INGREDIENTS (10 portions)

10 g dry yeast

20 g sugar

30 ml olive oil

1.25 kg all-purpose flour, sieved

10 g salt

800 g tinned chopped tomatoes

INSTRUCTIONS

Preparation
Mix the water with the yeast and sugar in a bowl and let it soak for about 5 minutes in a warm place until it forms a foam. Add the olive oil. Put the sieved flour and the salt in a bowl, add the yeast mixture and knead into a smooth dough.

Cover the dough and leave it to rise in a warm place for 45 – 60 minutes.

Knead the dough again and divide it into 10 portions of about 170 g each. Before continuing, let the dough balls rise again for about 15 minutes.

Making the Tomato Sauce
Mix the tinned tomatoes with salt and oregano to make a pizza sauce.

Making the Pizza
Roll the dough balls out to form round pizza bases (each about 30 cm in diameter), spread them evenly with the pizza sauce and cover them with Oldenburger Grated Cheese Mix.

Baking the Pizza
Bake in a preheated oven, ideally on a pizza stone, at about 250 °C for about 6 – 8 minutes.

The Final Touch
Then cover with the tomato slices, olives and basil and briefly return to the oven. Drizzle some olive oil on it before serving.

TIPS FROM CHEF TO CHEF

01. Try using chili oil instead of olive oil before serving! Or as a variation, add thin slices of prosciutto before serving.

02. If this product isn't available, you can also grate our 2.5 kg or 3 kg mozzarella and gouda loaves.
