2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar


1 x 400 g can chopped tomato

Pizza is a great sharing food for movie nights and parties. You’ll never order a pizza again after making a pizza using NEFF’s CircoTherm® Intensive. The extra base heat will make a pizza with a golden crust without a pizza stone. Left-over pizza is also good for lunch boxes.


Place all of the dough ingredients in a mixer with a dough hook and knead for 5 – 10 minutes on a medium speed. Put dough in a bowl in the oven, select Dough Prove and adjust time to 45 minutes or prove until dough doubles in size. If you do not have a proving function cover the dough with a damp towel and place in a warm place until it doubles in size.

While the dough is proving strain the chopped tomato, discard liquid.  Add the garlic and season with salt and pepper.

Pick the basil leaves.

Preheat the oven on CircoTherm® Intensive to 200⁰C. Line universal tray with baking paper.

Once the dough has proved, roll out to the size of the universal tray and then place on baking paper.

Spread tomato mixture to cover the base of the pizza, then place half the mozzarella over the base followed by the basil leaves, slices of buffalo mozzarella and olives. Tear the prosciutto slices into halves and then lay on top, followed by the remaining the mozzarella cheese.

Place on level 1 of the oven and cook for 20 minutes or until the cheese has browned to personal taste.

Remove and place onto a cooling rack for 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
