    Pizza

    Like all good Italian food, made from scratch from the scraps leftover in the kitchen.

    My lunch today...







    Really quick and easy to make, you can't beat homemade
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    For that size 150g plain flour 2g yeast powder, pinch of salt, put together in a bowl, get 125ml warm water and add it slowly while you mix it up with a wooden spoon, I never get all that water in though otherwise it turns to glue (more flour if it does), but just get it to take up all the flour so it's not sticky and start pounding it by hand so there's still a bit of dry in flour in the dough, then add extra virgin olive oil (1-2 tsp) and kneed without folding until the rest of the dry flour is absorbed, do all that in the bowl then get it in your hands and kneed it between both hands to get it even then leave it for 15 mins, it won't make much difference cos there's not much yeast so it won't rise, then roll out to about 10"

    Obviously it's very straightforward, the only tip I'll add is a hot oven (180c) without the fan assist, otherwise it cooks too quick and the base is still dough inside.

    Interesting about the fan assist.
    Do you use top and bottom elements or just top?
    I read pizza ovens are very hot so put your oven on the hottest possible, (for about 12 minutes).
    When I used to cook slower at a lower temp I always ended up with a rock hard crust base.

    Top and bottom, preheat and put in 2/3rds up to the of the oven, seems to work about right as the cheese starts to brown the base is ready, obviously it's trial and error, I wouldn't put it lower than 180, but yeah 190-200 will work, depends on how thin you roll it.

    What I do is pop the base in the oven without any topping on for a few minutes to crisp it up (On high heat) And then pull it out and add the topping before putting it back in to cook.
