Amazing things the French do with pizza

We could have guessed it. The pizza beats the burger in the race for the throne of the most consumed food in France. Many pizzas are currently sold in Pizzerias in Paris. If we take into account the fact that several American restaurants in Paris are pizzerias, we obtain a large quantity of boxes of pizzas sold by pizzerias per day.

Whatever the time of year or the time of day: a pizza is always tempting, and if we learn how to prepare them well at home, we will have an infinite number of ingredients with which to prepare them.

Making homemade pizza dough is very simple. And very cheap. All we need is flour, water, baker’s yeast and olive oil. And, while there are plenty of recipes out there, this one requires no more than three hours to ferment, making pizza a much less complicated dish to make than it looks.

How to make homemade pizza dough

Pour hot water into a glass. Dissolve yeast in water. Put the flour and salt in a bowl and, little by little, pour in the water with the yeast. It’s easier if you knead little by little, pouring in the water, until you get a homogeneous dough. Then place the dough on the work surface, cover your hands with flour so that it does not stick and start kneading. If the dough is sticky, add more flour. The dough should be dry enough not to stick to the table or your hands, but not too dry or it might break in the oven. Once the dough is homogeneous, elastic, but not sticky, add the oil and knead again until it is completely incorporated. Make a ball and make two incisions so that it can rise well. Put it back in the bowl, cover it with a damp cloth and let it come to room temperature.

– Pork pizza with mushrooms and arugula

This lacón pizza with mushrooms and arugula is a good way to get used to accompanying the pizzas with a good amount of green leaves, which we place on top when serving and bring to the table. The filling, when using lacón instead of ham, has that special touch that we love so much.

– Mexican meat pizza

The second amazing thing the French do at the Pizza we offer is a Mexican meat pizza, made with a tomato and cheese base topped with minced meat, onions and slices of avocado. You decide the right spicy kick by adding more or less Tabasco or jalapeño peppers.

– Pizza with pears, ham and gorgonzola

This pizza with pear, ham and gorgonzola is one of my favorite pizzas because the sweetness of the pear goes so well with the saltiness of the ham, in contrast to the particular flavor of the gorgonzola.

– Chicken, brie and blueberry pizza

The Chicken, Brie and Cranberry Pizza is the queen of contrasts, as the tart flavor of the cranberry and the creamy texture of the Brie pair beautifully with the chicken, forming a very balanced mix.

– Tuna and anchovy pizza

Fish pizzas like the one with tuna and anchovies have something special. Its intense marine flavor is softened by basil and mozzarella for an unforgettable pizza. You have to try it in our American restaurants in Paris.

– Colored pizza

We discovered this Pizza de colores in a phone application and we are happy with this discovery because, being very simple, it is one of the most popular pizzas at home every time we prepare it.

– Individual pizzettes with salmon and arugula

At, we have a lot of mini pizzas or individual pizzettes and we usually prepare them with pie wafer bases, so they are quick and easy to prepare at any time. These individual salmon and arugula pizzas feature a combination of ingredients that we and our consumers love, and are also the ones we make the most at home.

– Mini pizzas with raw ham and fig jam

We continue with other individual pizzas, like these mini pizzas with Serrano ham and fig jam which are a must. Ham goes so well with fig jam. What a great combination of flavors. Try them and see for yourself.

– Mini pizzas with tuna, cooked ham and mushrooms

Another small version, these mini pizzas with tuna, cooked ham and mushrooms. A special combination of ingredients that is splendid when mixed in the mouth. Prepare more than the calculated amount because they disappear very quickly.

– Mini Caprese pizzas

We continue with the individual pizzas. Caprese Mini Pizzas contain only these three ingredients, mozzarella, tomato and basil. We don’t need anything else to have fun, do you?
