Preparation Of Pizza Crostini

Preparation Of Pizza Crostini

Preparation Of Pizza Crostini. They are my favorite dinner saver. Very tasty and succulent they are very simple to prepare and are suitable to be served as well as to replace dinner also as an appetizer or to accompany a delicious aperitif.

They are also commonly called empty fridge and it is easy to understand why. For those like me who have little time to get in front of the stove, these crostini pizza type are easy to prepare and above all in a short time by reusing the ingredients that are stationed in the refrigerator.

Preparation Of Pizza Crostini

They will be ready in the oven in a couple of minutes, so I advise you to prepare a ready-made tomato sauce, extra virgin olive oil. A clove of garlic and a finely chopped onion.

These pizza croutons are great if prepared with stale bread. Cut it with a saw knife into slices with a thickness of 1,5 centimeters, not thin otherwise you risk burning it in the oven during cooking.

How to prepare them

With a spoon add the previously prepared tomato sauce, mozzarella and ingredients to taste.

Two minutes in the oven previously heated to temperature and your dish is ready to enjoy. Serve hot, if they cool down, the bread hardens. Like pizza, croutons are perfect accompanied by a good glass of red wine.

Tips

If you like these delicacies I suggest you read my latest recipe book which includes croutons and bruschetta. My latest recipe book is called: NOT ONLY PIZZA - What should have all the pizzerias in your menu. The bruschetta and crostini chapter is full of ideas and delicacies.

This morning I made some phone calls between the guys who took the course and to my great satisfaction I couldn't find one who was unemployed. This is reality, the figure of the pizza chef is an increasingly sought-after job. I suggest you sign up for one of our professional practical courses that we organize in our pizza school.

Pizza With Grilled Vegetables and Bacon

Pizza With Grilled Vegetables and Bacon

Pizza With Grilled Vegetables and Bacon. Today's super pizza is the classic and best-selling pizza with vegetables grilling. As you say? It's not true? If you are among those who say otherwise, I guess why no one orders this pizza from you anymore.

In pizzerias, classic frozen grilled vegetables are often used. They are very comfortable, just open the freezer, take a sliced ​​courgette, a sliced ​​eggplant and a layer of pepper, all frozen and slap them on a pizza, maybe even with the tomato base, which with its acidity completely covers the flavor of the vegetables (frozen).

But ... do you really think some customers might like this mess you made up? Of course not. Making a pizzeria is a sacrifice, go to the market, buy seasonal vegetables and grill them and flavor them yourself. Only in this way will you win back your customers.

Maybe add some diced bacon as I did in the video below, without exaggerating, you will see that the taste of this almost vegetarian pizza will return to being one of the most requested pizzas in your pizzeria.

The Pizza Prosciuttella

The Pizza Prosciuttella

The Pizza Prosciuttella. I remember in my childhood when my mother sent me to the local supermarket by bicycle to buy some cold cuts for a snack, there was a wide selection to choose from, I liked a particular salami: The Prosciuttella. More and more difficult today to find in large supermarkets, the Prosciuttella seems to be slowly disappearing, fewer and fewer specialized companies produce it, for those unfamiliar with it it is a typical salami with a shape that resembles a little mortadella but flat, contains a mix of cooked ham and mortadella.

This week in our pizza school Mr. Nuno came to visit us from the beautiful city of Porto in Portugal. Nuno had never tasted Prosciuttella, being a typical Italian salami. Here is that during the preparation of our morning breakfast I decided to prepare the Prosciuttella pizza.

The Pizza Prosciuttella

I invite all gourmands to prepare this pizza next weekend, when you prepare the usual pizza at home. Take care to buy a good cooked ham and a good quality mortadella, are the basic requirements for the success of this pizza.

Another tip I can give you, is not to use mozzarella for the topping of this delicious pizza, but add cooked ham and mortadella only after cooking, perhaps baking a simple marinara with garlic, then add everything.

The Buonissima Prosciuttella

The preparation video will certainly help you.

Focaccia with Tomato and Poppy Seeds. Today in our school of Pizzaioli we prepare a special pizza: It is an OPPIO pizza. The common poppy it is widespread in Italy, it grows spontaneously on the roadsides, along the railways and among the wheat fields. It is a close relative of the opium poppy from which morphine is extracted and the petals and seeds have mild sedative properties.

It is widely used in pastry, in baking and generally in the kitchen, and it is permitted by law as once poppy seeds lose their hallucinogenic properties.
