ingredients

Flour
500 g
Extra-virgin olive oil
60 g, Italian variety
water
250 ml
Cheese
800 g, fresh (i.g. stracchino)

Preparation

Knead the ingredients until the dough is soft and smooth. Let it rise for at least 30 minutes at room temperature, covered with a cloth made of natural fibers.

Take the dough and stretch it by hand with a twisting motion (with your hands under the dough) until it is less than a millimeter thick.

Make sure to not create holes. You must be able to see your knuckles underneath it, as if under a handkerchief.

The base is then stuffed with cheese, and an even thinner sheet of dough is placed on top.

Seal the edges and brush it with oil, then bake for 15 minutes at 300° C.
