PREP: 40 min

INACTIVE TIME: 2-3 hours

COOK: 20 min




Crust Ingredients

500g - all-purpose flour

1 - package dry active yeast

1 - teaspoon sugar

1 - cup lukewarm water

- extra virgin olive oil

- salt

- flour to powder

Topping Ingredients

400g - mozzarella cheese

100g - freshly garden rocket

2 - large ripe tomatoes

100g - cherry tomatoes

4 - tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

- salt to taste


In a large bowl mix the warm water, yeast and sugar. Stir for some minutes, until the yeast dissolves and let set for 15 minutes. Add the flour, salt and 2 tablespoons olive oil into the yeast mixture. Stir for 10 minutes or until it begins to turn into a smooth an elastic dough. Lay out the dough into a lightly floured surface and knead with your hands for some minutes, until smooth and elastic. Place the dough in an oiled bowl and cover with a clean kitchen towel in a warm place to rise until it doubled in size, about 1h 30 minutes. Parboil the large tomatoes for 2 minutes, peel, and mince them. After the leaving time knead the dough again for 1 minute in a lightly floured surface or start stretching dough in the air instead of on a work surface, because gravity will pull and stretch it. Transfer the dough into an oiled pizzas hob and make a 2 cm border. Let the pizza rest for 10 other minutes before garnishing. Lay out the parboiled tomatoes on the dough surface and garnish with the cherry tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, sprinkle with oil and season with salt. Preheat the oven to 200° C and bake the pizza for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and spread/garnish with the freshly garden rocket and serve immediately.
