How to make a simple pizza on kefir in the oven? Prepare the necessary ingredients for the dough. Pour kefir in advance so that it warms to room temperature.
Combine kefir with soda, mix, leave for 5 minutes. There will be a reaction of extinguishing soda with lactic acid. Bubbles will appear on the surface and kefir will rise noticeably, so choose a container with a larger volume.
Beat the egg with salt until smooth.
Pour kefir with slaked soda, mix.
Add vegetable oil. It will give the dough elasticity.
Sift flour into the resulting mass, mix. Do not pour out all the flour at once. She may need less than me. But perhaps more. When kneading the dough, be guided by its consistency.
The dough is soft and tender. Do not add a lot of flour, the dough should not be too steep. Wrap the finished dough in a bag and leave it on the table for 15-20 minutes. The gluten in the flour will develop and the dough will become more pliable.
While the dough is resting, prepare the tomato sauce for the pizza. You can take any ketchup or ready-made sauce. Seasonings and spices choose to taste.
Cut the pre-peeled garlic into thin slices.
Lightly heat the olive oil in a skillet. Put the garlic in the pan, sweat it in oil over moderate heat for 1 minute. The oil will become fragrant and acquire a spicy taste. Remove the garlic.
Add tomato paste to the pan, stir. Warm up 1 minute.
Add water to the tomato paste, mix well. Bring the sauce to a boil.
Add aromatic herbs, sugar to balance the taste, salt. Stir. Simmer the sauce over low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. The sauce will thicken a little.
Cover the pan with a lid and remove from the stove. Let the sauce sit for 5 minutes to intensify the flavor. This amount of sauce is enough to lubricate the base of a pizza with a diameter of 22-23 cm.
For the filling, you can use any products that are available.
I have ham. Cut the ham into thin slices. Any boiled or smoked sausages are also suitable.
Tomatoes can be taken ordinary. One medium tomato or 3-4 cherry tomatoes will be enough. Wash tomatoes, dry. Choose the cut of your choice.
Wash bell pepper, dry, free from seeds and stalk. Cut the pepper into rings or strips.
Olives can be substituted for olives. They can be cut into rings, cut in half or left whole.
Any cheese is suitable – hard, semi-hard, soft, such as mozzarella. The main thing is that it should be tasty, of high quality, without substitutes for milk fat and melt well. Grate the cheese on a coarse grater.
Roll out the dough on parchment into a round layer. Form small borders. My pizza diameter before baking is 23 cm.
Brush base with tomato sauce.
Sprinkle with a little cheese.
Lay out the ham slices.
Divide the tomato slices.
Lay out the bell pepper rings.
Spread the olives evenly.
Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
Bake the pizza in a preheated oven at 190 C for about 20 minutes. The time and mode of preparation depend on the characteristics of the particular oven, so they may differ. Focus on your technique.
Cut the finished pizza into pieces and serve warm. Enjoy your meal!
