Pizza & Pastry Multimix from Orgran

Pizza is a traditional Italian flat bread baked in an oven typically topped with a tomato sauce, cheese and other foods: vegetables, meats, seafood. Nowadays, pizza can come as a deep-dish pizza, stuffed pizza, pizza pockets, pizza turnovers, rolled pizza, pizza-on-a-stick. A survey from 2004 showed that it’s not Italian but Norwegians that eat the most pizza (5.4 kg/person a year), followed by Germans. Pizza Margerita was called after Princess Margherita of Savoy, the wife of Italian King Umberto I (1878–1900). Apparently her favorite pizza toppings were tomato, basil and mozzarella.

* The Orgran gluten free flour mix for pizza contains more food additives than conventional (wheat based) pizza flour. As much as I found it very delicious, it is healthier to use it in moderation (just like any other foods).

Needed appliances

  • A bowl
  • A measuring cup
  • A spoon/spatula or a sushi stick
  • A cutting board
  • A knife
  • A baking plate
  • Baking paper
  • A pre-heated to 200 oven
  • Optional: a kitchen balance

Tips

  • If you do not have any red sauce at home or tomato puree – you can use ketchup.
  • You can easily make your own red sauce by heating some tomatoes on a pan together with Italian herbs and garlic.
  • According to the recipe printed on the Pizza flour box – the oil should be added to water with gist and then all together added to the flour BUT I have messed up the order (my partner was helping;) and we added oil to the flour directly. As you can see – it made no difference!
  • If you cannot tolerate even small amounts of cheese (dairy, lactose intolerance) – you can skip cheese or use a lactose free version
  • If you are in a hurry and don’t feel like cutting your vegetables – through some slices of g-f ham on your dough and you are ready to go!
  • If you like to have pizza dough edges filled with cheese – make them before applying the sauce (between the steps 10th  and 11th )

 

Preparation steps

  1. Switch on the oven, set it on 200 ºC
  2. Cover the baking plate with baking paper
  3. Wash and cut the vegetables
  4. Measure 250 ml of warm tap water and dissolve one tea spoon of sugar in it
  5. Add the dry gist to the sweet water and allow the gist to activate for 5-10 min before you add it to the flour
  6. In a meantime, place the flour in a bowl
  7. Now it is time to add the liquid fat to the activated gist solution
  8. Combine the liquid ingredients with flour and knead for 2-3 min
  9. When the dough becomes too sticky – sprinkle some gluten free flour on it (I used a leftover of a brown bread mix)
  10. Now spread the dough on the baking paper using your hand (sprinkle the dough with some gluten free flour)
  11. Apply the red sauce on top of the dough
  12. Decorate your pizza with anything you like
  13. If you want to use yellow cheese – I suggest to place it on top
  14. Now, place the raw pizza in the oven for 15-20 minutes

Enjoy your meal,
