Warm water, 200 ml

Egg yolk, 2

Mini Pizza Dough hints and tricks
Dough should not stick to hands, and this is how you check upon it. As soon as it COMPLETELY falls down and nothing left on fingers, then stop (over-doing may ruin the whole idea)

Combine warm water with yeast and sugar. Stir well until yeast dissolved. Set aside for about 5 minutes.

Add salt, milk and vegetable oil. Mix it well.

Add 500 g of flour to the yeast/water mixture and mix well.

Continue adding flour until a soft dough forms. Knead until the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl. Cover and set aside for about 20 min.

Meanwhile cut olives and pancetta in a very small cubes and mix them in one bowl.

Take from the dough small pieces ( a little bit bigger than a walnut), shape round mini pizzas by your fingers. Let them rise for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile beat egg yolks. Brush each mini pizza with yolk, them spread tomato sauce and put the filling (at about 1 tsp) in the center of each mini pizza.

Bake in the oven, 180-200 C, approx. 10 minutes or until brown.

Enjoy!
