Still reeling after my stricken calzone on Tuesday, I prepared pizza for my girlfriend for Sunday lunch. I didn’t really feel too adventurous so I stuck to the same dough recipe I’ve been using recently. It’s one I’m beginning to feel really comfortable using – and whilst I’m sure I’ll experiment with other dough I’m glad I’ve got a recipe that I know I can create a half decent pizza from.
Type 00 flour 100% Water 63%, Active Dry Yeast 0.5%, Salt 2%, Oil (sunflower) 2%, Sugar 1%
In keeping with the above – I kept the toppings simple too – mozzarella, tomato & chorizo (although, I’m determined to call it ‘Spanish Sausage’ from now on – because I can never say the word ‘chorizo’ without sounding daft & the temptation to purposely mispronounce it ‘Chore-Itso’ is too great.)
Here are some pictures – I was rather please with the turn out.
And thankfully, the weather kindly allowed us to eat out in the garden – summer is on its way!
