How to make pepperoni and funghi pizza

Difficulty: Easy
  • Total time 20 m
  • Elaboration 10 m
  • Cooking 10 m
  • Repose 30 m

To make the homemade pizza dough, we mix 200 g of wheat flour, 3 g of fresh baker's yeast, 3 g of salt, 20 ml of extra virgin olive oil and 125 ml of water and knead them for about five minutes until ready. form a ball. Then, we put the dough in a bowl, cover it with kitchen film and let it rest for 30 minutes in which it will increase in size. While we prepare the oven preheating it to 225º. Here you can see the whole process in detail. If you prefer, you can also use prepared pizza dough that you will find in your supermarket fresh in the refrigerated area or also frozen although the results are obviously not the same.

Once the pizza dough is ready, we stretch it with a rolling pin on the floured worktop and put it on the baking tray with a parchment paper or on a pizza pan, a very practical pot if you like to make homemade pizzas.

Spread the tomato on the pizza with the back of a spoon and distribute the cheese, pinching the mozzarella until the pizza is well covered. Then we arrange the pepperoni pieces and prepare the mushrooms, giving them a little sauté in the pan so that they do not make the pizza too moist.

Add a thread of olive oil and sprinkle with a little oregano. We bake at 225º in the oven with heat up and down, placing the pizza in the central area of ​​the oven. We will know that the pizza is ready when the edges - which we have folded a little on themselves - are well browned as you see in the images.
