Pizza and spicy pizza oil

4 Nov

Home-made pizza dough

This week we had a pizza feast at our house with loads of home-made pizza. What gives your pizza the extra kick is when you make the dough yourself, it’s not even that difficult. And it’s great fun if you invite a group of people as you can make different toppings for every taste.

Ingredients:

500g flour

1 pack of yeast (fresh or dry)

1 pinch of salt

250ml luke-warm water

2-3 table spoons olive oil

Preparation:

1) Mix the flour with the yeast and the pinch of salt.

2) Add water and oil and stir quickly (either with your hands or with the mixer).

3) If you use your hands, make sure to work the dough well, you are even allowed to punch it and get rid of your negative energies :)

4) Cover the dough (not air proof, don’t use a lid, rather use a towel) and put it aside at a warm place for about 30-45 min (until it has doubled its size).

5) After having heated up the oven, roll out the dough on a tray (very thin, max 3 mm thick), garnish with your toppings of choice and put it in the oven for about 20min at 200 Celsius.

Pizza oil

Spicy pizza oil is a great Christmas gift for the whole family and it gives the extra kick to your pizza (drizzle it with a few drops before eating it). I sometimes also use it to make salad dressings (the garlic aroma is amazing).

Ingredients:

1 liter olive oil

a handful of fresh chilis

min 5 cloves of garlic

whole pepper corns

Preparation:

1) You will need a bottle with lid (to close the bottle air tight).

2) Finely chop the garlic and the chilis and together with the pepper corns place them at the bottom of the bottle.

3) Fill up with oil.

4) Close the lid of the bottle and let stand at a dark place for at least 1 week before you start using the oil.
