- For the Dough
- 450 g / 15,87 oz / 3 ½ cups Whole wheat flour
- 8 g / 0,28 oz / 1 ¾ tsp dry yeast
- 250 ml / 1 ½ cup water
- 30 ml / 2 tbsp olive oil
- 5 g / 1 tsp of salt
- Pizza sauce amount required
- For the filling
- 500 g / 17,63 oz / 2 ½ cup Ricotta
- 1 red bell pepper
- 200 g / 7 oz / 1 cup broccoli
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 50 g / 1,76 oz / 3 ½ tbsps grated cheese
- Salt and pepper
- Optional: oregano, parsley, sesame seeds, etc.
- Place the flour, yeast, oil, yeast, salt, and water in a bowl. Form a uniform dough. Cover the dough and let rise until it doubled in volume.
- Cut broccoli into small twigs, steam them (keeps nutrients better) or in a pot with plenty of boiling water for about 5 minutes. Reserve.
- In a pan, place the diced onion and rel bell pepper. Sauté for a few minutes, add garlic, broccoli cut into small twigs. Cocinar por unos minutos.
- Add the ricotta and cook for about 3-5 minutes. Remove, place the cheese and season to taste. At this time, I advise you to season with salt if necessary (if the cheese is very salty, you will not need to add it). Reserve.
- In a pizza oven dish, place a little oil and stretch the dough with your fingers rounding the dough to cover the entire pizza oven dish. Paint the dough with pizza sauce. If you like fluffy pizza, let stand for 15-20 more minutes before precooking it.
- Cook in a strong oven (662 °F) for 5 minutes. Reinforce with pizza sauce if desired and cover all the pizza with the filling. Place cheese cubes between the filling and cook for 10 more minutes or until the cheese melts. Do not bake the pizza too much since the dough will be very crispy.
