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! 🍕🤤 







Love me some layers 👅🤤

Happy humpday everybody!! Today I wanted to share my favorite recipe for the “One thousand layer cake” *side note it won’t be 1k layers but it does feel like you are making one like that, totally worth it though 👌

The recipe is from Miriam Baptista’s cooking book. You will need to prepare the dough 2 days ahead *repeat it is tootallyyy worth it* 

What you will need:

1 or 227 gr of butter 

1 1/2 cups of sugar 

3 eggs or egg replacement 

1/2 cup of milk 

2 tsp vanilla extract

5 cup AP flour

1/2 tsp salt

3 tsp baking powder 

1 1/2 or 2 cups of dulce de leche 

2 cups of cream 

2 T shredded coconut 

Preparation 

2 days ahead 

Sift your dry ingredients set aside. On a mixer soften the butter and slowly add the sugar. Once mixed together slowly add the eggs or egg replacement and vanilla extract. Once mixed in start adding the flour and milk. Place on wrap paper fully covered and leave on the fridge for one day. 

1 day ahead 

Use a round plate (regular serving plate) or a cake mold and make rounds. Cut them and set them aside. Divide your dough on 14 peaces and flatten the dough on the parchment paper as pictures. Bake at 350 F or 175 C for about 5 minutes or until golden on the sides. Be careful because they bake fast. As they come out of the oven place them on top of each other. Once all baked set them aside and leave them resting over night. 

Serving day 

On the serving day you will fill the cake. Purchase dulce de leche or make your own*just place canned condense milk, I would do 3 or 4 cans just incase, in a big pot and set to boil for approximately 4 hours* Prepare your cream and set aside. You can layer the cake 1 dulce de leche 1 cream, I personally prefer doing 2 dulce de leche and 1 cream. Just make sure the top of your cake is dulce de leche. Once finishing layering on the top part sprinkle the shreded coconut and that is it! Enjoy! 

PS: this cake gets better the day after 😏👌

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
