My Thermomix means I can make bread doughs without all the effort of kneading by hand. After my lung surgery I found I had less upper body strength. Until I bought the Thermomix I avoided making pizza dough unless Michael was around to knead for me.
Here's how easy it is to make Pizza Dough with a Thermomix.
280 grams water
1 sachet dry yeast
20 grams olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
500 grams bakers flour.
Place water, yeast,oil and salt into bowl and mix for 5 seconds on Speed 3.
Add the flour. Continue mixing for 6 seconds on Speed 8 to combine.
Set dial to closed lid posistion. Knead the dough for 2 minutes on Interval Speed.
Transfer dough to an oiled bowl and let rise until double the quantity.
Form you pizzas and add toppings.
Bake in a hot oven (200C - 220C) until cooked. Cooking time will depend on the toppings.
The dough will make two family size pizzas. We enjoyed a white pizza one day and the remaining dough was stored in the fridge overnight and a I made a regular tomato/cheese pizza the second day.
Roll out dough to cover pizza tray.
Brush with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with a quality salt.
Place a few slivers of brie cheese on base.
Top with finely sliced potato. Don't overlap potato pieces.
Drizzle a little olive oil over and bake 10 minutes at 220C.
Roll out dough and cover pizza tray.
Brush with a favourite tomato puree.
Add mozzerella cheese.
Add a few peices of salami and stoned black olives.
Drizzle with olive oil.
Bake 15 minutes at 220C.
