Pizza (Quatro Stagioni is given as example)

Quatro Stagioni

Ingredients:

For the tomato sauce:

  • 50ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • A small bunch of parsley
  • 100g of tomato juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

 

Pizza topping:

  • 250g tomato pulp
  • 100g Kalamata Olives
  • 200g mushrooms
  • 100g salami
  • 100g ham
  • 100g artichokes in olive oil
  • 150g Mozzarella
  • 50ml extra virgin olive oil

 

Steps:

For the tomato sauce:

  1. Put 50 ml olive oil in a pan and fry 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic for one minute, then add the chopped parsley and the tomato juice (from the tomato pulp jar).
  2. Add salt and pepper to taste then let the sauce cook for 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes.

For the pizza:

  1. Choose either a fluffy or crispy dough for the pizza and spread it in the tray where you will bake the pizza only after you greased it with olive oil and you lined parchment paper on it (if you don’t have a wooden oven ). The dough should be about 1 centimeter thick.
  2. Sprinkle on the surface of the pizza the tomato sauce you just prepared earlier, several chopped tomatoes pulps and 50g of grated mozzarella.
  3. Divide the surface of the dough into 4 equal parts, tracing lightly with a knife without cutting the dough. For each quarter of the pizza you can add different ingredients.
  4. In every quarter of the pizza, add these 4 ingredients: Kalamata olives, ham, mushrooms and artichokes, then sprinkle all over with small cubes of mozzarella (100 g) and a little olive oil. You can add salami instead of artichoke or you can put salami on a quarter and then put small artichokes all over the pizza.
  5. Put the prepared pizza in a preheated oven at 220ºC for 25 minutes.
  6. To bake the pizza faster and avoid burning the ingredients, you can bake it in the preheated oven at 300ºC for 15 minutes without adding the final ingredients (Kalamata olives, ham, mushrooms, artichokes, salami and mozzarella). You can add them 5 minutes before taking the pizza out.
