Recipe for mini pizzas
Ingredients for the dough
200 ml lukewarm water
20 g fresh yeast
1 large pinch of salt
1 small pinch of sugar
1 tbsp olive oil
350 g flour
Ingredients for the tomato sauce
1 clove of garlic (peeled and pressed/chopped)
1 onion (peeled and chopped)
1 tbsp mild olive oil
½ can of Italian tomatoes (chopped)
1 pinch of salt
1 tsp each of oregano, basil and thyme (fresh or dried)
50 g cherry tomatoes
50 g buffalo mozzarella
1 fresh fig
50 g soft goat cheese
1 tbsp honey
2 sprigs of rosemary
2 fresh mushrooms
50 g grated Gouda
Ideally you should start with the pizza dough, because it has to rest for two hours after you have made it.
Fill a large mixing bowl with 200 ml of warm water, add the fresh yeast, salt, sugar and olive oil. Carefully mix everything together until the individual ingredients have dissolved. Now add the flour and thoroughly knead the mixture into an even dough. You can either do this with your hands (remember to wash them first), the dough hook of a hand mixer, or with a food processor. Once the dough is ready, roll it into a ball. Place it in a clean bowl and cover it with a clean, slightly damp tea towel.
Leave the dough in a warm, dark place (like under a blanket) and let it rest for two hours. While the dough is resting, you can start making the tomato sauce. Let mum or dad peel and chop the garlic and onion and gently fry them in olive oil. Then add the canned tomatoes to the frying pan and flavour the sauce with herbs and salt. Once the dough has risen, you can ask your parents to preheat the oven to the highest setting.
In the meantime, separate the dough into four equally sized pieces. Clean the kitchen counter and sprinkle it with flour. Place each piece of dough on the counter and roll it flat (around 5 mm thick) or use your hands to press it into a round shape (make sure to put some flour on your hands first).
Then spread the tomato sauce evenly onto the pizza bases and add your favourite toppings. The ingredients listed are only suggestions. You can top your own mini pizza with whatever you like. Finally, place the mini pizzas onto a baking tray covered with baking paper and put them in the oven for around 5–10 minutes.
