“I love pizza. My sisters always joke about the fact that I crave pizza the day after eating pizza. I even have a pizza sweatshirt (which I wear when I eat pizza!). I love all kinds of pizza; grilled, baked, baked in a fire oven, made in a pan, warm, cold, thick or thin. I love it. I also love the whole process of making pizza. Mom taught me how to make it by myself a few years ago, and I’ve been making it ever since. Hope you enjoy baking it and eating it as much as I do! Espero que lo disfrutes”

  • Step 4/13

    after twenty minutes of blooming, it should look something like this. Add the olive oil and salt (quick note: do NOT pour the salt into the yeast. It will kill it. Form a little border with the flour and pour it there.) Stir, then knead.

    roll as thin as you want. I like my pizza to be super thin and crispy, but whatever suits your taste is right.

    once the crust is golden brown, take it out of the oven and, working quickly, add your favorite cheese (it has to be a kind of cheese that works good for melting, such as mozzarella.) and pepperoni. Season with oregano or pizza seasoning. Place in the oven and bake for about ten more minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
