Hawaian Pizza Topping
- Make the biga-mixture Dissolve 4 g of fresh yeast in 225 ml of water and pour it over 500 g of strong high-protein flour. Mix the ingredients with a spoon until the water is gone. Then, gently mix with your hands for 2-3 minutes. The biga now has a stringy, crumbly texture. Cover it with cling film and punch holes in the film to let the mixture breath. Let it rest for 18-20 hours at room temperature.
- Turn pre-ferment into pizza dough. Add the biga pre-ferment to a mixer, along with a bit of water. Just enough to ensure that the mixer does not struggle too much. Mix for 15 minutes. Add 1 g of fresh yeast and a bit of extra water to help the yeast dissolve. Then, add 15 g of salt. Once, the salt is incorporated into the biga, turn up the mixer speed and add the rest of the water (a total of 125 ml for this step) and 10 g of olive oil. When the oil is gone, the dough is ready.
- After fermentation, fold and stretch the dough a few times to make it stronger. Make one big dough ball and let it rest for 5 minutes. Cut the dough into lumps of 300 g and make a dough ball for each pizza. Let the dough balls prove for 2-4 hours at room temperature or 8-12 hours in the fridge.
- Make the Pizza sauce buy adding all ingredients into a robot coupe and pulse a few times. Do not make it smooth, keep it rustic.
- Sprinkle semolina on the table, pour out the dough and sprinkle a bit of semolina on the dough, which is quite sticky.
