Fresh mozzarella pizza

cooked in the frying pan

- Ingredients -
(Serves 4)


  • > 500 g strong flour 
  • > 15 g fresh yeast 
  • > 250 ml tepid water 
  • > 1 tbsp. sugar 
  • > 4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil 
  • > Salt

  • > Hacendado fresh mozzarella 
  • > Cherry tomatoes 
  • > Tomato purée 
  • > Dried oregano 
  • > Olive oil

- Directions -

  1. Dissolve the yeast and the tablespoon of sugar in the tepid water. 
  2. Meanwhile, sieve the flour into a bowl and mix with the salt. 
  3. Make a well in the centre and pour in the oil and the mixture of yeast, water and sugar. With a wooden spoon, mix until it starts to form a dough. Finish using your hands with the fingers open. You don’t have to knead it too much, just enough to achieve a loose dough. 
  4. Sprinkle some flour on the work surface, take out the dough and create a ball. 
  5. Place it in a clean bowl with a little sprinkled flour, cover with a cloth and leave to prove in a warm place for an hour, until it doubles in size. 
  6. Squash it with your fingers to remove the air and split the dough into four balls. 
  7. Roll out each ball until thin. Any that are unused can be wrapped, once rolled out, in baking paper with a little flour and then frozen.
  8. Using a frying pan that can be placed in the oven, add a dash of oil, heat and add one of the bases. Cook over a medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes, until the base starts to swell in little lumps. 
  9. Spread a little tomato purée with oregano on the pizza base, arrange the fresh mozzarella on top, tearing it with your hands (never cut it with a knife or you will break its strings), along with the halved cherry tomatoes and a little olive oil. 
  10. Cook in the oven (preheated to 220ºC) for 10 to 15 minutes. 
  11. Remove without forgetting that the handle of the frying pan will be very hot; use a cloth to hold it. 
  12. Place on a serving plate and sprinkle some more oregano.

- Advice -

Making a pizza in both the frying pan and the oven gives a result similar to a professional pizza oven. The pizza will be crunchy, thin and very tasty.
