Thermomix Tomato and Mozzarella Pizza

Tomato and Mozzarella Pizza

This is a very straightforward pizza, a standard pizza dough topped with organic tinned chopped tomatoes and grated mozzarella.

The original recipe says to knead for 2 minutes but that's not long enough, knead for 4 minutes and you'll end up with a fabulous dough.

Ingredients:

Dough
  • 30 g extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for greasing
  • 220 g water, room temperature
  • 1 tsp sugar 
  • 2 tsp dried instant yeast 
  • 400 g bread flour
  • 1 tsp salt
Topping
  • 200 g bag grated mozzarella
  • 250 g chopped tomatoes, canned
  • 2 – 3 pinches salt, to taste
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Method

Place water, sugar and yeast into mixing bowl and mix 20 sec/speed 2.

Add bread flour, extra virgin olive oil and salt 4 min/knead. Leave the dough in the jug and let dough rise until doubled in size (approx. 1 hour).

Preheat oven to 230°C. Line a baking tray (approx. 40 x 35 cm) with baking paper.

Place dough on prepared baking tray and shape into a rectangle the size of the baking tray by pressing it with your finger tips and stretching it gently. Form a small ridge around the edges.

Spread chopped tomatoes and grated mozzarella on top of dough and sprinkle with salt and olive oil. Bake pizza for 20 minutes.
