Pizza

When I was a kid and went to visit my Grandparents, I always wanted two things: the Sweet Box and pizza. The Sweet Box was an old food container always full with chocolate bars and candy for us. Always full. Until the time that my Mom put the Sweet Box on the forbidden list trying to avoid us eating sugar as often as possible. That dark era was called Prohibition of Sweets. And still, a small of bar of chocolate or a candy was always smuggled to us when Mom did not pay attention. Oh, I love so much my Grandparents! The other thing they always had on stock was pizza. My Grandma used to pre-bake the dough and put on the toppings, so she could freeze the slices for later. My Mom also treated us with these delicious pizzas a lot of times, and it became normal to open the freezer and find some pre-baked slices in it.

My freezer at home is very tiny, but I still wanted to live up to my own expectations and continue the tradition. In case I would not be in the mood to cook in the evening, we can enjoy the home made pizza dough with extra topping in 20 minutes. Now that I think of it, I need to get a Sweet Box. :)

 

Ingredients:

  • 0,5 kg flour
  • 3 dl water
  • 3 ts oil
  • 7 gr dried yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar, salt, basil, oregano

Mix the ingredients and knead until you have a smooth, springy dough. Place of dough in a large bowl and sprinkle flour on top of it. Cover the bowl and place on the warm radiator for about an hour until it has doubled in size. Roll out the dough and put it in the oven. I normally use a 34 x 24 cm pan. Bake the dough for 10 minutes on 170 degrees and let it cool down.

Now you can slice it up and be creative in regards to the toppings. I normally foil them separately one by one and freeze with a tomato based pizza cream, ham, some veggies and grated cheese. I also like the Bolognese version, which is very simple, just prepare 50 dkg minced meat as if you would eat it with pasta, pour it on top of the tomato based pizza cream and top it with grated cheese. On the day of baking them, just put them in the oven and bake them for 20-30 minutes on 170 degrees. You can find out easily if they are ready by  checking the middle of the slices. If they are totally baked and hot, all parts are equally eatable.
