Where the pizza was invented Pizza as we know it today was probably invented in Naples. That was over a hundred years ago. Since then, the recipe has been improved and always passed down.
Today there are around 3000 pizza makers in Naples. Making an authentic Neapolitan pizza follows strict rules. It not only determines the size and thickness, but also specifies the ingredients and the type of preparation. For example, the pizza must be baked in a wood-fired oven.
The city claims to have created the only true version – “la vera pizza napoletana” – of this delicacy in the 18th century. More than 30 billion pizzas are eaten every year. In December 2017, Unesco placed the pizza on the list of intangible cultural heritage in urgent need of protection.
Homemade Italian pizza You don’t have to be a pro to bake a pizza. Here is a recipe for five pizza margherita:
Ingredients: 0.5 liters of water, 25 grams of salt, 1 half teaspoon of dry yeast, 900 grams of flour type 405, mozzarella (pulled into pieces), grated parmesan, basil leaves, oil.
First, mix the water with the salt in a bowl. Then add some flour along with the yeast and mix with a food processor on the lowest setting until everything is dissolved. Gradually stir in the flour until it is completely mixed with the water. Knead on the lowest setting for about 20 minutes.
Knead the dough ball on a floured board with both hands for 15 minutes. When the dough feels fluffy and no longer sticky, it is done. Then cover with a cloth and place in a warm place for at least 2 hours, but better for 1-2 days.
Now cut the dough into 5 pieces and shape them into balls. Use your fingers to form a ball into a round patty, working from the inside out.
Cover the pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella, Parmesan, basil and pour some oil over it. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven on the highest setting and the lowest shelf for about 5-7 minutes. Buon appetito, that is: Bon appetit!
