- 2/3 cup lukewarm water (95°F/35°C)
- 1.5 tsp dry yeast
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 tsp pizza sauce
- 2 oz shredded or crumbled
- cheese (mozzarella, Parmesan or gorgonzola)
- Thinly sliced basil
- In Ultimate Mixing Bowl, add lukewarm water, then stir in yeast until completely dissolved. Add flour, olive oil, sugar and salt, then stir. Finish kneading dough by hand until it is smooth and elastic. Make sure it doesn’t stick to the bowl or to your hand.
- Seal and allow dough to rise for 30 min.
- Once dough has risen, knead for a few seconds to punch it down and divide it into 4 equal parts. Roll each piece into a 6 inch circle on a floured surface.
- Place 1 tsp pizza sauce in the center of each dough circle, followed by 2 tbsp. cheese and some basil, being careful not to overfill.
- Gently pull up edges of dough to envelop fillings. Secure the top by pinching the dough, taking care not to overlap excess dough, which could lead to uneven thickness on that side of the bun. Flip buns to have the sealed side on the bottom. Gently press them to flatten a bit.
- You can finish the buns in the oven on a Silicone Baking Sheet with Rim or on the stovetop in a frypan with glass cover.
- For stove option:
- Preheat a frypan with glass cover on medium heat for 3-4 min., with cover on.
- Place buns in the frypan, sealed side down, cover and cook on medium-low heat for 10 min., flip them and cook for 10 more min. If needed, cook for a few more minutes on each side until golden brown.
For oven option:
- Remove oven rack and preheat oven to 400°F/200°C. Set Silicone Baking Sheet with Rim on the cold oven rack.
- Place buns on the baking sheet, sealed side down. Brush buns with a bit of water or olive oil for a glossy finish.
- Place oven rack with Silicone Baking Sheet back in the oven at the second lowest level and bake for approx. 20 min., or until buns turn golden brown.
*Fill with a limited amount of cheese as the filling will cook in a closed environment and will release steam. Overfilling might result in leaking during the cooking.
