Pizza-bread with cheese

in IDEAS/Salty

Here we are!

This is our first topic in English and we hope it will sound good to you all!

Therefore, why not try “pizza-bread” with cheese?

If you want to do so, you’ll need:

  • mix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a bowl
  • pour in the water and extra virgin olive oil
  • gently kneading as you go until the dough is smooth
  • cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until doubled in size (1 hour should be enough)

  • gently kneading once more until the air get out
  • mould into a round shaped lightly greased baking tray
  • cover the dough again with the towel and leave to rise until doubled in size
  • pre-heat the oven to 170 °C (fan) and once this temperature has been reached, place the tray onto the lower oven shelf and bake for 20-25 minutes until it’s just golden and you can lift the pizza-bread loaf from the tray
  • sprinkle with your favourite cheese (e.g. mature cheddar) and leave it to melt in the oven for a further 5 minutes
  • cool on a wire rack and tuck in!

Why not with use “pizza-bread” to make a panini?

Slice your “pizza-bread”, distribute a little amount of extra virgin olive oil over the flat surface, add your favourite filling and sauce. Close your panini and cook in a “panini press” for about 3-5 minutes until golden and crisp.

We personally love sliced-grilled zucchini, caramelised red onions, mozzarella cheese, Dijon mustard and sliced mortadella (Bologna sausage) or sliced smoked chicken breast.

Are you ready? Take a bite!

To be fair, in Italy “panini” is the plural form of “panino”. So, we can eat a panino and if we are hungry we can eat even more panini.

Tips: you can also sprinkle over the “pizza-bread” a blended herbs seasoning to give you a tasty snack full of flavour.
