Pizza, Pizza! Eat all About it!

Standard

This classic Italian thin crust pizza was hand rolled by my awesome man Mike! The dough is hand-pulled and baked off at a super high temperature making it super yummy and tasty. Mike says his secret to a great dough is he puts a ‘glob’ of honey in the dough. “I don’t measure sh**” was his response when I asked how much honey haha.

After the dough it is all about the sauce.

The sauce is made by slowly roasting tomatoes with basil and garlic. Blend all the ingredients together and simmer to perfection. Finish the sauce off with a bunch of fresh herbs and little more salt than you think you need. Your dough is not very salty and depending on the salt level of your cheese as well you need to compensate by adding more salt to enhance the flavour. If you have made a salty dough and are using a salty cheese such as a parmesan or pecorino (both hard cheese) the salt level will be fine without adding much more. For our pizza we used mozzarella and cheddar with a sprinkling of finely chopped fresh herbs on top.

As a final touch, drizzle a nice olive over the pizza when you bring it out of the oven. Some fresh tomatoes on top also will make your pizza even more tasty.

Stay classy,
