Ingredients list


Tomato sauce

  • 500 g San Marzano tomatoes passed
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • tbsp olive oil extra virgin




  • Add the yeast to the lukewarm water and dissolve. Put the wheat flour, 00 flour, durum wheat semolina and salt in the mixing bowl of the stand mixer and let knead with the dough hook on the lowest speed.
  • Gradually add the yeast water. Then add the oil as well. Let the dough knead for at least 7 minutes. The longer, the better.
  • Once the dough has a nice smooth surface and there are no more dough scraps hanging from the mixing bowl, turn off the machine. Release the dough from the hook, shape it into a ball and return it to the bowl. Cover with a cloth and let rest for at least 2 hours.
  • Tip:
    The longer the dough can rest, the better it will be! It is best to prepare the pizza dough a day in advance and then let it rest in the refrigerator, covered with a cloth. Then take the dough out about 3 hours before preparation and let it rest covered at room temperature.
  • After resting, transfer the dough to a floured work surface, divide into 4 pieces and form each into balls. Cover everything again with a cloth and let rest for another 30 minutes.

Tomato sauce

  • Put the passed tomatoes, salt, pepper, olive oil and oregano in a bowl and mix thoroughly.


  • Preheat the oven to 250°C (500°F) top/bottom heat.
  • Fray the mozzarella into small pieces with your hands or cut into slices. Wash and dry the arugula.
  • Roll out the dough on a floured baking paper and then place it on a baking sheet. Pour some of the tomato sauce on the pizza dough and top with the mozzarella.
  • Then bake for about 10 minutes at 250°C (500°F) top/bottom heat on the lowest rack.
  • After baking, cover the pizza as desired with Parma ham and arugula. Sprinkle with finely shaved pieces of Parmesan and serve immediately.
    Buon appetito!

My tip

By “pulling” the dough and not rolling it out, more air remains in the dough. This makes the pizza dough nice and fluffy during baking.
For the best baking results, use a pizza stone (bottom rack) for your oven. Turn the oven temperature as high as possible for top/bottom heat. The hotter, the better. The pizza will be ready after about 6 to 7 minutes (depending on the oven and temperature).
