Pizzabacken – ein spannendes Erlebnis in Rome
The IT Club will take your kids on some super trips around Rome such as our myths and heroes tour, Pizzamaking and treasure hunts in Villa Borghese. The Pizzabacken is one of the top hits on these kitchen experiences, a sure way to make the best memories with your family.
How to make a Pizza Backen:
The Pizzabacken is an easy and simple dish that can be made quickly, using only a few basic ingredients. It can also be tailored to a variety of tastes.
It’s also perfect for groups. In Neapel it’s an art that grew up there and is now considered a national identity – so much so that Unesco added the craft to their list of immateriellen cultural heritage in 2017.
Pizzabacken can be prepared at home by following a few easy steps.
First of all, it’s important to make sure your firewood is seasoned well. This helps to achieve the neapolitan style of cooking and ensures that your pizza will be crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.
Next, you should let the wood heat up for at least an hour before you begin to cook your pizza. This will help to give it a nice, golden brown colour.
Then, it’s time to add the toppings. Try experimenting with a few different types of cheese, olives, vegetables and herbs.
You can even put your own homemade sauce on it, but we recommend sticking with the traditional Italian flavourings if you want to keep it authentic.
Finally, it’s a good idea to use fresh, whole-wheat flour in order to avoid any niggling issues of gluten. You’ll find it at the supermarket in the baking section.
The final step is to bake your pizza in the oven. This is the most common method, although you can also use a baking tray or pizza stone, but we prefer to use the oven because it’s easier to regulate the temperature and it gives your pizza a better, more evenly cooked result.
