Pizza & my Express Pizza Sauce

When I was growing up in Austria, coming back from school on Saturday lunchtime we always had homemade pizza. I remember coming into the kitchen with my sisters, washing our hands and all of us together making 3 trays of pizza, everyone choosing what they wanted on their part.

It was always such a joy that I started doing the same with my boys years ago.

I will share with you the recipe of the pizza dough I use but also of the Express Sugo I have come up with when I was a teenager and which is perfect to enhance these delicious Italian flavours found on the pizza!

For a fresh touch I serve it with a delicious salad.

Recipe Pizza Dough (makes 2 round 23 cm pizzas)

  • • 150 ml tepid water
  • • 1 tsp sugar
    • 2 tsp fast action dried yeast
    • 225 g plain flour
    • 1 1/2 tsp salt
    • extra virgin oil

Very easy to make! Mix all and rest for about 30 minutes.

Recipe Express Pizza Sugo

  • 1 can of tomatoes
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of oregano
  • herb salt
  • fresh black pepper

Again very simple. Just mix together in a blender, smell and use.

This Sugo makes all the difference!

If you simply put a can of chopped tomatoes on the pizza without seasoning it will be bland.

Preheat the oven to 180C C.

In the meantime spread the dough on a piece of baking parchment (please use the non-stick side or the structured baking parchment). Add the sugo and place the garnishes you chose on your pizza.

Slide the pizza into the oven using the baking parchment. Check occasionally until you feel that the base of the pizza is ready.

Buon appetito!

  1. Bonjour, je pense que vous avez confondu levure chimique et levure du boulanger, non, dans la recette en français ?

  2. Bonjour
    Dans la recette en français, pour la pâte à pizza, que signifient “tsp” et “cat” ? Merci
