HOME-MADE PIZZA

This is the best pizza ever!!! The most difficult thing to prepare is the dough but once you get it, you can create your very own pizza with your favourite ingredients.
             Dough ingredients:
                   – 300 gr. flour
                   – Half glass of warm water (it’s important to be warm)
                   – 2 olive oil soup spoons
                   – 2 full coffee spoons of baker’s yeast (much better to buy it at the baker’s)
                   – Salt
                   – Spices (oregano, garlic, parsley, basil… any!)
Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix them with your hands until the dough is consistent, no lumps. Add more flour or water if you need it. After that, spread flour over the countertop and place there the dough. Knead it for at least 15 minutes or until the dough is flexible and soft. Leave it in another bowl for 30-45 minutes covered with a humid cloth to let it rise.
After that long half an hour, spread some more flour over the countertop and stretch the dough with a rolling pin or your hands.
Preheat the oven at 200º.

TOMATO SALAD

Salads are great and sometimes we can add many different ingredients to get a tasty and colourful one. They are very easy to prepare, and here you are the easiest one.
This salad has only 2 main ingredients plus the dressing, so you won’t spend much time peeling and adding a lot of things.
                  Ingredients:
                              – Tomatoes (2 are ok, but it always depends on how big they are and how many
                                 you are)
                              – Onion
                              – Olive oil
                              – Salt
                              – Spice (Recommended basil, but oregano or parsley are also fine)
You can peel the tomates if you are used to, add onion to taste (if you don’t like it too much, just add a little). Be generous with the olive oil, add salt and the spice or spices you like most.
The result is an easy, very tasty and fresh salad for those hot days in summer in which you don’t feel like cooking anything. It can be a great starter to share or a side dish for any course.

The best is that, at the end, you will have the tomato’s juice mixed with the olive oil and basil, so you can dunk some bread and enjoy it a lot more!!
