This version is very easy to make and can be served with anything you like!
- 400g All purpose flour
- 10g Instant yeast
- 1 Teaspoon of sugar
- 1 Tablespoon of salt
- 4 Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 200ml Warm water
- 120ml of Milk
For the toppings:
- 20 Cherry tomatoes
- 10 Black olives
- Rock salt
- 1 Glass of water
- 3 Tablespoons of olive oil
#1: In a medium bowl, mix the flour, yeast, salt and sugar. Mix well.
#2: Add 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and mix all together.
#3: Add the milk and water, then knead the dough by hand or with your mixer, until the dough is extremely elastic and very sticky.
#4: Now let the dough rise. Put the dough in a bowl greased with oil and cover well with a cloth, then set aside to rise for about 2-3 hours.
#5: Flatten the dough on an oiled baking tray. Use your hands to flatten the dough.
#6: Let the dough rest in a hot spot until the dough is swollen and full of bubbles and almost doubled in height. This takes about about 45 minutes.
#7: Season the dough generously with a mixture of water and oil. With your hands, press your fingertips firmly into the dough, pushing all the way down to the bottom of the pan to create dimples.
#8: Add the toppings: rosemary, olives, cherry tomatoes and coarse salt.
#9: Cook in a static oven preheated to 190 degrees for 25 minutes.
