Pizza Virginia

Pizza Virginia

The pizza is an Italian famous and easy-to-make food. It's very tasty, consistent and I think that it doesn't deserve to be considered among fast food products.

Pizza Virginia contains mozzarella, mushrooms, broccoli and olives.
I made the dough first:

For 2 pizzas I used: 
- 300 g white regular flour 
- 50 ml of olive oil 
- an egg 
- 1/2 teaspoon of sugar 
- 1/2 teaspoon salt 
-  approx. 1 cup of lukewarm water.

In the beginning mix the yeast with a little lukewarm water, sugar and a tbsp of flour in a cup. Leave it aside for about 5 minutes. When the yeast begins to make bubbles, add it to the other ingredients and mix them until you got the dough. Leave it aside for about half an hour, and then divide it into two parts. I formed 2 round pizza crusts and I put them into 2 pans (22 cm diameter) well oiled.

For the topping I used: 
- 100g mozzarella, 
- a few bunches of broccoli, 
- a red pepper, 
- 2-3 tablespoons of canned mushrooms, 
- a handful of sliced ​​olives 
- salt, pepper, oregano 

I spread grated mozzarella all over the pan, then the thin sliced ​​mushrooms, the broccoli, strips of bell pepper and finally the olive slices. In the end I put some salt and oregano then I introduced the pans in the preheated oven (170 C / 350 F) for about 20-25 minutes.
When ready, I served with ketchup and garlic sauce.
If you have ready-made pizza dough, you have your pizza much faster than I did. Anyway, my neighbors felt its smell and came to my door to ask for a bite :)

Enjoy!
