How to Make Perfect Pizza | Gennaro Contaldo

Hi lovely people of Food Tube. I am in Gozo,
beautiful Gozo. It’s an island next to Malta. Yes! I’m gonna celebrate this beautiful island,
I’m gonna make my own homemade pizza – classic margherita. So simple, so easy. The world love
Pizza. Why you should go buy? Make your own. It’s cheap and easy and it is delicious!
Let me show you how. A bowl, 500g of strong flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, sachet of 7g of
dried yeast, then you have here 325ml of warm water.
Straight in. Mix it Now can you see the salt on here? I’m gonna mix it, the salt with the
flour. The yeast goes inside then you mix it.
What is it about making pizza? It’s fantastico! Turn it down, move the spoon, then start to
mix it. Fantastico!
This stage I need a little bit of flour, just a little bit. Put it on top. This is the way
you clean your hands. I love making pizza! You gather all together and that.
With the palm of your hand in one side, you’re holding for the other one, you pull it and
you fold it, you pull it and you fold it and you carry on doing that, ok?
Then you get the other side, pull it and you fold it.
Now the dough is ready! Get the flour, just roll it a little bit. Get a knife, you do
one, two, three and four. It’s about, 150g. Roll it, roll it. Now you’ve got four beautiful
portions of dough. Now I’m gonna proof the dough. First, we need a little bit of semolina.
If you don’t have semolina use breadcrumbs, it works fantastic. This is what I used to
do. I’m gonna proof it. What is proofing? Yeast is alive. Soon as it touch water, start
to move it. Soon as it touch the flour, starts to feed. They create air. Oxygen goes bubbling
like oooooh. And it goes boobooboobooboo, double the size. Because they are happy! But
then, (sigh) they rested. They become very elastic, you can stretch them nice, I don’t
mind. Put a little flour on top, put a damp cloth
on and let it proof for at least two hours. Here they are! (sings) Bam bam bam bam!
Flour. Look at that! They double the size. Press it and turn them
around again, pick him up. Look at that! Ok. Now there is a little hole here. Don’t
try to stick it, try to take it from the sides of the pizza, put them on the middle. Then
with your finger, just press it. This is really fantastic. Stop!
We get nice tomato, or Passata will do. Or this particular one I’ve flavoured with
the garlic, it’s easy. Stop from the middle, you do not need too
much tomato. Drizzle with some little olive oil. It help to flavour the pizza.
Little bit of salt. When you reach the stage to make the classic margherita, you need parmesan
cheese. This will be so delicious. Nice mozzarella. For each pizza you need about 50g of mozzarella.
Just break with your hands, it’s so good. Basil, break it. Yes, with a nice drizzle
of olive oil again. Pallet, here you are. Little semolina on the pallet. Don’t be afraid, readjust
it. Now a miracle will happen. Yes! This is very rustic! Oh yes! This is what
I call a pizza. Look at that! The perfect pizza! The tomato, the basil on top, the cheese,
the Gozo olive oil. Gozo I love you. You can put salami, you can put preserved vegetable,
make your own, it’s ever so easy. If you want to see me make all more, fantastic dish don’t
