Basic recipe for Pizza Margherita – like in Naples/Italy

Rezept in Deutsch – bitte hier dem Link folgen –

So dear ones, here I am again! It was a bit quiet here, but I hope to get my blogging back in track soon!

To debut, so to speak, I bring today my absolute recipe for pizza!

What the hell has pizza with a healthy diet to do, you ask yourself? Well all of it!! Why not, I say!

The ingredients are all pure, you don’t have no sugar added in the dough, only a little yeast, little oil. Oh yes – I forgot, there are the bad carbs in there !!

Well, I love the carbs so much, hey, I’m Italian, how could I delete my beloved carbohydrates from my diet!

Every Friday night we have pizza, and this one here, homemade! Meanwhile, the pizza baker is my husband, who has discovered his passion and has really perfectioned this pizza Naples Style!

The special thing about this dough is the long rest period. Yes, a good pizza dough like the one made in Naples, just needs time …. nothing else!

Oh ever in this fast-paced time, it’s of course a problem for many of you, but in fact it isn’t so complicated. Thursday evening prepare the dough, put in the refrigerator, Friday morning take out the bowl and leave until evening …… Hmm … does not sound really complicated right?

In the evening just divide the dough into two parts, roll out, top up and put in the oven for that!

And enjoy!!

Here is the recipe!
