The Essential Ingredients
Achieving pizza perfection requires attention to detail in selecting ingredients. Our straightforward recipe calls for just five key elements: yeast, water, flour, salt, and extra virgin olive oil. Whether opting for dry or fresh yeast, the preparation is quick and foolproof. Salt imparts flavor and structure, while olive oil adds a touch of elasticity to the dough.
Choosing the Right Flour
The cornerstone of excellent pizza dough lies in the flour choice. Opt for the renowned Italian Type 00 pizza flour, distinguished by its higher gluten content and finer texture. This flour variety, compared to standard wheat flour, fosters optimal dough rising, resulting in a fluffy texture with a beautifully raised crust.
The Pizzastein Advantage
Enhance your pizza-making prowess with the Pizzastein, specifically the Thermomix® Steingut's "Pizzastein Peter." Unlike conventional stones that require preheating, this innovative Steingut form facilitates baking without prior heating, saving both time and energy. Its cold surface allows easy manipulation of the dough, shaping it to perfection before applying the tomato sauce and toppings.
Crafting the Perfect Pizza
Rolling out the dough is an art; it's not merely about flattening it with a rolling pin. The resting period ensures the yeast works its magic, creating a light and airy texture. Instead of rolling, gently shape the dough with your hands, preserving the gases produced by the yeast. This technique results in a delectably soft crust with a delightful crispiness.
Forming and Baking
Preheat your oven to 250°C for the ultimate pizza experience. Dust your work surface and hands generously with flour. Divide the risen dough into two balls, forming each into a round shape with a thicker edge. Carefully transfer the dough to the Pizzastein or baking sheet, spreading the flavorsome tomato sauce and your favorite toppings generously. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese bubbles, and the crust achieves a golden brown perfection.
