Perhaps I'm just naturally a skeptic but when I read the title "One Hour Pizza" I immediately begin to question whether or not it's even possible to make really great homemade pizza in an hour. It's just too good to be true. I'm pretty sure that I can't even call and order a pizza and have it delivered to my house in under an hour.
I was so intrigued by the idea of making pizza in an hour that when I saw this recipe in my cooking magazine - I had to try it immediately. I suspected that this was either going to be my new favorite go-to meal OR, it was going to go horribly wrong. I was prepared to spend at least three times that amount of time since that's about what it normally takes for me to make homemade pizza.
I'm happy to report that the scrumptious looking mushroom and olive pizza that's pictured on this post was prepared in ONE HOUR!!! It's true. I anticipated that I would have to have all of my ingredients prepped and measured and sitting on the counter in order for me to hit the one hour mark. I even made the homemade pizza sauce for this amazing pie.
In the end, I followed the recipe as written, from start to finish and I even stopped along the way to snap pictures for the blog and much to my astonishment, I was pulling the first pizza out of the oven at exactly the one hour mark. And it was SUPER tasty. Looks like I have a new go-to pizza recipe.
One Hour Pizza
1 1/3 cups bread flour 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup semolina flour 1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons instant yeast 1 teaspoon anchovy paste
2 teaspoons sugar 1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons warm water 1 teaspoon oregano
1/4 cup mild lager 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons white vinegar 1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 1/8 teaspoon red pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Bake in 500 degree oven 8-12 minutes.
How do you top your pizza? For me its olives, mushrooms, tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella for a perfect pie. I only had olives and mushrooms on hand for this creation but I have to say - it was one incredible pizza.
This recipe is such a game changer for me. Now that I've added homemade pizza to our quick and easy dinner meal rotation - I'm thinking we're going to be eating a whole lot more of it.
