As I lately have a little time, I had been browsing on the internet last week. Attempting to find fresh, interesting thoughts, inspirational dishes that We have never tried before, to delight my family with. Hunting for quite some time unfortunately couldn’t come across any interesting stuff. Just before I thought to give up on it, I discovered this fabulous and easy treat by chance. It seemed so delicious on its image, it required instant action.

It was not difficult to imagine how it is created, its taste and how much boyfriend is going to like it. Actually, it is quite easy to impress him when it comes to puddings. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or maybe he is.Anyways, I visited the webpage: Suncakemom and simply followed the simple instuctions which were combined with wonderful shots of the operation. It just makes life faster and easier. I could suppose it’s a bit of a inconvenience to take photos down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you may usually have gross hands thus i sincerely appreciate the time and energy she put in for making this blogpost .

With that said I’m empowered presenting my very own dishes in a similar way. Many thanks the concept.

I was fine tuning the main formula to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I can say that it was a terrific success. They enjoyed the taste, the thickness and enjoyed getting a delicacy like this in the middle of a stressful workweek. They quite simply asked for more, many more. So next time I am not going to commit the same mistake. I am likely to multiply the amount to make them pleased.

Skillet Pizza is from suncakemom.

Starter

Making a starter is not absolutely necessary but it will provide a more complex flavor for the dough. Combine flour, water and the yeast in an airtight container and put it into the fridge for 4 – 6 hours. It will double in size so choose a big enough box.

Dough

Measure flour into a kneading bowl and sprinkle fresh yeast on top. No need to dissolve the yeast.

Pour in the olive oil and at least half of the water.

Add the starter in too. It tends to stick to the box but mixing it with some flour from the bowl will help salvage every bit without much effort. If starter is not used, just add the equivalent amount of flour and water to the bowl.

Knead the dough until it comes together, gradually adding the remaining water and the salt. We are after a sticky humid dough as we are going to bake the pizza in a low temperature home oven. Flouring our hand will prevent the dough to stick to it.

Take the dough out onto a floured surface.

Separate into two and shape the dough into elongated forms for easier measuring.

Cut the dough up into 6 equal parts, that should make over 4oz / 120g balls which will be enough to cover a Ø8″ / Ø20.5cm skillet nicely.

Make balls from the dough, cover them with a wet kitchen cloth and keep them until double in a 68°F – 81°F / 20°C – 27°C place for 45 – 90 minutes. It’s an optional step but it helps a lot when stretching the pizza by hand.

Sauce

Pour oil into a pan and caramelize the onions then add the crushed garlic and fry it until it gets fragrant. (Check out the Low Carb Condiments for detailed Tomato Sauce recipe)

Pour the pureed tomato and add basil, oregano and salt then cook it on low heat until about quarter of the liquid evaporates. Add salt to taste.

Topping

Grate the cheese and cut the necessary ingredients up.

Assembly

Stretch the dough to the size of the skillet. If we let the dough raise, it should be elastic enough to be able to do the stretching by hand otherwise use a rolling pin. Oiled or floured hands will keep the dough from sticking to our hands. Check out How to shape a pizza like a pro!

Place the dough into the skillet or just leave it where it was stretched.

Cover the dough and place the skillet with the dough to a 68°F – 81°F / 20°C – 27° place to raise for about 30 minutes. When the growth starts to be visible we can proceed to the next step.

Spread 1-3 spoon of sauce all over the dough.

Add favorite toppings and cheese. Set the oven’s broiler to its maximum then start making our skillet pizza on the cooktop on medium to high heat.

After about 30 – 60 seconds we may check the bottom of the pizza. If golden brown spots are already there, the crust is done.

With the oven’s broiler already on, put the skillet onto the top shelf for 3 – 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and golden brown spots are visible all around the pizza.
