Pizza Time

I now crazy about italian food, first pasta, now pizza but I am not crazy over risotto. All along, I was quite impressed with a small pizza oven, name G3 Ferrari Napoli Oven that sells at Tangs Department store for S$299.

Went with hubby over there, he was not impressed with the oven, so did one of my friend, she did advise me not jump into it too fast. Okay lah! i bought a pizza stone from there to try it first.

I remember my oven has a pizza funccion, I decide to use this function and also use ieatishootipost's pizza recipe to do it.

I use food processor to do the dough as what the blog says, I did not like the idea, I found that the motor gets heated up too easily and the soft dough got stuck in the shaft, the next time, I do, I will use my mixer.

Although, I do not have canned tomatoes, but I use tomato ketchup to do as a base for a starter and I do not have a perfect round for the cooked pizza but I loved the crust of the pizza.

Next shopping, I need to buy a wood pizza peel, it a must when you do pizza.

Below is the recipe cut and paste from the blog
1 1/2 cup Bread Flour
1 1/2 cup All purpose Flour
1 teaspoon yeast
3/4 tablespoon salt
1 1/4 cups cold water
3 tablespoons olive oil
Half cup semolina flour
Basically, you add all the dry ingredients into the food processor, then start by pulsing the dry ingredients first, then add the water and olive oil. Once all the flour and the water is just combined, stop the machine and let it rest for 20 mins. This resting period is important. This is when autolysis occurs and it makes it much easier to get that nice smooth and stretchable dough. After the 20 mins, turn the food processor on for around one to two minutes and you will end up with a smooth gooey, slime-like mess. All you have to do next is to dust it with flour and knead a couple of times by hand and you will get a dough ball as seen above.

Just leave this dough to rise in a warm humid area for an hour or so then punch it down and divide into four dough balls and leave it to rise in a container brushed with a thin layer of olive oil. You can rise it overnight in the fridge or for about 1.5 hours in an oven with a bowl of hot water.

In the meantime, you can start making the tomato sauce.

What you need is 2 cans of whole tomatoes, garlic, onions and olive oil. Now, the Italians don't even bother to cook their sauce beforehand. However, I personally prefer sauteeing the garlic, onions and adding the chopped tomatoes, oregano, salt and pepper and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
