Ingredients for the pizza dough:
– 300g of pizza flour
– 1 teaspoon of brewer’s yeast
– 1 teaspoon of sugar
– 180ml of warm water
– 2 tablespoons of olive oil
– 1 teaspoon of salt
Ingredients for the topping:
– Thin slices of porchetta (about 200g)
– Mozzarella cheese
– Tomato sauce
– Red onion, thinly sliced
– Fresh rosemary, chopped
– Ground black pepper
– Extra virgin olive oil
1. Preparation of the Dough:
Dissolve the yeast and sugar in warm water and leave to stand until frothy. In a bowl, mix the flour and salt. Add the yeast and olive oil. Knead until you get a smooth and elastic dough. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume.
2. Spreading the Dough:
Once leavened, spread the dough on a previously oiled pizza pan, giving the desired shape.
3. Assembling the Pizza:
Spread an even layer of tomato sauce over the dough. Spread the porchetta slices over the pizza, followed by the mozzarella slices. Add the sliced red onion and sprinkle with fresh rosemary and black pepper.
Bake the pizza in the preheated oven at 220°C for around 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and crispy and the cheese is melted.
5. Last touch:
After cooking, drizzle extra virgin olive oil on top of the pizza right out of the oven for a touch of freshness.
Cut the pizza into generous slices and serve hot. This unique combination of flavors will make this gourmet pizza a real treat to enjoy and share with friends and family.
This gourmet pizza with porchetta, mozzarella and Mediterranean flavors is an excellent demonstration of how the Italian culinary tradition can be reinterpreted in a bold and delicious way.
