Salsiamo has neither lactose, is  gluten-free and does not contain any  preservatives. It only contains the freshness of top quality selected peppers.

Let’s first prepare the dough!

For 5 people:

300 g “00” flour or Kamut, spelt or whole-wheat flour.

200 g “0” flour

300 g water

12 g fresh brewer’s yeast

1 tsp fine salt

½ tsp sugar

10 g extra virgin olive oil

Pizza dough:

For 5 people:

  • In a bowl, mix the water with the sugar and the brewer’s yeast, until the yeast is fully melted.
  • Add 10 g of extra virgin olive oil and 1 tsp of fine salt.
  • Add the flour and start to knead. If you use Kamut flour, whole-wheat or spelt flour, knead as quickly as possible.
  • Knead the mixture for 10 minutes, until it has become a soft dough ball.
  • Cover the bowl with a clean odourless cloth. Let the mixture rest inside an oven (turned off), with the light on at 28-30 degrees. The dough will rise in approx. 2 hours.
  • Sprinkle a clean work surface lightly with “0” flour
  • Place dough on top and roll out using a rolling pin (the flour will stop the dough sticking).
  • Fold the dough in three, turn it and repeat the operation twice. This will make the dough more elastic.
  • Divide the dough into 5 parts and prepare 5 round pizzas. Each piece must weigh 180-200 g, depending on how thick you want your pizza to be.
  • Once the dough has been rolled out you can put the toppings on and bake it.
