Don’t worry because our friend Renato Bosco - a pizza maker - has thought of everything and prepared a detailed step-by-step guide to help you achieve an incredibly fragrant pizza, the queen of the culinary specialties of Southern Italy!
Put the flour, the mature starter dough, the yeast and water in a food mixer. Knead thoroughly. Then add salt and oil. The dough is finished when you get a nice elastic ball. Put it in a container to rise before making the individual balls for each pizza. When it has risen, pull the dough gently with your fingertips giving the pizza a round shape, leaving a ridge. Top with tomato, mozzarella, anchovies, capers and salami. Then bake at 300°C for 3-4 minutes.
