Mottel Pizza

Home made Mottel Pizza:

Dough (based on Spice and Sprit recipe):

2 cups water
2 packages dry yeast
2 tsps. Sugar
5 cups flour
1/2 tsp. Salt
4 Tbsps. Oil
Rosemary kneaded in to taste.


Pesto, spread across dough.
fresh mozzarella
grated Parmesan
Sun-dried tomatoes 

I served it with a bottle of Saison DuPont.

Food for thought:

  • Fresh mozzarella is generally white, but may vary seasonally to slightly yellow depending on the animal's diet. It is a semi-soft cheese. Due to its high moisture content, it is traditionally served the day it is made, but can be kept in brine for up to a week
  • Sun dried tomatoes were created in the tile roofs of Italy as a way to store fresh tomatoes for the winter. This technique is still used for tomatoes, only in much larger quantities of tomatoes and for commercial use (commercially available tomatoes).
  • The name pesto is the contracted past participle of the Genoese word pestâ (Italian: pestare) which means "to pound, to crush" in reference to the sauce's crushed herbs and garlic. This same Latin root through Old French also gave rise to the English word pestle.

Sounds good! I like it better with oregano in the dough, as I learned from an Italian pizzeria, but to each his own! :-)
