|Bread is ready - just add guests|
The problem is that it is too tasty and is eaten so quickly that you need to make a large quantity so that you don't run out too soon into the party.
I made the dough the day before and just did the final preparations the morning before guests arrived.
Also, feel free to change the toppings as you like - green peppers, meat, etc. are all great ingredients to try too.
The recipe below makes 3 pieces (160 grams each). You can increase the recipe to adjust to your guests as needed.
260 grams bread flour
5 grams salt
4 grams instant dry yeast
80 grams room temperature water
50 grams olive oil
80 grams milk (room temperature)
1. Sift the flour into a bowl. Add the salt, yeast, and water and start to mix. Add in the olive oil & milk and finish mixing. Use a bench scraper to mix everything together.
2. Put the dough onto a flat board and knead for about 10 minutes. Roll into a nice firm ball and place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap.

4. After rising, cut the bread into 160 gram pieces. Roll into small balls and place under plastic wrap for 20 minutes for a short rise (bench time).
5. You can prepare the topping while waiting for the process above, i.e. slice the tomatoes, red peppers, etc.
6. Flatten each piece by using a rolling pin to make a nice shape.
7. I made a spread of chopped onions, capers & anchovy
sauce which is spread on the bottom before adding other ingredients.
8. Bake at 200 degrees Celsius for about 30 minutes or until browned & crispy.
