Pizza Dough

  • 500 ml of water
  • 800-900 g all purpose or bread flour (you can mix the two)
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2-3 teaspoons of salt
  • 1-2 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1 pack of dried yeast
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder

Pizza Toppings

  • 4 tablespoons of tomato puree
  • 200 g shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 50-70 g prosciutto ham
  • 1 shallot
  • cherry or regular tomatoes
  • jalapeno peppers
  • camembert cheese
  • dried oregano
  • olive oil


Pizza Dough

  • Mix water with sugar and add the yeast, let it activate for a few minutes.
  • Sift the flour. Add salt and garlic powder and whisk properly. Reserve a cup of the dry mixture.
  • Add water (with yeast) and olive oil. Start working the dough with a mixer or by hand.
  • It will take about 10 minutes. The dough is ready when it's no longer "glued" to the mixing bowl. Add more flour if needed.
  • On a floured surface, form a nice ball. Put into a bowl, cover and let rise for at least 1-2 hours, or overnight in the fridge.

Making The Pizza

  • This amount of dough is enough for 3 large pizzas, so divide the batch into 3 smaller balls. Store the unused dough in the fridge, up to 4-5 days or freeze it.
  • Start forming the crust with your hands. Pay attention to the edge, it should stay thick, not flat. Use a roller to finalize the round shape, but again, do not flatten the edge!
  • Place on a pizza pan or baking sheet and give the edge a few final touches to reach the shape you want.
  • Add tomato puree or marinara. Sprinkle with dried oregano.
  • Add cheese now. You don't want to add cheese on top of other ingredients, or they won't cook properly.
  • In with the prosciutto, shallots and tomatoes.
  • Some jalapenos to give it a bit of heat and a few slices of camembert cheese to make it complete.
  • Grease the edge with olive oil, to make it even more crispy.
  • Bake at high temperature! Laterally as high as your oven goes.
  • Once the edge is brown and the cheese bits golden, we are done. It should take 15-20 minutes.
