Pizza Triangles / Pizza trokutići

I might have overdone it with the cheese a bit in here. Not that there is such a thing as too much cheese. Please. It’s like saying you’ve got too much free time.

So these might not look too presentable, but man, they are so damn delicious. And don’t be intimidated by dough making. It’s a breeze, I promise.

Small tip: these would be even better if you’d sprinkle the triangles with coarse salt. I was out so I used fine salt instead of running to the store, but some extra salty crunch would have been nice.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 30 triangles / 0.12 EUR per triangle / 3.63 EUR for all)

1 cup warm milk (0.20 EUR)

1 tsp dry active yeast (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp sugar (0.01 EUR)

3 – 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour, divided (0.23 EUR)

¼ cup vegetable oil + more for the mixing bowl (0.07 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

¾ cup tomato paste (0.27 EUR)

1 tbsp dried oregano (0.07 EUR)

½ cup ham, cut into thin leaves (1.33 EUR)

½ cup shredded cheese (1.00 EUR)

1 egg yolk (0.20 EUR)

1 tbsp sesame seeds (0.03 EUR)

1 tbsp cumin seeds (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp coarse salt (0.01 EUR)

METHOD:

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together warm milk with active yeast, sugar and 1 teaspoon of flour. Be careful that the milk is only warm and not too hot, as too much heat will kill the yeast. Leave it for 10 minutes until slightly frothy. If the yeast doesn’t start getting frothy, discard everything and start again with the fresh batch, as your dough won’t rise.

To the frothy yeast mixture add 3 cups of flour, oil and a good pinch of salt. Mix everything together until a shabby dough forms, turn over on a clean counter and start kneading, incorporating more flour if necessary, until the dough is soft but not sticky. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes and form into a ball.

Clean up your mixing bowl, add a bit of oil to it and turn the dough ball around to cover in oil on all sides. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest in a warm and draft-free place for up to an hour, to double in size.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 200°C. Line two baking trays with parchment paper and set aside. Gently deflate the dough on a clean counter and flatten. Roll out the dough on a well-floured surface into a large sheet.

Cut the sheet in half using a dough scraper. Brush each half with tomato paste, sprinkle oregano and divide ham and cheese between the halves. Now roll each half into a long sausage. Mix the egg yolk with a tablespoon of cold water and then brush over the top of each sausage. Then sprinkle sesame, cumin and coarse salt over brushed areas.

Again use the dough scraper to cut each sausage zig-zag, so you end up with triangles. Spread the triangles on prepared baking sheets, making sure to leave enough space between them, and bake for 20-25 minute, until puffy and golden. Just be sure to switch the baking sheets halfway through baking, so all of the triangles bake evenly.

Možda sam mrvicu pretjerala sa sirom. Nije da zapravo postoji tako nešto kao previše sira. Baš. To je kao da kažete da imate previše slobodnog vremena.

Ovi trokutići možda i nisu ogledni primjerci, ali su zato jako, jako fini. I nemojte se bojati pravljenja tijesta. To je čas posla, stvarno.

Mali savjet: trokutići bi bili još bolji da su posipani sa krupnom solju. Ja sam imala samo sitne soli kod kuće, pa sam zato upotrijebila nju jer mi se nije dalo trčati do dućana. Ali malo slane hrskavoće bi bilo baš super.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 30 trokutića / 0,90 kn po trokutiću / 27,03 kn za sve)

1 šalica toplog mlijeka (1,50 kn)

1 žličica suhog kvasca (1,00 kn)

1 žličica šećera (0,01 kn)

3 – 3 ½ šalice pšeničnog brašna, podijeljene (1,75 kn)

¼ šalice suncokretovog ulja + mrvica za namastiti zdjelu (0,50 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

¾ šalice pasirane rajčice (2,00 kn)

1 žlica sušenog origana (0,50 kn)

½ šalice šunke, narezane na tanke listiće (10,00 kn)

½ šalice ribanog sira (7,50 kn)

1 žutanjak (1,50 kn)

1 žlica sjemenki sezama (0,25 kn)

1 žlica sjemenki kima (0,50 kn)

1 žličica krupne morske soli (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U velikoj zdjeli pomiješajte toplo mlijeko sa kvascem, šećerom i žličicom brašna. Pazite da mlijeko nije prevruće jer ćete tako ubiti kvasac. Ostavite 10 minuta dok se mješavina ne počne blago pjeniti. Ako se kvasac ne počne pjeniti, bacite i počnite iz početka jer vam se tijesto neće dignuti.

Pjenastoj mješavini sa kvascem dodajte 3 šalice brašna, ulje i dobar prstohvat soli. Sve dobro promiješajte, a kad se krene formirati tijesto, istresite na čistu radnu plohu i mijesite oko 5 minuta, po potrebi dodajući još brašna. Tijesto treba biti mekano, ali ne smije biti ljepljivo. Formirajte tijesto u loptu.

Očistite posudu u kojoj ste miješali tijesto, dodajte mrvicu ulja u nju, pa ubacite loptu tijesta i okrećite da se namasti sa svih strana. Pokrijte posudu čistom krpom i ostavite tijesto da se diže na toplom mjestu bez propuha, do sat vremena da se volumen udvostruči.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Obložite dva pleha za pečenje masnim papriom i stavite na stranu. Nježno ispuhnite tijesto. Čistu radnu plohu posipajte brašnom i razvaljajte tijesto u veliku plahtu.

Prerežite plahtu tijesta na pola. Obje polovice premažite pasiranom rajčicom, posipajte origanom i podijelite po polovicama šunku i sir. Sada svaku polovicu zarolajte u dugačku kobasicu. Pomiješajte žutanjak sa žlicom hladne vode i time premažite obje kobasice tijesta. Po premazanoj površini posipajte sezam, kim i krupnu sol.

Svaku kobasicu režite cik-cak, tako da dobijete trokutiće. Raširite trokutiće po pripremljenim plehovima, pazeći da ostavite dovoljno mjesta između njih. Pecite oko 20-25 minuta dok ne budu pufasti i zlatno-smeđi, s time da na pola pečenja zamijenite protvane kako bi se sve ravnomjerno ispeklo.
