The Cime Di Rapa Wild

The Cime Di Rapa Wild

The Cime Di Rapa Wild. The top wild turnip is a plant that grows wild throughout Italy. It is usually called (It depends on the area) under different names: Brassica Rapa, Rape wild, kohlrabi, or as in our "Rapacciuolo" area. The stem of the plant is tough, then unwrapped, but the top reminiscent of a broccoli is yummy. It has a sweet taste and less bitter classic turnip greens, but it is cooked in the same way: Boil then redone in the pan. Try it with orecchiette, or as I do in lieu of broccoli on pizza, an absolute delight.

The Cime Di Rapa Wild

The often found on roadsides where they grow wild. It is rich in minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, C vitamin, B2, In addition to a high content of antioxidants. It contains many proteins and is fine when used in place of meat.

The cows are particularly greedy of this plant.

Dough gluten-free pizza: 4 ground rules

Dough gluten-free pizza: 4 ground rules

Dough pizza without gluten: 4 ground rules. If you are gluten intolerant, but you want to eat a good pizza it is enough to pay attention to a few simple rules.

Buy the right flour. As you know there are many on the market that do not contain gluten flour:

Buckwheat, soy, Rice, chestnuts, to name a few, and each flour is suitable for a different type of processing.

Try to prepare a very hydrated dough, saw that the gluten-free flours tend to dry.

Dough gluten-free pizza: 4 ground rules

long leavening: The flour does not contain gluten does not rise as the classic one, then maybe leave overnight in a warm and humid environment.

I recommend the salt. As you know the salt inhibits the action of yeast, then the mixture should be added only at the end, pretty much when it's ready.

The pizza baking with or without gluten should be made at a high temperature, so not in our little home oven.

If you observe that the dough is not elastic, so difficult to work, try adding a boiled potato that is rich in starch, or corn starch, even if in this way you will get results, I suggest to test "of xantara" rubber that you can buy on amazon.

If even this solution you will get good results, I suggest you enroll and attend one of our Practical courses to become a pizza maker in our school of Italian pizza.

The pizza that will prepare today in the laboratories of our school is really delicious. It is a cake prepared with a mixture of potatoes. The dressing of this cake is really simple, tomato, some green olive slices, classic cherry tomatoes, an extra virgin olive oil, salt and plenty of oregano.

It requires less heat in cooking than normal pizzas, for those with a wood stove: it is recommended to cook well away from the flame. Near the mouth of the oven. Those who work with an electric suggest instead of lowering the temperature up to 200 gradi celsius.
