I had been craving for a homemade warm and crispy rye pizza for some time and finally Friday was the favourable night for this. We prepared two different kinds: one a bit more adventurous with chicken, curry, banana (works very well) and mushrooms and the second one with beef, mushrooms, sweet pepper and cherry tomatoes. And tasty cheese on top of course, goes without saying.
Ingredients (for one pizza)
1 bag of dry yeast
2 1/2 dl lukewarm water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 dl rye flour
2 dl wheat flour
Mix the flour, salt and and dry yeast. Add water and olive oil. Knead the dough well and then place a cloth on top of the dough bowl and let the dough rise and become double its size (takes around forty minutes).
For the tomato sauce you’ll need:
2 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tin of smashed tomatoes
3 tablespoons tomato pyre
salt and black pepper
Sweat the onion and garlic in olive oil, the add the rest. Let the sauce boil for about ten minutes. Taste and add spices, if needed.
Prepare the pizzas and bake them in 225 degrees Celcius for 25 minutes.
Before serving cover the pizza with a lot of fresh rucola. I was moderate with it for the picture but added a green handful afterwards. And then pour the wine into the glass and enjoy! These pizzas work really well as a lunch treat served cold the following day.
