Babka Pizza



People have been asking me quite frequently for a pizza recipe for a home oven - in my opinion, pizza needs a very hot oven that usually you don’t have at home.

BUT WAIT!!!! I found you the best solution. Babka Pizza.

You will never go back.


Ingredients:


For the dough-

500 gr pizza flour

220 gr sour cream

100 gr sugar

10 gr dry yeast

2 eggs

100 gr salted butter


For the filling-

500 gr passata

100 gr tomato paste (from a tube)

300 gr cheese

2 cloves of garlic

Basil leaves

Pinch of salt



Preparation steps:


- Half an hour before you start preparing this magic, melt the butter and let it cool down. Don’t use it before it has cooled!


- In a mixer bowl pour flour, yeast and sugar. Mix well.


- Add the eggs and sour cream.


- In a stand mixer, start to mix on the lowest speed until the dough starts to come together.


- Add the butter to the dough in pieces. Let the dough absorb the butter and continue to add more until there is no more.


- After adding all the butter, up the speed of the mixer one notch faster. Knead for 10-12 min.


- Round the dough and place in a box. Put the box in the fridge for the next day.


- The following day, take the dough out of the fridge and divide in two. It will and should be a stiff dough. While working on one piece, place the other one back in the fridge.


- Open the dough with a rolling pin to a thin layer.


- Crush two cloves of garlic and basil and add to the passata.


- Spread some tomato paste and the passata onto the dough. Distribute using a scraper.


- Spread the cheese on top of the sauce. It will absorb the sauce a bit and will help us to roll and braid the babka.


- Roll the dough and place in the freezer for 45 min. It will help us to cut through it.


- Repeat the same process with the other piece of the dough.


- After both rolls cool cut them down the middle with a bread knife.


- Braid them and place the pizza babka in a round baking tray.


- Let the babka proof for about 2 hours.


- Preheat the oven to 365F or 185C.


- Spread water and oregano on top and bake for 45 min.



- Take the babka out of the oven.


- Cut to a slice. Basil, Parmigiano Reggiano, olive oil.



- Buon Appetito.
