Of course, classic Italian pizza is made in an oven, preferably with wood-fired wood. A very high temperature is needed for baking, and the process itself usually takes less than 10 minutes. However, you need a little more time to prepare it. This is because the classic yeast dough must rise before it can be heat treated. In the case of pizza from the pan, however, it is completely different. Here's how to make it.
A good pan is the key
Before you start preparing the pizza from the pan, make sure you have a good pan on hand. The success of the enterprise depends mainly on its quality. What is needed? She should:
- have a minimum diameter of 26 cm or slightly larger - that's what the smallest pizzas have,
- have a non-stick coating - e.g. Teflon or ceramic - in very good condition, without scratches,
- be quite thick and heavy - this ensures its good thermal conductivity, and thus - will allow the pizza to bake, not burn.
For this you will also need a wooden spatula or two, because the pizza during baking should be turned over. If you have these accessories, you can start the preparation.
Pan pizza: ingredients for the dough
In pizza, as in pizza, the most important thing is dough. The taste of the whole dish depends on its quality. It is no different in the case of the pan.
First of all, you need flour. However, since your pizza is supposed to be "fit", classic type 00 flour is not an option. Replace it with whole wheat flour, for example, which has more fiber and a lower glycemic index, or - if your pizza is to be gluten-free - a mixture of rice and corn flour (in equal proportions). For a 26 cm diameter pan you need approx. 50 g of flour - from this amount you will get a thin and crispy dough. And if you want the pizza to be more fluffy - you can increase this proportion.
Secondly - you do NOT need yeast. The lack of this ingredient means that your pizza does not have to grow. Don't worry: it will still be crispy and delicious, although the taste will obviously be slightly different from that offered by classic pizza ordered with delivery.
Third - milk, preferably semi-skimmed. For 50 g of flour, you need approx. 3 tablespoons. Mix everything with 1 egg, add approx. 1/3 teaspoon baking powder and spices - mainly salt, but you can also add oregano, thyme or rosemary, and sweet pepper. The decision is yours.
Before we go to baking, a few notes about the additions. Pizza is a dish that you can prepare in a lot of ways - also in the case of this from the pan waiting for you endless possibilities. However, if your version is to be fit, avoid greasy meats such as salami or bacon and too much cheese - you can skip it or add a small amount of mozzarella. Instead, reach for a large amount of vegetables - e.g. onions, corn, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, as well as arugula, fresh basil and olives. If you are thinking about a meat addition - bet on grilled chicken or chicken sausage.
What about sauce? Prepare it yourself. In the express version, just combine a few tablespoons of tomato paste with a pinch of salt, garlic, oregano and basil - it's ready!
