Learn How to Make the Best Homemade Pizza with Gennaro Contaldo | Citalia

  • Опубликовано: 9 дек 2015
  • Pizza is arguably Italy's most famous dish and can now be found all over the world. We're most familiar with takeaway and even frozen pizza but once you've made your very own pizza from scratch, there really is no going back.
    In this video, Italian chef, Gennaro Contaldo shows you how to make homemade pizza at home - don't worry, you don't need a wood oven to follow this recipe. Here you'll learn how to make, knead and shape the dough before topping with delicious Parma ham and fresh rocket for a simple yet delicious meal!
    (makes 2 x large pizzas)
    For the dough
    500g strong flour
    5g salt
    10g fresh yeast
    325ml lukewarm water
    Topping for Margherita
    150g tinned chopped tomatoes or tomato passata
    Salt & pepper
    1 x tablespoons extra virgin olive oil & extra for drizzling
    1 x tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
    1 x ball mozzarella
    A few fresh basil leaves
    Topping for Prosciutto & Rocket
    Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
    1 x ball mozzarella
    1 x tablespoon grated parmesan
    4 x slices of Parma ham
    Handful of rocket
    Juice of ½ lemon
    First make the dough. Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water. Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Gradually add the yeast mixture, mixing well until you obtain a dough. Place dough on a lightly floured work surface and knead for about 10 minutes. Cover with a cloth or cling film and leave to rest in a warm place for at least 30 minutes until the dough has doubled in size.
    Preheat the oven to 220 degrees centigrade.
    Take the dough, knock it back, then divide into two pieces, cover each with a cloth and leave to rest in a warm place for a further 30 minutes.
    Meanwhile prepare the toppings. For the Margherita, place tomatoes or passata in a small bowl, season with salt & pepper and stir in 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Roughly chop the mozzarella.
    Sprinkle some flour onto a clean work surface and with your fingers spread each piece of dough into a roughly round shape with a border, make the dough as thin as you can but be careful not to tear it. Sprinkle some semolina or flour onto 2 large flat baking trays and place the pizza bases on them.
    Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over each base. On one, spread the tomato mixture evenly over, sprinkle with parmesan, scatter a few basil leaves over and top with mozzarella.
    On the other base, arrange mozzarella and parmesan all over, top with Parma ham.
    Place both pizzas into the hot oven and bake for 8 - 10 minutes.
    In the meantime, toss the rocket in a little extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice.
    Remove the pizzas from the oven, top the Parma ham pizza with rocket and serve immediately.

    I put a stone plate in a charcoal bbq. Make sure it's really hot, keep the lid on and you'll get good results.

    I put a lot more olive oil. It's practically the best part. 🤤

    there is no need to learn so much about pizza. What is required is a special oven which goes up to 800°C. Otherwise, with a normal stove which goes up to 200°C, this is not a pizza.

    Gennaro - thank you. This was the best pizza dough I ever made in my life. The crust was cripsy on the outside, soft and tender-chewy. I used my sheet pan upside-down as a peel to bake it on. Perfect. I'll be following this recipe from now on. Easy to remember the measurements too.

    He must have been living in England for a long time, it happens to me when I go to other cities for a weekend where my accent differs from the locals, that's not the important thing, the important thing is the Pizza and that looks awesome and delicious.

    I have just made pizza following his recipe. With an electric oven. I imagined it wouldn't be the same as with a wood-fired oven, so I preheated mine for about an hour (290-300 Celsius) and put in it the dough with no toppings on it first for some 10 minutes. I thinned it really down, the way I prefer it. Then I took it off, spread the passata and added parmesan cheese plus the toppings I love - mozzarella cheese and parma ham. It ended up better than some of the 90% pizzas I've ever eaten and very near the other 10%. Crunchy, even a little burnt.
    I think I won't be ordering pizza anymore.

    I know flour 00 is best for Pizza but that is because of the high temp brick oven as well? what if we use the regular gas range? or home oven? Is there any adjustments to the type of flour and ingredients?

    Hello from Brazil!
    The dough on my pizza is hard to stretch in the end. She is very elastic. When I try to pull it back to the place and ends that it gets with an irregular thickness in different places. What could it be? Is there a shortage of water? Besides, I'm satisfied with the result, but I think it could be better if I find the right spot and get it equally baked.
