Dear Pizza, a welcome guest for young and old! However, there are different opinions about the dough base and topping. Some prefer wafer-thin and crispy, others swear by more American, thicker pizza bases. The same applies to the topping: marinated grilled vegetables, parma ham with parmesan slicer and rocket or rather the simple salami variant? And what about the cheese? Italian mozzarella or would you prefer the 4 cheese variant?
The variety of variants is enormous, but how about a completely different, new pizza variant? Have you ever tried pizza plucked bread?
Whether as a side dish with the classic spaghetti with tomato sauce, as a replacement for bought herb baguettes at barbecues or for a special evening meal, the best thing is that the plucked bread does not do much work. It is ready for the oven within a few minutes and is considerably juicier than the baguette or bread you would otherwise buy. It smells sensational and above all it is nice and light and fluffy. Just a handful of bliss. As with the well-known pizza variant, it can be filled at will, which gives the bread a certain addictive potential. Mamma mia, that’s delicious!
