Pork Pizza with Broccoli Rabé & Bell Peppers

I really wanted pizza last night but was not able to get any so I decided to give yeast another try. I just found out that warm-hot water is the key. I used to always use room temperature water… I put my favorite ingredients on this irregularly shaped pizza and it is so good!


[100% organic]

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 225 mL warm-hot water (a little less than 1 cup)
  • One 9-gram packet of active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • Deli slices of prosciutto
  • Deli slices of pancetta
  • Deli slices of black forest ham
  • Chopped broccoli rabé
  • Handful of baby spinach leaves
  • Slices of bell peppers, green and red
  • Quarter of onion, sliced
  • Mozzarella cheese, finely grated
  • Tomato sauce

Mix flour with the yeast, sugar, and salt then make a well in the center and add water mixed with olive oil. Knead dough until elastic and smooth, approximately 10 minutes. Cover and put it in a warm place and let it rise, approximately 2 hours.

Optional: put in refrigerator overnight.

Preheat oven to 450ºF. Knead dough for 5 minutes before you cut it. Cut the dough and roll it however thick you want. Roll the dough flat and place on a pizza oven dish. Layer the pizza: tomato sauce, onion, leafy vegetables, meats, bell peppers, then top with cheese. Bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on ingredients.


The cost to make this pizza: $31.47 I made 6 pizzas so that’s $5.25 for one!
