Soft, light and fluffy Italian pizza dough

Every time I go to see my family I can not avoid eating a delicious Italian pizza dough, it does not matter if it’s at home or in a restaurant, where at least in the south, I have the four places that never fail me, but in Italy, as in Spain, not all pizzerias make a good pizza so you have to know where to go.

How many times have you spent eating a pizza and then feeling bloated and very thirsty? That happens because the pizza maker (in Italian “pizzaiolo”) would probably be in a hurry and has not left to ferment and ripen the dough the necessary time or it may have been spent with the dose of yeast. The result is a pizza dough that is indigestible and heavy.

To make a good Italian pizza dough it is not enough to mix a few ingredients. You have to find the just proportions between them and have some patience.

How to make a light and digestible Italian pizza dough

When we crave a pizza we want to eat it almost already, you may not like what I am going to say now. However, I ask you to give me an opportunity and at least try to make an Italian pizza dough as I indicated at least once. Surely after trying it will cost you to prepare a quick pizza dough again.

As a premise, keep in mind that the masses must be felt, as I have already told you in the recipe of the focaccia, each one has a different climate and humidity, also the brands of products that we use may be different. However, we can all follow the following indications.

Time, flour, yeast, water, and salt.

First, plan your pizza at least one day before. We need to leave the dough to ferment for at least 24 hours at low temperature (in the refrigerator). The long and cold ripening times help the yeast work the minimum necessary to achieve the complete maturation of the dough. The time that our dough has to go cold is related to the strength of the flour we use (more time more strength) and the amounts of water, yeast, and salt.

The right balance makes the difference!

To prepare an Italian pizza dough with long fermentation times, we need flour with a higher protein content so that the dough forms a good glutinous mesh capable of holding the fermentation gases well inside. I advise you to mix flour of force with normal flour in the proportion of 2/3. We will also prepare a mass of Italian pizza with 75% hydration (75 g of water per 100 of flour) to achieve a manageable dough and ideal to spread on the baking tray. If you are a beginner in the world of pizza I advise you to use a 70% hydration but if you want to see how far you can get try with a hydration up to 85% … you will see what result!

What ingredients to put on the pizza

Without any doubt, choose a fresh mozzarella ball, not the prepared ones already grated. Cut it a couple of hours before you release the water, if necessary, squeeze it with your hands to release more water…

So that your pizza can be very good, use tomato sauce without cooking, better if it is Italian. You can do it if you have tomatoes at home following this recipe or you can buy it in a hypermarket. If you use crushed tomato tin try to filter it with a fine mesh steel colander to lose excess water. It seems silly but the tomato is essential if it is a light red pizza.

I hope you try this recipe and tell me if it has been worth the wait. If you have any questions left, leave me a comment and I will answer you as soon as possible. If you are looking for a quick recipe for emergencies try the Italian pizza dough, you will be surprised how good they are.

How to facilitate children’s Primary learning

Primary learning does not have to seek to imbue the child with an important load of knowledge, as well as provide him with the tools and skills that will allow him later to be a self-sufficient student so that he is able to acquire more knowledge from Secondary.

Knowing how to read and write are, together with knowing how to listen and speak, the basis on which all education is based. Likewise, language difficulties will be reflected in all subjects.

The importance of mathematics for the child

Primary learning

Another great Primary learning educational matter also important for its instrumental nature is Mathematics, which provide tools and operational base not only for science careers but also in others, since statistics is, for example, present in many careers of letters. This subject trains the child to know how to think, analyze, reason and anticipate consequences in a logical way. Contrary to what some think, Mathematics is close to the student’s real life. The very fact that today’s children are very consumer makes them need calculation.

Subject to the knowledge of the environment

Primary learning

Knowledge of the Environment (History, History of Art, Geography, Natural Sciences and Physics) is another relevant subject, which allows to open the child’s mind to the complexity of the world and primary learning situations such as the neighborhood, the city, nature, museums ??, placing it better in their environment. It is positive that parents, in parallel with the action of the school, provide the child opportunities to expand horizons through contact with friendly families, shows, trips and other environments. Very closed families in their small worlds limit the possibilities of the child.

Eat and sleep well so you can learn

Primary learning

The child needs to have his or her needs for food and sleep well covered. Some children do not sleep well and yawn in class because they go to bed too late. Others take very light breakfasts, while some more are overloaded with extracurricular activities (sometimes, motivated by the fact that parents do not have time to pick them up at school at a certain time), which turns their day into a stressful time trial race.

Primary learning children need to play. At this stage, you should not take home too many duties. After spending the whole day at school and having done other extracurricular activities, the house should not be an extension of the school.

The time to study in each

Primary learning

The Primary learning study requires time and habit. In order to facilitate this habit, a fixed time and schedule is essential every day, as well as having the appropriate environment. The child must have a specific place in the house to study; a place that is quiet, without a television, well lit and specifically intended for that activity.

It is important the order of notebooks and books, which must always be in the same place. The most frequently used should be placed at hand from the table so that the child does not have to get up to pick them up. It is convenient to get used to the use of the agenda, which will play an important role later. This agenda is a good ally when it comes to programming.

A cork board can also be useful to always keep in view the most necessary information. We have to invite the child to attend in class (many of the doubts that have been resolved in the classroom) and ask when he does not understand something. In this way, he will not lose the rhythm of the explanations and will primary learning to intervene with his peers, which will have positive repercussions in his adult stage.
