One-Pan Pizza with Tomato Sauce, Mozzarella and Chorizo

Pfannen-Pizza mit Mozzarella und Chorizo

It is one-pan pizza day! Are you in for a pizza with a thick yet fluffy crust? Then this pizza is for you. It reminds me a little of the one you find at Pizza Hut, but better as it is homemade and from scratch. You will need to invest about 25min into the dough as it has a stretching and folding technique you need to repeat every 5 minutes. But other than that it is mostly waiting as this is a typical yeast dough. I also made my very own tomato sauce. You can go with store-bought, but I didn’t mind chopping garlic and onion for this extra delicious sauce. Since this pizza needs to be made the night before and will be chilled in the fridge, I arranged for it to be eaten during lunch as we like to have our main meal during lunchtime. That’s the beauty of this pizza, depending on when you want to eat it, you can schedule accordingly.

Even my husband approved of this pizza and he makes our entire bread and also is a seasoned pizza-dough maker. So I was extra proud. The recipe yields one pizza with about 23cm in diameter. But we both didn’t manage it even though we were hungry. I believe it has to do with the fact that it has this thick crust and a lot of cheese and other toppings.

Serves: One deep-dish pizza with 23cm
Prep Time: 12hr + 40min Cooking Time: 20min Total Time: 13hr

This pan pizza is prepared the day before and only requires some stretching and folding at the beginning. Perfect for when guests come over.

Ingredients

  • Pizza Dough
  • 240grams of all-purpose flour´
  • 3/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of active-dry yeast
  • 170 grams of lukewarm water
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil plus more for the pan

  • Tomato Sauce
  • Some olive oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Dried chili flakes if desired
  • 400 grams of canned tomatos
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon each of dried oregano, basil, thyme, etc.

  • Toppings
  • 50-80 grams of sliced chorizo
  • 200 grams of grated mozzarella
  • Parmesan if desired

Instructions

1

For the pizza dough mix all ingredients into a large bowl for about a minute until you see no flour pockets using either your hands or a spatula. Form into a ball and let rest for five minutes. Then start the stretching and folding procedure, this will take 20min in total in which you stretch and fold four times. Lift one end of the dough and fold it over to the other side. Rotate the bowl 90 degrees and do it again. Rotate bowl again 90 degrees and repeat. Do this in total four times so that your bowl was rotated 360 degrees. Let dough rest for 5 minutes and then do the 360 degrees rotation with four times stretching and folding again. You will need to do this four times in total, meaning that for 20 minutes you have to strech and fold your dough after resting it each time for five minutes. Once you are done, let it rest for 40min and then transfer to the fridge covered. You can leave in the fridge overnight or up to 72 hours.

2

Three hours before you want to eat the pizza, look for a heavy and deep-dish frying pan with about 23cm in diameter at the bottom. Oil with some olive oil and press the dough inside. Mine worked immediately and it even got a bit thicker towards the edges, if your dough pulls back, wait for 15min and then try again. Cover with a towel and let rest for about two hours.

3

Meanwhile prepare the tomato sauce. For this cut onions and garlic thinnly and heat some olive oil in a frying pan. Let onions sweat in it until translucent, then add garlic and fry for another minute. Add chili flakes to your liking, I like to add three teaspoons, but I like it spicy. Fry for another minute, then add the tomatos and let simmer for about 10-15min until sauce is thick enough to spread on a pizza. Season with salt and pepper and other herbs to your liking. Let cool.

4

Preheat oven to 230 degrees Celsius and place a rack on the second lowest rack. Sprinkle 3/4 of the grated mozzarella on the pizza first for it not to get soggy. Then add the tomatoe sauce and the chorizo slices if using. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella on top and bake for about 18-20 or until the cheese is golden. Let the pizza cool for a few minutes, then release from the pan and transfer to a chopping block, I used two spatulas for this. Serve with additional grated parmesan and some fresh basil. Serve either hot or lukewarm.

    Chorizo kommt bei uns auch auf die Pizza, logisch gell. 😉 Dein Mann hat Recht, auf deine Pan Pizza kannst du wirklich stolz sein. Danke fürs Mitbacken. Bist du am 16. beim World Bread Day auch dabei? Ich würde mich freuen.

    Liebe Jenny,

    Aber wenn ich lese, dass bei euch was übrig war, dann komme ich mir schon wieder so verfressen vor, denn ich habe die Teigmenge etwas erhöht für uns zwei. 🙈😂
