Cuisine: Romanian
Serves: 3
  • Dough: for 3 large pizzas (tray diameter 40 cm)
  • 600 ml water
  • 750 g flour
  • 1 teaspoon dry yeast (25 g fresh yeast)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Topping for 1 pizza:
  • 2 medium potatoes sliced ​​thin (a slice - 2mm), I used the mandolin slicer
  • 4-5 slices of bacon (or bacon, 150 gr) or as much as you want
  • pepper
  • oregano
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • mozzarella (about 250g)
  • Topping 2: If you want to try something new and very tasty !!! confidently use these ingredients:
  • goat cheese (about 300 gr)
  • black forest ham thinly sliced
  • marinara sauce (home made or in a jar)
  • fresh spinach (which is placed at the end, in the last minute of cooking)
  • This pizza is the dream! Honestly, who likes goat cheese ... that is sensational;-)
  • Topping 3: Very successful and real Canadian ;-)
  • marinara sauce
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 200 gr fresh mushrooms and sliced ​​thicker (dehydrate very quickly in the owen)
  • Sun dried ripe tomatoes
  • pepperoni
  • green olives (optional) - sun-dried tomatoes are salted too
  • oregano to taste
  • mozzarella (300 gr)
  1. Method:
  2. For the dough I put water in a bowl (lukewarm) and I dissolved the yeast in it. Also it works and if you use fresh yeast. Dissolve also the sugar in water.
  3. We begin to gradually add flour, then add salt and oil and begin to mix by hand until you obtain a homogeneous dough, soft,slightly sticky (the dough is softer than bread dough !!!!!)
  4. Important: do not dissolve salt in water, that will kill the yeast, so add it in flour, after you started to mix it!
  5. Cover the dough with a towel and let it rise about 45 minutes then refrigerate it at least 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 430 ° F or 250 C, and begin to shape the pizza.
  7. I use round trays of pizza with a diameter of about 40 cm, you can use the square or rectangular trays. Brush the pan with a little oil then sprinkle cornmeal on the bottom tray as the dough does not stick.
  8. Divide dough into 3 equal parts.
  9. Put flour on the working surface and place 1 piece of dough into it, to dust it well. With your hands, roll the dough as much as you can, reaching punched through it, taking the dough in the air (as you saw on TV ;-)) then you can try to stretch as well in the pan until reach the edges of the tray. The dough is very elastic!
  10. After you stretched the dough well into pan, slice the potatoes and cut them in very thin slices. procede the same with bacon!
  11. Add a generous layer of mozzarella, then place the potatoes all over the pizza then sliced ​​onion and then the slices of bacon (I used fresh and dried) and then sprinkle a little pepper on top, oregano and salt (over potatoes, although the bacon is salty ...). I've sprinkled very little olive oil over the potatoes because I was afraid that the potatoes will dry out, but they will be fine without oil too, the bacon will release enough fat.
  12. Bake pizza in the preheated oven and remove it after 20-25 minutes!
  13. It is super delicious, potatoes are very good, and the combination with bacon and onion is sensational!
  14. Bone appetite!
