It all starts from the early morning when we prepare the dough. Normal wheat flour, water, pure honey from our Kalamata friend, extra virgin olive oil from our own groves, a bit of salt and some fresh yeast is all you need to start with.
Follows the meshing for about ½ an hour and then you leave the dough covered to rest till it doubles its size.
What' s next?
Have to deal with the clay oven: Plenty of Olive wood to open the fire near the mouth-floor of the oven. Slowly-slowly we spread the fire to cover all the floor and reach a temperature near the 500 degrees!
1 ½ hours of burning fire is enough to make the oven ready to cook the pizzas.
In between we have finished preparing the handmade tomato sauce and fresh toppings and and the herbs to please wide range of tastes of our guests, like: bacon, turkey, green peppers, onions, aubergines, courgettes, tomatoes, olives, baby zucchini, oregano, mint and parsley from our veg patch and of course a mix of cheeses and the extra virgin olive oil! All these are laid in the long wooden table to make it easy for our guests to choose and make their customized pizza!
Time to “open” the pizza dough and place it in the pans so that the guests can take their pan and carry on to build up their own pizza. Then, it only takes a few minutes to be baked at our clay oven, enough time to relax and chill out with your drink in the beach front verandas before you start to enjoy your customized pizza!
