Margherita pizza

Method

For the dough

  • In a mixer’s bowl add the water, the yeast, the honey, and whisk well.
  • Add the flour, the salt, the olive oil, and beat with the hook attachment at medium speed, for 13-15 minutes, until there is an elastic dough.
  • Transfer to a floured bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and allow 2 hours for the dough to rise. The dough will not rise a lot.
  • Divide it into 3 pieces, transfer the pieces to a floured baking pan, cover with plastic wrap, and let them rise for 2-3 hours. Alternatively, refrigerate them for 1-2 days.

To assemble

  • Preheat the oven to 220-230ο C (430ο F) set to fan.
  • Roll out one of the dough pieces in a baking pan. 
  • Optionally, add the parmesan into the sauce. Spread 1/3 of the sauce over the dough, the grated mozzarella, the mozzarella pieces, the olive oil, and pepper. The mozzarella should be well dried from its moisture.
  • Follow the same process for the other two dough pieces and the remaining ingredients.
  • Transfer the pizzas -one at a time- to the hot pan and bake each one for 10-15 minutes.
  • Serve with basil, mozzarella, and olive oil.
