For The Dough

  • Strong pizza flour – 500 g
  • Salt – 4g
  • Coldwater – 325ml
  • Enough warm water – To dissolve the yeast.
  • Instant yeast – 7g packet

For The Topping

  • Tomato passata
  • Olive oil – virgin
  • Buffalo Mozzarella
  • Basil
  • And whatever you like to make the pizza fancy.


  1. First of all, take warm water and dissolve yeast in it.
  2. Blend the salt and the flour, and very gently stream the cold water, little bit by a quantity, keep adding the water until you get soft textured, stretchy dough. I do this by using a dough hook in a stand mixer.
  3. After that, in the end, dissolve the yeast and be assured of preparing the well-mixed dough.
  4. Now shift the dough to a gently floured surface and knead the dough for few additional minutes; keep kneading until you get a soft, stretchy round ball of dough. Keep it in a warm place and give it a rest in a covered floured bowl for 30 minutes.
  5. Take the dough after 30 minutes and chop it into three chunks. Stretch it and fold every piece four times; after each time, turn it 90 degrees.
  6. Finally, spread the ball and for 30 minutes, keep every ball in a banneton or bowl. Prepare your oven by pre-heating it to its maximum heat (mine is 250C) during this time.
  7. Rub some olive oil on your pizza pan and prepare it and it will prevent the pizza from sticking to the pan by creating a floured surface.
  8. Afterward, take out the dough from the bowl and keep it on a floured surface, roll it out in a disk shape, simply put your fist in the middle portion of it. To keep a thin base with a slightly thicker outside rim, rotate the dough in your hands; this way, you will create a real Neopolitan pizza base. It will be stretched under its own weight.
  9. Get the pizza pan, keep the pizza dough on the pan, and drizzle your favorite ingredients on your pizza to make it more delicious. Begin by rolling out tomato passata, a little bit of olive oil drizzled straight from the spoon, then mix mozzarella and basically all of the ingredients that you fancy.
  10. After that, keep it in the oven and cook at the highest temperature for 10-15 minutes or to the point it is wholly cooked.  I would suggest you use a wood-fired pizza oven, but yeah, when you don’t have access to it, make use of your regular oven.

  1. First of all, prepare the proper pizza dough, which should be soft and stretchable.
  2. After that keep pizza stone in the oven and prepare the oven by preheating it to 500°F.
  3. To make the cheese: Slice the mozzarella cheese into 1/4 inch thick pieces. Sometimes the fresh mozzarella is very watery (it can depend on the brands too). You can use a paper towel to discard most of its moisture; you should do this process for 15 minutes afterward. Dab the mozzarella by using the paper towel to discard any extra moisture.
  4. To bake the pizza: Dust a pizza peel by using cornmeal or semolina flour when the oven gets ready. (You can utilize a rimless baking sheet if you don’t have a pizza peel. Yet I would suggest you, spending a penny on pizza peel is a worthy investment!) After that, roll out the dough into a circle; and softly keep the dough onto the pizza peel.
  5. Using the back of a spoon to create a thin layer, roll out the pizza sauce on the dough. Now mix the mozzarella cheese. Drizzle up some kosher salt.
  6. In order to carefully transfer the pizza on the heated pizza stone, make use of pizza peel. Keep baking the pizza for about 5 to 7 minutes in the oven, until the cheese and crust get a lovely brown shade.
  7. Drop the spoonful of basil pesto. Cut it into pieces and serve it nicely!
