Ingredients: medium, total time: 60 min. 2 serving


  • 400 g 00 flour/+ 100 g for folding and spreading

  • 400 ml of lukewarm water

  • 22 g of fresh yeast

  • 150 ml lukewarm milk

  • 1 Tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

  • 11 g of salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon of sugar

  • oregano/ optional

Topping Pizza:

  • homemade Italian Paste San Marzano/ or bought

  • oregano

  • mozzarella

  • spicy salami of your choice

  • olive oil EVO peperoncino



  1. Crush the fresh yeast in a little milk, add a pinch of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of sugar. Stir to combine all. Leave the dough to rise for about 10–15 minutes.

  2. Pour lukewarm water into the deeper bowl and add raising yeast, rest of salt. Gradually add 400 g flour and work manually or with spoon.

  3. The dough must be slightly gooey and stretchable, but also soft and uniform. After that, cover the bowl with a clean cloth and let the dough rise for 3 hours. The dough must triple well.

  4. After the spinning time, work the dough by hand or in a dough machine.

  5. Sprinkle the work surface with a little flour.

  6. Knead the dough again, folding it a few times with a scraper until you have a dough that holds its shape, when it is quite soft and does not stick too much to the work surface. This will take about 10 minutes.

  7. Fold the dough twice on all sides and up and down, including the edges, with a gradual sprinkling of flour, always repeat the folding two more times.

  8. If the dough is still soft, sprinkle it with flour and make two more folds at the top and bottom. Turn the dough upside down, and you will see that it has now taken shape, smooth it over the surface.

  9. After that, knead the folding dough two more times while gradually adding a little flour and finally move on to making this pizza!


  1. Grease a pizza pan or baking dish with a little olive oil. Stretch the dough all the way to the edges and flatten it well by hand.

  2. Spread the dough with the tomato peel and arrange the salami on it, add mozzarella and a little olive oil and bake at 200 °C for about 7–8 minutes.

  3. While the pizza is hot, add basil leaves and oregano as desired.

Buon appetito!

NOTE: If you want your pizza to have a more Mediterranean taste, feel free to add half a teaspoon of oregano to the dough!
