Recipe for a delicious pizza with mascarpone, Serrano ham and thin slices of potatoes. This is an amazing white pizza that’s easy to make. The homemade cold fermented pizza dough is the best pizza dough you can make and it's so easy to whip together!
Cold fermented pizza dough:
7.58 oz (215 g) water
0.18 oz (5 g) yeast
0.28 oz (8 g) salt
11.11 oz (315 g) wheat flour
5.29 oz (150 g) mascarpone
1 x fresh mozzarella
7.05 oz (200 g) potatoes
2.12 oz (60 g) Serrano ham
1 yellow onion
2 garlic cloves
0.25 bundle fresh parsley
Cold fermented pizza dough:
- This is a recipe that requires patience but not a ton of work. The dough has to be in the fridge for 15-18 hours.
- Start by mixing the yeast into the water.
- Now add 3.53 (100 g) flour and mix well until combined. Add salt and then little by little add the remaining flour while mixing. The dough shouldn’t be wet and has to combine like a ball. This requires a lot of mixing and kneading.
- When you have a beautiful ball of dough, put it in a bowl and cover it with saran wrap. Then put the bowl in the fridge for at least 15-18 hours.
Building your pizzas:
- After the time has passed, take your dough out of the fridge 2 hours before you need it. Take the dough out of the bowl and knead it a bit, split it into 2 equal pieces and form them like buns. Place them on the kitchen table and let them rise for 2 hours.
- Turn on the oven on 530 F (275 C) or as high as your oven allows. Put a baking tray or pizza stone inside the oven to heat it up properly.
- Form the 2 buns of dough into pizzas by using your hands to stretch and form. Then place them both on their own baking sheet.
- Spread the mascarpone across the pizza dough, and then rip up the fresh mozzarellaost and sprinkle across the pizzas.
- Grab your KUMA knife and thinly slice your onion, garlic and potatoes (as thin as you can). Add this on top of the pizzas.
- Take the hot baking tray out of the oven and drag one pizza and the baking paper onto the tray.
- Bake each pizza for 8-10 minutes depending on your oven. Only bake 1 pizza at a time.
- While the pizzas are baking, prepare the Serrano ham.
- Heat up a pan without any grease. Add as many slices of Serrano ham as your pan allows without stacking them. Fry them for 2-3 minutes per side or until crispy. Take them off and put on a plate.
- When the pizzas are ready, top off with the crispy Serrano, parsley and some fresh black pepper. Enjoy!
