Pizza 

Updated: Jan 20

This pizza recipe uses all fresh ingredients. Me and my family absolutely love this recipe. Feel free to add whatever topping you like. I topped one of my pizza's with 54% beef salami, spinach and onion. The other pizza has extra cheese and tomato on top. The cheese I am using is fresh mozzarella (straight from the water bag). Pizza is such a great comfort food and to be honest I would've had these two to myself but, as they say, sharing is caring.

500g strong white bread flour

7g yeast

2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
