Vegan Pizza



500 g flour
250 ml water
a couple of tablespoons of olive oil
25 g of yeast
ok, these were the original ingredients, but I made a big mess, I weigh the ingredients using a large glass with all mesurements and I measured 250 g of water instead of 250 ml! then the mixture was all soggy … so I added more flour to dry it up … but then I thought it wouldn’t rise properly … so I added half a bag of baking powder … I was desperate, because my evil aim was to beat my grandmother’s boyfriend pizza.  But hei! at the it became huge!
I was watching it with great satisfaction…
Then I made Stracchino which is a kind of very soft and spredable fresh italian cheese, of course this one is a vegan version:
Ingredients for one serving:
8 tablespoons soy milk
2 tablespoons of glutinous rice flour (or flour 00)
1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon soy cream
2 teaspoons lemon juice filtered
a pinch of salt
2 heaped tablespoons of natural soy yogurt
In a nonstick saucepan, melt the rice flourand the cornstarch in milk.  Add soy cream, salt and lemon juice.
Put it on a low heat until creamy enough. Turn off, let it cool a little and add the yogurt and stir with a spoon or fork to mix everything well, taste for salt and adjust if necessary and if you like or slightly acidic you can add a few drops of lemon juice. This way you will get a soft and creamy stracchino.

After an hour of rising, I knead the dough again, spread the pizza out on a baking tray and topped it with tomato and garlic + + + chili + basil + oregano oil, mushrooms, artichokes and olives and of course my stracchino …
In a very hot oven for 10 minutes
this was my first pizza, we ate it in a second:

Francis said this was amongst the best pizzas he’s ever had!
I put the rest of the dough in the freezer and hope to make more soon 🙂

Bye everyone!

    Stracchino cheese is really interesting. I never found it on the internet but seems very good

    Thanks for the recipe. Just wondering about your statement saying “I measured 250 g of water instead of 250 ml”.

    The density of water is pretty close to 1 at room temperature, ie, one would expect that 250 g would be close 250 mL. I was very surprised to read your statement.
