Preparing Dough

Preparing Dough

Then put the yeast-water mixture along with 300 grams flour, 25 milliliters olive oil & ½ teaspoon of salt to a mixing bowl and knead with your hands or a food processor for about 4 – 5 minutes until a smooth dough. Halve the dough once, then form into small balls and let the dough balls rest on a floured work surface covered with a kitchen towel for about 30 minutes.




…for the minced beef filling:

Peel a red onion and cut into thin strips. Also peel off 1 – 2 clove(s) garlic and finely chop. Pour off corn and black beans over a pasta strainer and rinse thoroughly, then allow to drain. Afterwards heat up a large pan adding a dash of oil and sweat onions and garlic for 1-2 minutes over medium heat until glassy, stirring occasionally.

Sprinkle the pizza with some grated cheese & then bake for about 15 minutes in the preheated oven until the cheese has melted and the pizza is nice and crispy. Cut the finished pizza into pieces with a knife and serve garnished with finely chopped cilantro. I wish you lots of fun cooking 😉
