Recipe: Argentine Pizza a la Parrilla
Grilling is Argentina's most treasured pastime, and the grill the most cherished appliance, so it's only natural for the great parrillato join forces with this pizza. The ultra-thin, delicate dough is grilled over hot coals on one side for five minutes, then flipped over and topped with minimal ladles of red sauce, a variety of fresh ingredients, and cheese, before being grilled for five to seven minutes longer.
Step 1:Heat grill to 450°F
Step 2:Prepare toppings –anyway you like! Some different ideas:
Sautéed mushrooms, sliced steak, & blue cheese, roasted garlic paste
Sliced deli ham, mozzarella, hard-boiled egg slices, roasted red peppers& green olives with red sauce
Onions sautéed with oregano & olive oil, mozzarella (fugazetta style)
Step 3:Prepare the crust
2cups all-purpose flour
1 packet Pizza yeast (we will have these available at The Wine Shop 8/18-8/21)
1 tsp sugar
½tsp table salt or 1 tsp kosher salt
2/3 c warm water, not more than 120°F
3 Tbls olive oil
Combine all ingredients to form a smooth dough Knead for about 4 minutes on a lightly floured surface, until the dough is elastic & not sticky
Cut the dough in half
Roll or pat out 2-10” thin round crusts(each about the size of a dinner plate)
Step 4: Grill!
Put pizza crusts on the grill for 3-5 minutes until side one lifts off easily; flip it over & add your toppings, grill another 5-7 minutes until hot through & cheese is melty
