Did you know that the pizza probably descended from a focaccia ? The idea is that these focaccia in the course of time is covered (then with cheese , herbs and vegetables ) and with the addition of the tomato which became the standard topping, the pizza originated.
So far history lesson for today. This is one of our favorite pizza. With real cheese of course, which I saw on television isn’t that natural anymore when buying your pizza in the supermarket. We make everything (bottom, sauce) ourselves and, apart from the fact that it takes some waiting time, you don’t have got a lot of work with this recpe. I make the dough in the bread machine , but you can, of course, just as well knead the dough by hand. The tomato sauce just needs some time to simmer and the nice topping is made up by you.
Now I live in a house full of foodies and this pizza topping is a favorite with Dad and we call it the Pizza Italian the luxe. This pizza combines the salty ham, the nutty flavor of the pine nuts, the peppery arugula with the full sweetness of the tomatoes. And all on a crispy base. Of course I’ll give you the recipe below .
