To start, it’s essential to mention that the stones of GrillSymbol’s Pizza oven Pizzo are made in Italy. We must admit, pizzas and other pastries crafted on this stone are undeniably delicious!
Pizza making is a social activity, and everyone can create a pizza according to their taste, whether it’s a simple Napoletana, a classic Margherita, or a loaded Pepperoni. Moreover, individuals can tailor their pizzas with precisely the ingredients they prefer. Before baking, the first steps involve preparing the pizza dough and tomato sauce.
Pizza Dough Recipe (for about 6 pizzas)
We offer a super easy pizza dough recipe with only four ingredients that consistently delivers great results. Mix the ingredients, knead the dough to the right consistency, and let it rise (at around 40°C) for about an hour.
- 1 kg Pizza Flour (grind level 00)
- 10 g Dry Yeast
- 640 ml Water
- 6 g Salt
Tomato Sauce Recipe:
Craft the sauce to your taste. If you choose to make the sauce from scratch, peel the tomatoes, remove the seeds, boil the sauce, and season. Alternatively, for a quicker solution, unflavoured puree is readily available in stores. For our sauce, you’ll need:
- 1.5 liters Tomato Puree
- A bunch of chopped Oregano
- Salt and Sugar to taste
Additional Ingredients (Optional):
- Parmesan and Mozzarella Cheese
- Basil, Arugula
- Pepperoni, Parma ham
- Figs, Olives
- Champignons, Red Onion
Timing of Activities:
- The pizza dough rises for about an hour
- The oven heats up for 30-40 minutes so that the stones heat up evenly
- Cooking tomato sauce takes 15 minutes (if you make ready-made puree)
- Preparation of onions, mushrooms, etc. 10-20 minutes
Why emphasize timing? Because when the pizzas enter the oven, things move swiftly! The pizza is ready in the oven in 1-2 minutes, so it’s crucial to have everything at hand during the cooking time.
If there’s leftover pizza dough, shape it into a ball and bake a delightful focaccia in the pizza oven. Additionally, you can utilize the residual heat of the pizza oven to simmer stews.
