Is a pizza a pizza if it doesn’t have tomato or cheese? Perhaps it’s a focaccia (or as they are called in Tuscany, schiacciata)? This was supposed to be a Fitascetta, but it’s not as I couldn’t find red onions in the groovy local shop that I have fallen in love with since lockdown.
Arghh…you know what (she says quietly considering she lives in Tuscany), I don’t really care what it is. Or if it breaks the ‘rules’. What I know that it tastes d.i.v.i.n.e. 🙂
Sourdough spelt dough, mixed by my 6-year old, topped with lard-fried onions, olives, olive oil, garlic and oregano from the garden. Every ingredients is organic. It took 5 minutes in our oven – that’s the quickest I’ve ever got a pizza done. It makes such a difference to the base and dough.
We’ve got a huge wooden table in our kitchen. There’s extra space. I wish you could come and share…
The best pizza dough maker in the house. Seriously, the dough he makes is far better than mine. I think it’s because he takes a loooong time over it so it gets super-worked.
Looking forward to eating this tomorrow – it will go in the fridge tonight to long ferment. I think I’m going to make a Fitascetta, which is a dough (in this case wholegrain sourdough spelt) topped with an enormous quantity of fried red onions.
It’s getting better! #sourdoughspeltwholegrainpizza We took the solid bottom shelf off our oven and replaced it with a grilled shelf. I maxed the oven and put the pizza stone in to heat for an hour. My hubby lifted the entire shelf out and I held my breath as I lifted the dough onto the stone and then topped it. Then we cooked it for 8 minutes. Delicious! .
Am I the only one in the world to use that hashtag? Might have to go and have a look 🙂
I’ve been making 100% wholegrain spelt sourdough pizzas for about a year now. I feel like I’ve got the dough and the fermentation sorted, but the transfer to the oven and cooking to perfection is still a work in progress (it hasn’t helped that, in that time, I’ve moved my family from the UK to Italy and we’ve passed through many kitchens!). My 5-year old loves eating the results, whatever. That makes me a happy Mumma.
