Genuinea Italiana Pizza LillaBit…

Definitely authentic Italian Pizza… with ‘show’ in the preparation.

I love it! I’m feeling like an Italian kid already…

    Fun video and yummy. I know those flavor mixtures and proportions. I’ve never really been into making pizza dough, so that was the very interesting part to me.

    Since it was closed captioned, I watched. It was a bit long at 35 minutes because she went through everything for each of the 4 pizzas.

    I was going to fast forward to the next step after she had done each step on the first of the 4 pizzas, but I watched the whole thing start to finish because of the voice to text cc, and the voice language was English.

    It didn’t take long into the video when the WT?!?!? amazement (and amusement) started.

    For example, I think in only one or two places, dough came out as dough. The rest of the time it was displayed as dog. Then there was ISIS a few times and at least on Mohammed all while she’s making the sign of the cross and asking God’s blessing. I had no clue as to what she was saying with an obvious, immigrant Italian accent, and of course her syntax was a bit mangled.

    So the video was great and can be easily followed without sound. But the cc… oh my! It was a hoot and definitely not ready for prime time. That program *ahem* “needs some work.”

    She says “an a lilabit a this” a lot. Speaking English with a heavy Italian accent.
    Kind of like an over the top version of “Ma” in Golden Girls.

    Oh man! You gotta play the video for a few minutes just to see the cc. Maybe skip to a few minutes at the end. That’s where the Isis and Mohammed popped up.

    I finished a video at, I believe WUWT, and at the end, where the screen splits into 4 windows with suggested follow-on videos, this popped up.

    I was out and about today so I went ahead and snagged the two ingredients; plain Greek yogurt and self-rising flour, neither of which we have had around the house in years.

    I’m going to give this one a shot.

    Oh, the video is a little over 12 minutes, and except for the first few minutes where he does the crust, you can fast forward through a lot to get to his cooking time/temperature.

    I tried the two ingredient pizza crust tonight. It is a good crust. Depending on your taste preference, you might want to consider adding the tsp of sugar he recommends if you like a sweeter crust.

    Supposedly, the recipe makes a 12″ pizza and he says to double the recipe for a 14″ pizza.

    I have a 16″ pizza pan so I made a 1-1/2 batch (1.5 c. yogurt, 2.25 c. flour) looking to make a thin crust pizza. It came out medium. Next time, I’ll use a single batch and stretch it really thin.

    I’ll try again. I’ve paid money to pizza places and have had worse, and that goes for several chains.

    This was quite good. Not the best I’ve ever had, but very good. It’s what you’d expect from a competent pizzeria. The sugar might help, depending on what your favorite crust tastes like. I might try a 1/2 tsp.

    Doh! (Dough!) Now I know what the difference is between this and traditional crusts. The yeast risen gives a slightly airier texture to traditional dough. This one is more like a New York style crust, smooth and stretchy, in which case, it stacks up pretty well to NY style pizza.

    Self rising flour is nice, but not everyone has it. You can use All Purpose and add baking powder as a reasonable substitute. No yogurt? Use the same volume of milk with about 1 Tbls or 15 ml vinegar per cup (240 ml).

    I haven’t made pizza in a while. I have salami and cheese…. hmmm….
