The Margherita Pizza, is a typical Neapolitan pizza, made with San Marzano tomatoes sauce or passata, mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, salt and extra-virgin olive oil. Traditionally, it is made with fior di latte (cow's milk mozzarella) rather than buffalo mozzarella.

PREP TIME: 30m

SERVES: 2

INGREDIENTS:

  • 300 grams strong flour
  • 7 grams instant yeast
  • 200 milliliters warm water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 jar passata
  • 150 grams mini mozzarella balls
  • Basil
  • Grated parmesan

    PREPARATION:

    1. Make the base: Put the flour into a large bowl, then stir in the yeast and salt. Make a well, pour in 200 milliliters warm water and the olive oil and bring together with a wooden spoon until you have a soft, fairly wet dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes until smooth. Cover with a tea towel and set aside. Leave for half an hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.

    2. Roll out the dough: Roll dough out of bowl onto a floured board, give it a quick knead, then split into two balls. On a floured surface, roll out the dough into large rounds, about 25 centimeters across, using a rolling pin.

    3. Top and bake: Put grill on to high. Place a heavy bottomed frying pan over a hot flame and heat. When it's very hot, throw in one of your pizza bases. Cook until you can start to see bubbles rising to the surface, then spoon on a layer of passata, dot with the mozzarella balls and sprinkle with grated parmesan, then take off the heat and place uder the grill for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Remove from grill, turn out of pan onto a board and drizzle with oil, a sprinkle of pepper and some freshly picked basil leaves.

    4. Enjoy
