No-Knead Basic Pizza Dough / Tijesto za pizzu koje se ne mijesi

With the ongoing no-knead bread obsession I’ve been experiencing, it was only a matter of time before I tried the no-knead method for pizza dough. The results are spectacular. I’ve had so much pizza over the last few days that I’ve started eating salads with pizza, just to try to balance things up a little bit. I know that I have a problem, but I just can’t stop eating those pizzas!

So you have been warned. Read on if you’re in a pizza mood and also, click here if you are interested in some tips for making a delicious and juicy pizza every time. I don’t have any fancy pizza baking gadgets at home, just a regular oven and cheapo lightweight pie tins, which I find perfect for pizza baking purposes.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields dough for 2 medium pizzas / 0.18 EUR per pizza / 0.35 EUR for all)

For the dough:

2 cups all-purpose flour (0.13 EUR)

¼ tsp active dry yeast (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 tbsp sugar (0.01 EUR)

2 tbsp olive oil (0.09 EUR)

1 cup water (–)

Additional:

Olive oil for greasing tins and dough (0.07 EUR)

Flour for sprinkling (0.01 EUR)

METHOD:

In a bowl whisk together flour, yeast, salt and sugar. Pour olive oil and water over, then stir to combine. The dough will be almost liquid and super soft. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 12 hours.

When ready to bake, allow the dough to come to room temperature for about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 250°C. Grease two medium sized lightweight pie tins with olive oil and set aside. Dump the dough on clean, well-floured counter and fold it over a few times with a bench scraper. Divide the dough into two, drizzle with more olive oil and, using your hands, spread to fit into the trays. Assemble pizza to your liking, but for now don’t add the cheese. Trust me on this.

At this point you can also freeze pizzas for later, and that’s what I usually do with one. Just throw the pizza with all the toppings (except for cheese) in the freezer for a few hours. Once frozen solid, wrap in cling foil and return to freezer. No need to thaw the pizza before baking. Just add two or three minutes to the total baking time.

Bake pizza for 10-15 minutes, until slightly poofy and the toppings start to lightly brown. The exact baking time will depend on your oven, the dough thickness and the amount of toppings. Just keep a close eye on your pizza after 10 minute mark. Mine is usually perfect after 13 minutes. Now add the cheese to your pizza, quickly return to the oven and finish baking for only additional 2 or 3 minutes, just so the cheese can thoroughly melt. If going vegan or skipping cheese altogether, just omit this step as pizza is done with first baking. Voila!

S obzirom na moju trenutnu opsjednutost sa kruhovima koji se ne mijese, bilo je samo pitanje vremena kada ću isprobati takvu metodu i za tijesto za pizzu. Rezultati su spektakularni. Pojela sam toliko pizze u zadnje vrijeme da sam počela jesti salatu uz pizzu, samo da malo probam izbalansirati stvari. Znam da imam problem, ali jednostavno ne mogu prestati!

Tako da ste upozoreni. Nastavite čitati ako ste raspoloženi za pizzu, a također, kliknite ovdje ako vas zanimaju savjeti kako da svaki puta kod kuće napravite ukusnu i sočnu pizzu. Ja doma nemam nikakvih fensi pomagala, samo običnu pećnicu i jeftine lagane kalupe za pite koji su ispali savršeni baš za pečenje pizze.

SASTOJCI:

(Za tijesto za 2 srednje velike pizze / 1,29 kn po pizzi / 2,57 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

2 šalice glatkog brašna (1,00 kn)

¼ žličice suhog kvasca (0,25 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žlica šećera (0,05 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

1 šalica vode (–)

Dodatno:

Maslinovo ulje za namastiti protvane i tijesto (0,50 kn)

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U zdjeli pomiješajte brašno, kvasac, sol i šećer. Prelijte preko toga maslinovo ulje i vodu, pa promiješajte da se sjedini. Tijesto će biti jako mekano i skoro pa tekuće. Pokrijte zdjelu sa prijanjajućom folijom i stavite u hladnjak na barem 12 sati.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje, izvadite tijesto iz hladnjaka jedno pola sata ranije da dođe na sobnu temperaturu. Zagrijte pećnicu na 250°C. Namastite dva srednja lagana protvana za pečenje i stavite na stranu. Iskrenite tijesto na čistu, dobro pobrašnjenju radnu plohu, pa ga par puta preklopite sa strugalicom za tijesto. Podijelite tijesto na dva dijela, pokapajte maslinovim uljem i rukama raširite u pripremljene protvane. Složite pizzu prema ukusu, ali za sada još nemojte dodavati sir. Vjerujte mi.

U ovom trenutku pizzu također možete i smrznuti za kasnije, a ja to obično i napravim sa jednom. Samo ju ubacite sa svim nadjevima (osim sira) u frizer na par sati. Kada se pizza smrzne, zamotajte ju u prijanjajuću foliju i vratite u frizer. Pizzu ne morate odmrzavati prije pečenja, samo pecite dodatne 2 ili 3 minute.

Pecite 10-15 minuta, dok tijesto ne postane lagano pufasto, a nadjevi ne počnu hrskati. Točno vrijeme pečenja ovisiti će o vašoj pećnici, debljini tijesta i količini nadjeva. Samo držite pizzu na oku nakon 10 minuta. Moja je obično baš kako treba nakon 13 minuta. Sada na pizzu dodajte sir, brzo ju vratite u pećnicu i dopecite još 2 ili 3 minute, samo da se sir skroz rastopi. Ako radite vegansku pizzu ili ste pak izbacili sir, samo preskočite ovaj korak jer je pizza gotova sa prvim pečenjem. Ta-da!
