Not so ordinary lunch

{ pizza romana - thirty minute pizza dough for dummies }

Homemade pizza from scratch is such a satisfying thing to make... Come on, who doesn't love pizza? I wouldn't mind eating every other day! This dough recipe is not perfect, but the upside is that it gets ready in thirty minutes. That way you can have your homemade pizza out of a whim!

Archicad morning... Started wondering what would lunch be... Wandering through blogs, I found a delicious picture of pizza. That was enough for me to try making my own pizza crust for the first time. I had the ham, cheese, mushrooms and greens... And I found a very easy and quick recipe that looked fine as inspiration, so I put my hands to work...

Misturar todos os ingredientes para a massa com as pontas dos dedos até obter uma massa macia. Colocar numa taça limpa e cobrir com um pano. Deixar levedar cerca de 30 minutos.
Pré-aquecer o forno a 250ºC. Forrar um tabuleiro de forno com papel vegetal e untar este com azeite.
Estender a massa com um rolo da massa sobre uma superfície polvilhada com farinha e colocar sobre o tabuleiro. Levar ao forno cerca de 5 minutos e retirar do forno.
Espalhar polpa de tomate sobre a base. Cobrir com o queijo e finalizar com o fiambre, cogumelos e canónigos. Temperar com pimenta, azeite e com o pesto.
Levar ao forno até o queijo derreter e a pizza estar dourada.

and the 30-minute dough for dummies.

1 cup self-raising flour
1/3 to 1/2 cup lukewarm water
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp olive oil
pinch of salt and pepper

tomato paste
mozzarella cheese

herbs of provence pesto

Blend all dough ingredients together using the fingertips until reaching a smooth dough. Place in a clean bowl, cover with a clean cloth and let rise for at least 30 minutes.
Pre-heat oven at 250ºC. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and grease it with olive oil.
Roll the dough with a rolling pin over a flour-dusted surface and place it on the baking tray. Bake for about 5 minutes and remove from oven.
Spread tomato paste all over the crust. Spread the cheese over and then top with ham, mushrooms, and corn salad leaves. Season with pepper, olive oil and finish with the pesto.
Bake until the cheese is melted and the pizza is slightly golden.
