Pizza Base instructions (can anyone help me translate it?)

Postby Lion » Tue Jan 24, 2006 4:11 pm

I have been wanting to have a go at making my own Pizzas for a while now (don't like the frozen bases you can buy in supermarkets), so yesterday in Mercadona I spotted a box that contains enough for two bases.

I think I understand the stuff I need:

Half of box mixed with 125ml of water, 2 tablespoons of oil, and half a teaspoon of Salt?

But I am a bit puzzled as to how long I need to cook it for once rolled out, it mentions 20 minutes but later on mentions 15 minutes, do I have to cook the base on it's own once rolled before applying the tomato puree and then cook again once topped?

Or is it a case of only cooking it once from it's rolled state with toppings applied, if so how long?

It says that you need to leave the dough to stand for 20 mins before you roll it out. When the filling is on cook for 15 mins.

'Reposar' means to let it stand..

Rll the mixture into a ball then let it stand for 20 mins, this gives you time to prepare the topping.
Put flour on the ball then roll out.
stick the topping on then cook for 15 mins or until the base is cooked.

Thanks, I would have forgotten to add the flour to the ball had I not read the latest reply!

Your pizzas look great...and for topping.. you had fun..for us pizza is a quick n easy dinner..those frozen bases are rather awful so we buy a fresh (not frozen" "4 quesos" pizza as a base and add ingredients we wish... but might have a go at the "mix" version when the the grandchildren come round..twill keep em busy for a while :lol:

Yeah, I buy the 4 Queso fresh one's sometimes although they are not that fresh in truth as the date on them lasts over a month so they are packed with preservatives, the base from this mix was top notch though.

Well done they look fantastic and it has given me an idea for the next time my godson visits he loves to cook and this will be right up his street I don't know why I hadn't thought of it before. Thank you Lion.

A topping idea if you aren't veggie, we had them in Italy, is a Breakfast Pizza of sliced fresh tomatoes cook for about 10 mins. then add pre-cooked bacon, crack eggs on top and cook until the eggs are the way you like them.

My hubby doesn't like the tomato paste stuff and prefers sliced fresh tomatoes cook for about 5 mins. then add slices of mozzarella and gorgonzola and a drizzle of olive oil and cook for a further 10 mins. or so, yummy and it converted me to liking blue cheese.

use different brand of dough mix myself, havent tried that particular one.

However, try rolling grated cheese into dough, for extra flavour, or (accidental creation by kids) various toppings into dough ball, and toppings on top, looked yukky but tasted great!!
sorry no pics..................
