Recipe for Pizza Calabria with Spianata Calabrese Piccante. A delicious specialty with Italian salami from Calabria. As the Piccante suggests in the name of the salami, the Spianata Calabrese Piccante contains 5 to 10 percent of spicy Calabrian chili. The chili variety is the "Calabrese Piccante", a round, medium-caliber Chili from Calabria. One of my favorite pizza toppings, just delicious!
First shape the pizza dough into a round and thin pizza with your hands. Rolling out the dough with a rolling pin should be avoided. By rolling out the dough, the pizza is less airy and does not bake properly. You can find a recipe for an original Italian pizza dough here.
Spread the pizza with tomato sauce and season to taste with Italian herbs. Add some finely chopped garlic to taste.
Cut the mozzarella into thin slices and spread on the pizza.
Cut the calabrian chillies into fine rings and spread on the pizza. Alternatively, other chillies or chilli powder can be used.
After that, cut the Spianata Calabrese Piccante into thin slices and add it too.
Place in the oven - preheated to the highest temperature - and bake for about 5 to 12 minutes. The baking time depends on the temperature and the use of a pizza stone or pizza steel. Here is a guide to pizza baking at home.
After baking garnish with a few fresh basil leaves and serve hot.
