When the film crew was here and recorded my web show, The Swedish Coffee Maker Chef, there was no time to cook pizza from scratch. Well, maybe there was but I think it’s boring to prepare the dough from scratch so we bought a pre-cooked dough that came with salsa as well. I have coffee maker cooked pizzas a couple of times before and I will post one of those recipes after this clip, and then you can choose how you would like to cook your pizza.
Haha! The team was at our house (in Gothenburg instead of a studio in Stockholm) and filmed partly because of the cats. They are a big part of this blog and of course they should be a part of the web show as well. I started to regret this deal the morning the crew came due to the fact that Zappa was extremely poor in his little stomach and had the diarrhea from hell. Sphynx cats get this relatively easy and the smell is absolutely horrifying. Just when we started filming one of the guys in the crew started to giggle a lot and I got interrupted and asked him why he giggled. Then I saw it… The skid marks on our new, white carpet! And the diarrhea smell! Zappa came out from the toilet, sat down and wiped his shitty ass on our carpet in front of this giggling guy on the sofa. Kind of embarrassing, but I felt sorry for Zappa and his itching anus. And too bad they didn’t caught it on tape.
But this isn’t a post about cat diarrhea but about pizzas. And this is how you cook a pizza with your coffee maker.
Approximately 3 hours for one mini pizza
It’s hard to write an exact recipe for a mini pizza, it such small amounts. The dough is a recipe for a large pizza, which you may divide into smaller pieces. It is also possible to freeze the pizza dough.
Pizza dough (for many mini pizzas)
50 g yeast
1 teaspoon salt (preferably sea salt flavored with rosemary)
A pinch of sugar
3 dl water
0.5 ml olive oil
9 dl flour
Tomato sauce (also very small amounts)
Frozen herb mixture
Topping (for two or three mini pizzas)
½ small onion
1 can of tuna
1 tsp Mango Chutney
Mix the yeast, salt, sugar, oil and lukewarm water in a bowl. Stir it so that it blends properly. Stir in about 8 dl flour (a little at a time) so that the dough becomes smooth. Prover the dough in the bowl under a cloth in a half hour. Take a piece of dough, about the size of a golf ball, and knead it thoroughly on a floured surface. Add more flour if dough is too sticky. Flatten this properly and shape it so that it fits the heater.
Like a professional! ;)
Start the coffee maker. Pour a small amount of oil directly on the heater, and heat it properly – about 10 minutes. Place the thin pizza crust on the heater and bake it for about fifteen minutes on both sides, or until it has a nice color and are no longer doughy. Remove the pizza crust and clean the heater.
Pour a dash of oil in the carafe and heat it for about 15 minutes. Chop the onion in the meantime and fry all of it in the coffee maker carafe for about 25 minutes.
Now it’s time to prepare the tomato sauce! Mix in a little tomato puree along with the passed tomatoes and season with pepper and herb mix. Stir. Easy peasy! Mix tuna, mango chutney, curry and cheese (or whatever you like to have on your pizza) in the carafe along with the onion. Fry this in the coffee carafe for half an hour. Stir occasionally. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off your coffee maker.
Carafe-fry the topping.
Spread a layer of tomato sauce on the pizza crust and after that add tuna topping. Sprinkle the pizza spice and peanuts over your fantastic meal. Serve with a fresh salad and a cold beer. Omnomnomnom.
