PIZZA WITH FRESH TOMATOES AND BASIL



Pizza with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil image

Provided by Giada De Laurentiis

Categories     main-dish

Time 30m

Yield 4 to 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 14

1 tablespoon yellow cornmeal
Two 8-ounce pieces of homemade or purchased Pizza Dough, recipe follows
6 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/3 cups, grated pasteurized mozzarella
2 Roma tomatoes, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1 large garlic clove, minced, optional
6 fresh basil leaves, plus extra for garnish
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup warm water (105 to 110 degrees F)
2 teaspoons dry yeast
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons olive oil

Steps:

  • Position 1 oven rack in the center and the second rack on the bottom of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees F. Sprinkle the cornmeal over 2 rimless baking sheets. Roll out each piece of Pizza Dough into a 10 to 11-inch-diameter round. Transfer 1 dough to each prepared baking sheet.
  • Drizzle 2 teaspoons of oil over each Pizza Dough. Sprinkle the mozzarella over the Pizza Dough, dividing equaling and leaving a 1-inch border around each pizza. Arrange the tomato slices in a single layer over the cheese. Sprinkle with the Parmesan. Arrange basil leaves on top, drizzle with a little more olive oil and sprinkle garlic all over. Bake the pizzas until the crusts are crisp and brown on the bottom and the cheese is melted on top, about 15 minutes. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of oil over each pizza. Sprinkle with basil for garnish and salt. Cut the pizza into wedges and serve immediately.
  • Mix the warm water and yeast in a small bowl to blend. Let stand until the yeast dissolves, about 5 minutes. Mix the flour and salt in a food processor to blend. Blend in the oil. With the machine running, add the yeast mixture and blend just until the dough forms. Turn the dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 1 minute. Transfer the dough to a large oiled bowl and turn the dough to coat with the oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm draft-free area until the dough doubles in volume, about 1 hour. Punch the down dough and divide into 2 equal balls. (The dough can be used immediately or stored airtight in the refrigerator for 1 day.)

Categories     Cheese

Time 1h

Yield 1 pizza, 4-6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 7

1 (4 ounce) portion pizza dough
1/2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 large plum tomato, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon sliced fresh basil
4 slices fresh mozzarella cheese (thin slices)
1 slice country ham (optional) or 1 slice smoked ham, cut into thin strips (optional)
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 450°F Shape pizza dough ball into 6-8 inch circle on a lightly floured surface.( Circle doesn't have to be perfect) Place dough on a piece of prachment paper. Fold up edges of dough, forming a 1 inch border. Brush oil evenly over dough with a pastry brush, or drizzle evenly over dough.
  • Cover pizza dough circle loosely with plastic wrap, and let rise in warm place, free from drafts, 15 to 20 minutes. Heat pizza stone or heavy baking sheet 10 to 12 minutes in oven. ( I think the pizza stone is much better than the pan).
  • Remove and discard plastic wrap from dough. Layer tomato, and next 3 ingredients evenly. Sprinkle with pepper. Carefully transfer dough on parchment paper to pizza stone.
  • Bake at 450F for 10 minutes or until crust is golden.

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Gently roll out the pizza doughs on a floured surface to create roughly 12-inch round pizzas. Carefully transfer them to greased baking sheets.
  • Evenly split the pizza sauce between the two pizza doughs. Spread it around the top of the pizzas, leaving about an inch exposed on all sides. Next, evenly layer the mozzarella and pepperoni slices between both pizzas. I like to go back and forth from mozzarella to pepperoni to create a fanned effect.
  • Bake the pizzas for 15-20 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted. If you like a more crispy top to your pizzas, you can turn your broiler on high and broil them for 3-5 minutes.

  • Baked Stuffed Shells (Conchiglie Ripiene al Forno) Individual servings of stuffed shells make an impressive presentation. If you have enough individual baking dishes, divide the shells and sauce among them, then top with plenty of mozzarella, keeping in mind that you might need a little more cheese to top individual servings than is called for in the recipe.

30 FRESH MOZZARELLA RECIPES - INSANELY GOOD

From insanelygoodrecipes.com
  • Barilla Lasagna Recipe. Lasagna is such a comfort food, and I make it quite often during the colder months. There’s just something about that layered mix of pasta, meat, and stringy mozzarella cheese that I can’t ever resist.
  • Cheesy Garlic Bread. Isn’t garlic bread just the best side dish around? I’ve never put it out and had leftovers, and it’s always the first thing I order when we eat out.
  • Baked Tomatoes with Mozzarella & Parmesan (Cheesy Oven Roasted Tomatoes) These are so good; you can easily serve them as the main course! It’s easier to use tomato slices for this.
  • Tomato Mozzarella Salad with Balsamic Reduction. There’s nothing better than a platter full of juicy tomato slices, fresh chunks of mozzarella, and plenty of zesty balsamic.
  • Pasta with Tomatoes and Mozzarella. If you have ever had pasta in Italy, you’ll know that they don’t over-saturate it with sauce. Instead, they like to use fresh ingredients and let the pasta shine.
  • Cherry Tomato Mozzarella Saute. This fantastic little dish would work as a simple starter or as a side to some juicy roasted chicken. As much as I love a Caprese salad, when it’s cold out, I like to reach for something warm.
  • 30-Minute Mozzarella Chicken. Not only does mozzarella melt beautifully, but it looks terrific when it bubbles and turns golden. In this dish, you’ll heat crushed tomatoes with softened onions and garlic, along with Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, basil, and pesto, for a quick but powerful tomato sauce.
  • Low-Carb Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Bake. This egg bake (or crustless quiche) is a filling and tasty start to the day. You’ll need quite a lot of spinach, which needs to be softened before mixing in.
  • Pizza Quesadilla. Quesadillas are the ultimate lazy snack. Just throw some cheese in a tortilla and maybe some leftover chicken, and it’s ready to go.
  • Zucchini Pizza Casserole. Speaking of cutting carbs: you have to try this gluten-free, veggie-loaded pizza casserole. The crust is a mix of shredded (well-drained) zucchini, eggs, mozzarella, cheddar, and parmesan cheese.

PREVENT PIZZA WITH FRESH MOZZARELLA FROM BEING WATERY
2020-09-16  · Fresh mozzarella only takes a few minutes to melt, and once it melts if it continues to sit on the pizza as it bakes, the cheese will start releasing moisture. A solution to this problem is to bake the dough, sauce, and toppings first and put the fresh mozzarella on the pizza during the last few minutes of cooking time.
