The ingredients

The ingredients

Preparing the dough.

Find a bowl and put in the flour, a bit of salt, a minor amount of olive oil, about 3/4 of a tea spoon of honey and sprinkle the yeast around evenly.
Slowly pour in water while mixing the dough with your other hand. Continue kneading the dough for a minute or so, until it’s seemingly uniform and doesn’t stick much to your hands. If it sticks too much, just add a bit more flour until you feel it’s just right.

Then cover the bowl with something like a plate for the yeast to do its thing. Leave it at a room temperature for 1 to 4 hours.

When you feel the dough has risen enough, oil up the pizza pan with some margarine and spread the dough. Let the dough rise for a while in the pan (~30+ mins) if you want a soft puffy pizza crust.

Top of the pizza.

When you’re ready set your oven to ~200-225 degrees and start adding the toppings. First spread the tomato sauce which you mix with a hand held mixer beforehand.
Distribute the spices evenly and chop up your ham to smaller pieces and top them up.

Phase 1

Phase 1

Phase 1:
At this stage you can put the pizza in the oven if you’re going for a 2 phase system which assumes you’ll be adding the cheese a bit later.

Phase 2:
Grate the cheese and after 5-10 minutes pull the pizza out of the oven and spread the cheese evenly. Also add the olives and capers at this point and put the pizza back in the oven to finish. This 2 phase system ensures your cheese and capers are still moist at the end.

Ready the Trieste sauce:
Chop up or mince a garlic strobe and about an equal amount of parsley leaves and put them in a cup. Add a little bit of olive oil and mix it all up.

After about 10 more minutes, depending on how well done you like your pizza, remove it from the oven and spread the Trieste sauce evenly over the toppings.

The salad dressing.

Find a bowl or a cup and mix in the yoghurt, salt and all the other spices you desire. Mix it up good and pour it over the veggies you sliced up and prepared on a plate.

All done!
