Bismarck Pizza

Last time, when my sister and her boyfriend came to visit us, we went an Italian restaurant for dinner. The restaurant name is Saizeriya. The restaurant claims to serve fusion food of Japanese and Italian. Its rating is 4.7, which is very high on Google and many comments are positive. And the price is very reasonable and affordable. The most important thing is food there is very nice. We tried its pizza, spaghetti, soup, escargot, and ravioli. All are very nice.

There is one special pizza, Bismarck pizza. We tried it for the first time. Pizza looks not very hard to make, since I can tell the main ingredients are pizza dough, cheese, bacon, spinach and egg. Yes! An egg in the middle, that’s why it’s special and also why my husband loves it. Egg is the key part. Although I don’t know exactly how to cook it, I tried to copy the one we had in the restaurant today.

For the pizza dough:


Preheat oven to 200 degree.

I made it in a very simple way. Brush pizza dough with a little tomato sauce. Then sprinkle mozzarella cheese. ( I just tore the mozzarella ball with my hand.)

Cut 2 strips streaky bacon and spread them over pizza dough and make a circle in the middle. That’s the spot where I crack an egg. Sprinkle a little black pepper on the top.

Into the oven for 13-15 mins.

While pizza was baking. I bleach several stalks of spinach in water for 30 seconds. Then soaked them in cold water. Squeeze them very hard to let the water out.

In the last 3 mins, spread cooked spinach over the pizza.

And the Bismarck pizza is done with a beautiful egg in the middle.

My husband loves it.

Pepperoni Pizza

Double Cheese Pizza With Homemade Pizza Sauce

For pizza sauce:

1. Wash 1 cup cherry tomatoes in water. Cut a cross at the bottom of each tomato.

2. Soak tomatoes in boiling water for a little while to make it easy to peel them.

3. Heat a sauce pan. Add in 2 tsp olive oil. When the oil heated, add in 2 cloves chopped garlic. Sauté till aromatic.

4. Add in all the peeled cherry tomatoes. Stir fry and press with spatula or a spoon. It’s fine to have some tomato lumps. That actually makes pizza taste better.

5. Add in 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp dried herbs, 1 tsp sugar and 1 tablespoon tomato sauce. Mix all the ingredients well and set aside to cool down.

I found a very inspiring video on YouTube. And this enthusiastic Italian cook showed everybody how he made a perfect pizza. I just followed his guide.

For the pizza dough:

1 1/2 cup bread flour

1/2 cup warm water (more or less due to different flour)

3 g instant yeast

1 tsp salt.

Mix flour and salt in a bowl. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Pour yeast water into flour. Knead into a dough. If the flour is too sticky, then add more flour. Fold the dough several times. Then place it in a bowl, cover with plastic and let it rise till 2 times big.

Preheat oven to 220 degree C.

Press the dough into a big thin pizza dough. Brush pizza sauce. Sprinkle a little salt. Drizzle olive oil. Grate Parmesan cheese. Then sprinkle mozzarella cheese (I’m always very generous with mozzarella cheese, that’s why my pizza always looks white on the surface. 🙂 ), and basil leaves. Drizzle a little olive oil again.

Into the oven and bake for 7 mins.

The whole kitchen is full of sweet fragrance . It smells so so good.

So far, this is the best pizza I’ve ever cooked. It tastes so so good.
