This is one of my more recent creations. I've cooked it a few times before, but have recently perfected the recipe.
Pizza balls are an easy to eat portable food that can be eaten as a snack or as part of a meal. They can be eaten hot or cold and are ideal for things like picnics.
Step 1: The 'base': Ingredients
650g of plain or strong white flour
1 sachet (7g) of yeast
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of sugar
25ml of oil
350ml of warm water
Step 2: Making the 'base'
Add the oil and 100ml of the water. Mix it all together. Slowly add more water to the mix, until it is combined thoroughly. The mix shouldn't be so dry that it doesn't stick together but it shouldn't be so wet that it can be poured easily. If the mix is too wet, add flour and stir until it become the right consistency.
Leave the mix in a warm place to rise for 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
Step 3: The Sauce: Ingredients
Tomatoes. Tinned or hand chopped
Mixed Italian herbs
1/4 of an onion
2 cloves of garlic
A pinch of salt
The sauce can be modified and changed to suit particular tastes. This is suited to my tastes.
Step 4: The Sauce: Tomatoes
Step 5: The Sauce: Combining
You can add other things such as pepperoni or finely chopped pepper to add an extra taste.
Step 6: The Base: Knocking Back
Step 7: Creating the Ball
To give them an extra golden brown colour once cooked, paint them with milk before cooking.
Step 8: Cooking
