How to prepare No-Knead Pizza

To prepare the no-knead pizza, pour the flours into a large bowl 1. Add the water 2 and the crumbled active dry yeast 3

Mix well with a wooden spoon 4 until you get a homogeneous and soft dough 5. Let it rest for 10 minutes, then add the oil 6

Also add the salt and mix again with the wooden spoon until you get a smooth and homogeneous mixture 9. Cover the dough with plastic wrap 9 and let it rise at room temperature for 3 hours. The most suitable temperature would be around 77-81°F.

After the resting time, the dough will have doubled 10. Grease a 16x12 inch baking pan and transfer the dough inside 11. Gently press the dough and stretch it by hand 12. Do not worry if you cannot cover the entire pan.

Let the dough rest in the pan for 10 minutes, then stretch it further with your fingertips until it covers the entire surface of the pan 13. Season the tomato sauce with salt and oil 14. Pour it over the pizza base, leaving a couple of centimeters (about an inch) free from the edge 15. Let it rest again for 30 minutes away from drafts. 

After the resting time, place the previously washed and halved cherry tomatoes on the surface of the pizza, pressing them lightly 16. Also add some capers 17 and a drizzle of oil 18

Bake in a preheated static oven at 430°F for 25 minutes 19. Then take it out of the oven and sprinkle the pizza with the grated provola cheese 20. Bake for another 5 minutes until the cheese has melted. Remove from the oven and decorate with Taggiasca olives and basil. The no-knead pizza is ready; enjoy it hot!
