven for 10 minutes
  • Once ready, place it on a cutting board and drizzle some extra virgin olive oil
  • Top with parmesan flakes, few basil leaves, and serve it

White pizza with red chicory radicchio and gorgonzola cheese

  • Cut the red chicory in slices, place it on a baking tin over parchment paper
  • Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt
  • Bake in a hot oven 350 F - 180 C for 15 to 20 minutes
  • Lay the pizza dough over the hot pizza stone
  • Place uniformly the mozzarella cut in cubes
  • Lay the roasted red chicory slices across the pizza
  • Spread some gorgonzola over the chicory
  • Cook in the hot oven for 10 minutes
  • Once ready, place it on a cutting board and serve it

White pizza with zucchini flowers and ricotta cheese

  • Cut the flower sepals (the small green mini leaves that covers the base of the petals)
  • Open the flower to make sure there are no insects inside
  • Wash the flowers with running water
  • Place them upside down in a colander to drain out any water from inside the flower
  • Lay the pizza dough over the hot pizza stone
  • Place uniformly the mozzarella cut in cubes
  • Lay the zucchini flowers cut in half
  • Add the ricotta cheese and drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil
  • Cook in the hot oven for 10 minutes
  • Once ready, place it on a cutting board and serve

Notes

  • make sure the pizza dough has rested in the fridge overnight
  • the oven and the pizza stone has to be extremely hot before you prepare the pizza
  • pizza stone should always be kept hot inside the oven
  • once you put the topping on the pizza put in the oven immediately
  • I sometimes add some extra virgin olive oil and sometimes I don't. It is up to you, if the cheese is already rich or the vegetables have been fried, I usually do not add it
