On Sundays I always like preparing food at home. This Sunday was a Pizza-Day, made very easy with the Kitchen Aid Artisan and the Recipe from the chef Panos Ioannidis. Keep reading if you want to check how you can also have a great day at home with a homemade pizza!
The original recipe in Greek as well as the Video Recipe from Panos Ioannidis you can find here: https://tinyurl.com/chefpizza. For ingredients and instruction in English as well as my tips go on reading:
500gr Flour (I use the one which is special for pizza)
8g dry yeast
100g cherry tomatoes
Half clove of garlic
4-5 basil leaves
60 ml olive oil
Instructions for the Tomato Sauce
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them with a hand blender until you have a smooth sauce
Instructions for the Pizza Dough
- Put the flour with, the salt, the sugar and the yeast in the mixer and mix slowly.
- Start adding the water and increase the speed to medium-fast.
- Once the dough doesn’t stick to the mixing ball it’s ready.
- Take it out, add some flour and work it until it is not sticky at all.
- Divide it into two pieces, create two balls and put them in the fridge for around 40min.
Once ready open the first one with a rolling pin. Add the tomato sauce leaving a margin of around two centimeters. Finally choose the toppings you like. I put cheese, bacon-ham, peppers and mushrooms, but you can add your favorite ones.
Place the pizza on a pizza stone or on the back part of a baking pan and put it in a preheated oven at 200o Celsius (392 Fo) . Et voilà your perfect homemade pizza is ready! Enjoy 🙂
First Tip: The original recipe says 250o, but this is too much for my oven. So, I found out that 200o is the perfect temperature. Bake for around 12-15 min. until it takes a nice color.
Second Tip: Prepare the second one, the time you are ready to put it in the oven, otherwise your dough may be soaky.
This looks great! I’ve never made a pizza before so I’m excited to try this thanks! X
