How to make deep and soft pizza in a pan

Dissolve yeast

1. First, put the yeast in a large bowl, add half the water, a pinch of sugar to activate it and mix with a spoon to dissolve the yeast.

First dough

2. Add 2/3 of the flour a little at a time and mix with the help of a spoon or wooden spoon until you get a sticky mixture.

Second dough and rest

3. Add the rest of the flour, water, oil and salt. Knead the dough vigorously until it is soft and sticky, then cover it with transparent film and let it rest for about 15-20 minutes.

Make the folds

4. After this time, pick up the dough and knead it on a floured work surface so that it incorporates air. To do this, fold two flaps of dough – the first opposite the second – in order to create the classic folds. Repeat this job 2-3 times , then put the dough back into a greased bowl.

Make the folds again

5. Let it rest again for 15 minutes then proceed with the same step once again, in order to obtain a firm and compact dough.

Let dough rise

6. Transfer the dough once more to a greased bowl, cover with cling film and leave to rise in the fridge until the dough has doubled in volume (however we recommend about 24 hours).

Spread pizza dough on pan

7. Then spread the dough with your fingers, directly inside a pan of about 30×40 cm, greased with olive oil.

Season with tomato puree

8. Season your pizza with the tomato puree and bake at 230°C for 15 minutes , preferably on the lower levels of the oven.

Remove the pizza from the oven and add the diced mozzarella

9. Once the time has elapsed, temporarily remove from the oven and add the mozzarella cut into cubes and left to drain in the kitchen sink, in a colander.

The perfect flour for making pan pizza

To prepare this luscious single dish, the choice of flour is essential: in fact, to make the dough more elastic and workable, we recommend using medium-strong flours or a mix containing them. For this reason we have opted for 50% 00 flour (weak) and 50% Manitoba flour . Alternatively, however, you can also try using 100% 0 flour. If you want, you can also experiment with the dough starting from this base.
