Home-made pizzas!

Posted on: March 7, 2010

After reading up on traditional Italian style of pizza making, I decided to have a go at making one together with a friend! This is not going to be a very structured post as we were quite busy making the ingredients for the pizzas so I just snapped photos here and there.

I made 2 kinds of pizzas: a more traditional pizza Margherita with some modifications and a seafood based pizza. Both of them didn’t really adhere to any fixed recipe as we just bought random stuff from the supermarkets and whatever was at home.

It starts with a bowl of flour and 3 other ingredients for the flour: salt, extra virgin olive oil, and instant yeast.

Then here is the start…..

….and this is the ending

English basil + sweet basil leaves, freshly plucked from a secret garden.

Tomato puree with sauteed onions

Buffalo mozzarella cheese

Dried shrimp, later sauteed with garlic

Smoked oysters

Baking in the oven!

Pizza 1: Black Forest ham, buffalo mozzarella, goat cheese, cherry tomatoes, basil

Pizza 2: Smoked oysters, anchovies, dried shrimp, capers, buffalo mozzarella, goat cheese, dwarf chilli

All in all, I think it was quite a success for my first time ever making pizza. There were definitely some mistakes made, especially at the dough preparation part but we were able to fix it well enough to be used for baking. The ingredients were actually a gamble but I think they worked together quite well. The flavours were strong, especially for the seafood pizza.
