The dough for this pizza is amazing - my pizza goes out always bit crunchy on the bottom and soft on top. If you never prepared your own pizza base - give a try with this one. I promise - you won't regret. Also prepared base can be freeze and kept in the fridge for month until needed.
And just 2 days ago I found out that this pizza was invented in Canada by Greek! Amazing isn't it?
250 ml milk
2.5 cup (625 ml) strong bread flour (type 550)
5 g active dry yeast
1 tbsp sugar
0.5 tsp salt
5 tbsp olive oil + extra for greasing
4 tbsp very good tomato sauce (with at least 48% of tomato paste would be the best)
120 g grated yellow cheese (like Gouda)
8 tbsp canned pineapple pieces
4 big slices of pork ham
Mediterranean spice mix (basil, oregano, thyme, marjoram, pepper, savory, garlic)
Heat milk in a pot, but don't boil. Add it in stirring bowl.
Add to the same bowl flour, yeast, sugar, salt and 5 spoons of olive oil. With mixer prepare little bit sticky dough. Lightly coat it with oil. Cover bowl with cling film and put aside in a warm place for one hour.
Heat oven up to 220 C/440 F.
Split prepared dough in to two parts. Dust table lightly with flour and roll one piece of pizza. Transfer pizza base to the baking pan with baking paper.
With spoon add 2 table spoons of tomato sauce and cover pizza. Add grated cheese, then top with pineapple pieces and slices of ham. Sprinkle with spices.
Bake in the middle rack for 10-12 minutes until golden and cheese is melted.
