Bimbi has it own wood fire pizza oven, ask us when Frank will be making his fabulous
Frank’s Pizza Dough (makes 2 small pizzas)
½ cup of white flour 1 ½ cup of wholemeal flour (I use organic stone ground) ¾ cup
of room temperature water 1 table spoon of olive oil 7 grams of yeast 1 tea spoon
of sugar 1 tea spoon of salt (if you want bigger quantities email me)
Mix flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add water and oil. Stir until dough
becomes firm. Using your hands, put the dough onto a floured bench and knead it until
smooth and elastic. (You can use an electric mixer with a dough hook on low for 3
Spray a large bowl with some oil and put the dough in it. Cover with a clean towel
and let sit in a warm spot (not in the sun or on the heater).
After about 2 hours squash it up and roll it into a ball again. Let it sit for another
hour under the towel and then roll it out to fit on your pizza tray
(I don’t use pizza trays as I cook them the traditional way – in the wood fired oven
on the stone). Oil the tray and let it sit for about ½ an hour.
Put sauce cheese and anything else you want. Remember less is more. Traditional Italian
Pizzas don’t have a lot of ingredients on them.
