SMOKY FLAT BREAD PIZZA

Interestingly, Pizza has become one of the nations favourite imported food in Ghana. It’s popularity over the years across the country has encouraged a few openings of Pizzerias across the country.
The idea of making my own Pizza with the flavours I love encouraged me to create this recipe. The smokiness was inspired by my Mum’s char grilling of Tomatoes for sauces and a friends advise on how to get the stone baked smoky flavour for my flat bread.


With these knowledge I combined the two processes and ended up with a flavour packed customized Pizza that’s easy to emulate.
The bread mix includes natural Yoghurt, which gives the dough a nice tangy flavour and makes it soft.


I’ve started the ‘Ndudu by Fafa Simple supper series’ to encourage everyone to cook from scratch with the help of my Kitchen hacks.
Tip: When baking bread, please don’t add salt directly to the yeast. It kills the yeast.
One can be creative about the toppings they use for their Pizza. Try using The Ghanaian smoked Tuna, Keta  School boys etc as an alternative. You can omit the Cheese if you don’t have access to it, since the smoky salsa is packed full of flavour.
I’ll encourage you to subscribe to my YouTube channel, ‘Ndudu by Fafa’ to avoid missing any episodes. I’ll appreciate your help in growing the channel by liking the videos, trying the recipes, commenting with your feedback and also sharing the videos with your family and friends.
The first episode of the series was making of the smoky sauce , which I’ll be using to make this Pizza.
INGREDIENTS:

330g of bread flour
175g of lukewarm water
1 levelled teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoonful of natural Yoghurt
10g of dry yeast
1 teaspoonful of Sugar
3 tablespoonful of Extra Virgin Olive oil

TIPS:

  • The inclusion of Yoghurt softens the dough and allows the dough to rise quickly
  • Always add the salt first to a bowl, then the flour and the rest of the ingredients. Please avoid having the yeast come into direct contact with the salt. Salt kills the yeast, hence your dough won't rise. Mixing everything together to form a dough after is perfect.
