Sundaze Homemade Pizzaaa 🍕 

Happy Sunday to you all!! For today’s post I am sharing my pizza recipe 

What you’ll need 

Dough 

2 tsp yeast 

1 tsp sugar 

4 cups AP flour 

2 T sugar 

1 T salt 

1 1/2 cups of warm water

3 T olive oil 

First prepare your yeast by adding the 2 tsp and 1 tsp sugar with a little bit of water, set it aside and let it rise. In a mixer place your dry ingredients, mix them. Then to your yeast mixture add the water and olive oil. Put the dough paddle and in slow speed start adding the water mixture. Once added completely mix at medium speed for 5 minutes. Remove it from bowl and on a floured surface kneat for 2 or 3 minutes. Make a ball and cover a bowl with olive oil and set it inside. Let it rise for at least 3 hours cut it in half and let it rise for about 20 minutes or until double the size. You can save your dough or use it all. I usually use just one half. 

Filling 

3 tomatoes finely chopped in squares 

1 T olive oil 

1 tsp balsamic vinegar 

Salt and pepper to taste 

100 grs. of mozzarella 

And any toppings you may like 

Place the tomatoes on a bowl and add the olive oil, salt & balsamic vinegar. I use that as my tomatoe base. Place all the toppings you wany 

Turn on your oven to 420 F or 225 C. Place a rock plate (you can get those at Bed Bath & Beyond and they make the bottom of your pizza crispy) 

On a floured surface place your dough and flatten it out and trying to keep it as circular as possible, add your tomatoe, then shredded cheese, and place any toppings you want. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. 

Enjoy! 🍕🤤 







Baked Buns 

For today’s baking post dish I wanted to share my recipe for burger buns. I was able to find this recipe at http://www.aseasyasapplepie.com I loved her take at this traditional bread but I have done my own twerks to the recipe.

Hope you guys enjoy & happy Saturday! 😊

You will need:

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup water

1/3 cup hot water

2 7/8 T butter (I use salted & room temperature)

7 T sugar * I like my bread sweet, if you don’t you can put whatever amount you want (ex: 2T)

1 tsp salt * If you do not put 7T of sugar you can skip this step

4 cups AP Flour

3/4 tsp yeast and less than 1/2 tsp sugar *

*for the yeast you put the dry yeast with the tsp of sugar and add a little bit of water so it covers the yeast and sugar. Set it aside and let it rise while you prep the rest of your ingredients. (See image below)

On a mixer with the hook tool you first put the flour, sugar, and salt. Mix it a little on slow and add the room temperature butter. Mix it for a moment and slowly add your yeast with the milk and water. Mix it at medium speed for 5 minutes. If your dough looks dry it is okay let it mix and everything will incorporate (see image below). When ready remove the hook and just knead it for a moment. Remove it from mixing bowl, make it round and place it on a round container. Cover it until it has doubled in size. Once it has reached the desired size (see image below) make small balls or the size you want your buns to be. Place on a sheet pan with parchment paper and brush them with milk. Let them rise for 1 hour and once ready (when you put your finger and the dough comes back) brush once more with milk and bake at 350 F or 175 C for 10 minutes or until golden.112345678910111223456789101112

 

 

 

 

Monday Soulful Baking

Hello everyone! For today’s post I am sharing a special recipe. It is a typical savory pastry from where I am from. We call it “Rollo de Queso” or “Cheese roll up” though it is not so much of a roll up as it is the dough flipped to the center. This recipe is very special as it was my great grandmas but my mother did some twerks to make it better!

Hope you guys enjoy! 👅

You will need:

Dry Ingredients

3 cups AP Flour

3 tsp baking powder

Wet Ingredients

100 gr of butter

3/4 cup of sugar

3 egg replacement* or 4 egg yolks

1/2 Kilo of white cheese* or any other cheese you prefer

1 tsp olive oil

1 tsp milk

Milk to what your dough needs (maybe 1/4 cup)

*for the egg replacement we use for each egg

1 tsp baking powder

1 T olive oil

1 T water

*For the white cheese, the one we use back home is very salty so for the one you find in the U.S. you can add 1T kosher salt

*For the white cheese if you are not using the eggs you add 1tsp olive oil and 1 tsp of milk. If you are using eggs, you add the egg whites to the cheese leaving some behind for the paint brush of the roll up

Preparation

Sift the dry ingredients and set aside. On a mixer soften the butter (see image below), add the sugar and once everything mixed together start adding the dry ingredients. You add some milk whenever your mixture is too dry. Once everything is mixed together you divide the dough in fours. With a roller you extend the dough and add the cheese in the center (see image below) you fold it and brush it with milk or egg whites. Bake it at 350 F or 175 C for 15 minutes or more. Enjoy!

PS: they don’t look too beautiful but I swear the taste is 👌
