1 baking stone
1 baking tray

- 4: is dry baker’s or 12 g of fresh yeast
- 10:00 is of the hall
- 15:00 is extra virgin olive oil
- 300 is from cold water.
- 1/4 green chilli and another 1/4 red chilli.

- 100 is cod, desalinated, cooked and crushed
- 3: cda: extra virgin olive oil
- 100 is tomato passata

- pinch oregano
- 200 is mozzarella (or other cheese that melts well)
- 4 or 5 the leaves fresh basil
Cut the spring onion and pepper into julienne strips and fry in olive oil in a pan, season with salt and pepper. It should be a little “al dente”, let’s add the tomato passata and the ground and chopped cod. Let it cool
Put the flour in a bowl, add the yeast, half of the water, mix with a baker’s grater, add the rest of the water and continue mixing.
Add the salt and continue kneading. Put the dough on the counter and knead vigorously.
Add the oil and knead until combined. Roll the dough and let it rest for 10 minutes.Restore the dough, knead and fold for 5-7 minutes.
Let it stand for 10 minutes. We restore the dough again, knead it a little and divide it into two balls of the same size.
Grease two plastic bags with a little oil, place balls of dough in each bag, seal and refrigerate for at least 24 hours (can be as long as 2 to 5 days).
After 24 hours, you can make 2 pizzas, or if, like me, you only make one, slightly degas the other one and store it in the fridge.
Turn on the oven to 250º, heating up and down, and place a baking stone in it. (use your baking tray if you don’t have one)
Turn over the pizza dough to be prepared, knead it lightly and stretch it first with your fingertips and then with your fists.
Place the dough on parchment paper, cover with sauce, mozzarella and oregano and place in the oven heated to 250 degrees. At this point, place a tray under the stone and add a glass of water to create steam.
Bake for 18-20 minutes (depending on the oven)
When the pizza is out of the oven, drizzle with a thin stream of olive oil and sprinkle with fresh basil.
What tomato sauce to use on a Portuguese cod pizza?
You can use the tomato sauce that you like the most, lately I’ve been using PASSATA sauce (from Mutti) and I like it because it “wets” the dough a little and that helps. This sauce is sold in all major stores (CARREFOUR, ALCAMPO, EL CORTE INGLÉS)
What cheese to use for this Portuguese pizza recipe?
If you prefer to use mozzarella, because it is a cheese with a lot of water, you can put it in at the same time as the sauce, so you will have time for the water to evaporate. If it is a cheese like Tetila that melts so quickly, it is better to put it a few minutes before the end of baking. Here you can see how to prepare and stretch the pizza dough in the video: If you’re in a hurry and can’t afford the time needed to prepare a cold dough, I invite you to see THIS RECIPE dough in 30 minutes.
