Total Time 1hour40minutes
¼cup/ 50ml Milk
½cup/ 100ml lukewarm water
0.5oz/ 10g Fresh yeast
2½cup/ 300g Flour
4tablespoon/ 50g Butter
17oz/ 500g Tomatoes
½cup/ 100ml Olive oil
7oz/ 200g Cheesetopping
Put the fresh yeast into half cup of lukewarm milk. Set it aside whilst preparing the other ingredients.
Get a big bowl and put flour, sliced room temperature butter, egg and the lukewarm water in it.
Pour the yeasty milk into a big bowl on top of the other ingredients.
Knead the mixture well until it’s even and there’s no flour left on the edge of the bowl.
Cover the bowl and leave it in a warm place for about an hour to rise. (We can put it in the 100°F / 40°C heated oven. Be careful not to turn the heat higher than that as it would kill the yeast so the dough didn't rise.)
In the meantime, prepare the filling. Chop tomatoes, basil, oregano, salt and olive oil in a blender.
Pour it into a saucepan, bring it to boil and simmer it for half an hour while stirring occasionally.
Take it off heat and let it cool down somewhat. Pouring hot sauce on the dough would make it gooey and so hard to handle that it would ruin our day.
(For more detailed instructions with photos check out our tomato sauce recipe at the Low Carb Condiments.)
After an hour waiting take dough out of the bowl onto a well-floured work surface and roll it into a 12 inch / 30cm square. Flouring underneath the dough is important as this coating will prevent it to stick down.
Cut the rolled out dough into 3x3 equal squares.
Spoon the preferably room temperature tomato sauce into each small squares and make little dough balls out of them. When making the balls, use a plastic scraper to help getting the dough off the worktop if it’s necessary. The dough is quite soft so try not to pull it more than necessary.
Place the dough balls into the round cake form not too tightly next to each other.
Brush the leftover tomato sauce on top.
Grate cheese and sprinkle it on as well.
Turn on oven to 350°F / 180°C.
Whilst heating up the oven set the dough aside in a warm place to rest/raise for another 10 minutes.
Finally put the tray into the preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until cheese gets golden brown.
Serve it warm straight out of the oven.
