Pizza with Tomato Mozzarella Bacon and Grilled Vegetables

Pizza with Tomato Mozzarella Bacon and Grilled Vegetables

Pizza with Tomato Mozzarella Bacon and Grilled Vegetables. Today in the laboratories of our "School of Pizzaioli" we have prepared a very special one.

Just like all. Grilled vegetables attract many customers, but they don't have a strong taste, marked. As an old friend of mine used to say, they are not suitable for the taste of smokers.

The pizza with bacon and grilled vegetables never disappoints

How to solve the problem? Simple, adding a special ingredient that gives our pizza that extra touch. I'm talking about the bacon.

Bacon, if cut into thin slices, in the few minutes that it is placed in the oven it can cook to perfection becoming a crispy and delicious crispy.

Pizza with Tomato Mozzarella Bacon and Grilled Vegetables

Preparation is very quick and easy. After having spread the disk of dough, spread a veil of tomato, I recommend not to overdo it, add the mozzarella, the grilled vegetables and finally add the bacon previously cut into thin slices.

Bake in your hot oven until it is perfectly golden. Remove from the oven and serve hot to your guests.

Recommendations for presenting a good pizza

Before serving the pizza to your customers' table, I have to make a clarification. The pizza should never be cut into wedges before presenting it to the customer.

I often see pizzas arriving at the customer's table completely destroyed. The pizza should absolutely not be cut into wedges and then served. Have you ever seen a plate of shredded spaghetti served at the table? Be serious and professional.

Conclusions on pizza

You will find all these tips and tricks in our "Pizzaiolo Manual". In our manual you will also find all the tips together with suggestions for making a fantastic pizza. From the dough to the leavening. All information at this link.

Pizza with Tomato Bacon Mozzarella Stracciatella and Black Olives

Pizza with Tomato Bacon Mozzarella Stracciatella and Black Olives

Today together with our friend Cesar who comes from Switzerland and has signed up for our practical course to become a pizza maker, we will prepare a special pizza, we will use an unusual but at the same time delicious ingredient.

I'm talking about the buffalo stracciatella mozzarella. It is a cheese prepared with buffalo milk, made with cream and pieces of stretched curd, prepared to be understood as the burrata.

Pizza with Tomato Bacon Mozzarella Stracciatella and Black Olives

Stracciatella does not need to be melted on pizza in the oven, therefore it must be added at the end of cooking. It is very easy to spread as it is quite liquid, just a spoon and that's it.

Even if in Italy the cream on the pizza is little used, try to go on vacation to Portugal, you will find that you will find many pizzas with the addition of cream on the menu of pizzerias or restaurants.

The Preparation

After rolling out the dough, add the tomato, the pancetta cut into very thin slices and put in the oven.

As soon as you reach the perfect browning, take it out of the oven, add the buffalo mozzarella stracciatella, black olives and a few basil leaves in the center and serve hot to your lucky customers.

Below is the video of Cesar while he prepares this tasty pizza.

How to Plant Rosemary. Reproducing rosemary at home is really easy, even for those without a green thumb, fortunately the aromatic plants are very robust.

Let's see what is the procedure to follow in our home

There is no greater satisfaction than that of using your own fresh rosemary, planted by us. The first thing you will notice will be to hear the difference between the dry rosemary you usually find on the market and a sprig of fresh rosemary.

Rosemary is one of the most used aromatic plants in our kitchen and pizzeria. There is no focaccia without the addition of fresh rosemary.

How to Plant Rosemary

Let's not forget to mention that rosemary increases concentration and improves memory, improves our mood and fights various inflammations.

Reproducing this plant indoors is really simple, a glass of water and a few twigs of rosemary of about fifteen centimeters are enough.

Place the sprigs of rosemary in a glass of water at room temperature and wait about ten days. Place the glass with the twigs in front of a bright window.

Yeast table

Conversion table Fresh Brewer's Yeast to Dry Brewer's Yeast to Mother Yeast

Conversion table Fresh Brewer's Yeast to Dry Brewer's Yeast to Mother Yeast. Thanks to our easy and convenient table you will no longer have problems converting the various types of yeast from dry to fresh or replacing it with the classic mother yeast.

Yeast is widely used in cooking recipes and especially daily in pizzerias. It is a living organism consisting of cells and thanks to it a known process called fermentation.

Fermentation or Leavening

The leavening process leads to the production of carbon dioxide in the dough, it is for this reason that we see it increase in volume.

We can generally divide yeast into two types: the natural one and the chemical one. Natural yeast is a living element used for the production of bread, wine, beer, pizza, the second, that is, the chemical one is pure bicarbonate of soda, potassium hydrogen tartrate together with corn starch and does not allow leavening or fermentation if you prefer.

Other yeasts

Other types of yeast used in cooking are ammonia, cream of tartar or the more common sodium bicarbonate, these types of yeast have the same characteristic, they do not need rising times, they produce carbon dioxide and only increase in volume during cooking in the oven.

As we can see there are many types of yeast, but the most used is certainly brewer's yeast or if you prefer natural yeast, comes from living organisms. It can be found on the market in dehydrated or fresh sachets.

How to use it

The dehydrated yeast must be revived by mixing it with warm water and a little sugar in a glass, you will notice that a foam appears after a few minutes. Fresh yeast is generally found in cubes from 25 grams and should be dissolved in the water of our dough, the doses may vary depending on the amount of flour used and the time we have available.

Another type of yeast widely used in cooking is dough or mother yeast. Certainly the best in terms of aroma, flavor and digestibility. Made up of yeasts and lactic bacteria that increase the acidity of our product and its shelf life. Sourdough requires longer processing times, perfect for preparations such as pizza and sweet or savory. This type of yeast also exists on the market in the dried version. This dried sourdough must be found in warm water, just like dehydrated brewer's yeast.

Here is the very useful conversion table for the various types of yeast

It often happens while we prepare our recipes at home that we have to adapt another type of yeast to our recipe. Here is our fantastic yeast conversion table.
