MGK Smoked Tomato Sauce on your Pizza Base
So this is a simple and short article outlining the use of our Smoked Tomato Sauce on your pizza base.
When you make your pizza bases, instead of using the normal tomato paste on your pizza base, smear a good covering of MGK's Smoked Tomato Sauce over the base. This gives a wonderful "Smokey" flavor to your pizza not unlike a Wood Fire Pizza.
If you like a little chilli then you could also use our Smoked BBQ Chilli Sauce or if you are really into your chilli then Satan's Breath or Satan's Fury. Just depends on how hot you like it.
This is the recipe we use for our Pizza Bases. It is a very standard recipe however, there is no limit to what you can add to develop your favorite flavors.
375ml (1 1/2 cups) warm water
Pinch of caster sugar
2 teaspoons (7g/1 sachet) dried yeast
600g (4 cups) plain flour, plus extra for dusting
1 teaspoon salt. Use Sea Salt for additional flavor
60ml (1/4 cup) olive oil, plus extra for brushing
Combine water, yeast and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes or until foamy. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl and make a well in the center. Add the yeast mixture and oil. Use a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion to mix until the mixture is combined. Use your hands to bring the dough together in the bowl.
Brush a bowl lightly with oil. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place in the prepared bowl and turn to coat in oil. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes or until dough doubles in size.
Dust work surface with flour. Knead dough and form into a long cylinder. Divide into thirds. Use a rolling pin to roll each third into a 20cm disc, then add your MGK Smoked Sauce and any toppings you like and bake at 180 C.
