Classic Italian pizza dough

real italian pizza dough recipe step by step

Our family has one delicious tradition - every Saturday night we all bake homemade pizza :-) I knead the dough, my husband rolls it out and our child puts the stuffing. Of course you can buy a ready-baked pizza almost everywhere (especially here in Italy), but believe me, a homemade one tastes completely different. And it's so easy to make! We have tried many recipes for pizza dough and finally we have chosen our favorite one (it was given to us by a pizza chef Pino - a childhood friend of my husband). So, open the flour, take a rolling pin and make this delicious pizza for your family :-)

Here is one of our favorite recipes - a creamy rice and salami soup with cheese triangles :-)

Potato cutlets with peas filling (Ukrainian potato zrazy)

Potato zrazy is a popular Ukrainian dish. They are made with potato puree and can be filled with minced meat, mushrooms or mashed peas. When I was a child my mum and granny used to cook them very often and now I make them for my family (my Italian husband just adores this dish), zrazy are very quick and easy to make, you'll need only few simple and cheap ingredients and the result will surprise you:-) Zrazy are traditionally served with some sour cream or tomato sauce. Here is the recipe of my favorite zrazy with mashed peas filling.
