Home-made white tuna and piquillo pepper pizza

A home-made pizza is one of those gastronomic pleasures that no one can resist. The flavour and texture of a home-made dough is a delicacy… and if you add such lovely ingredients as those in this recipe by Sara, success is more than guaranteed.


  • Tomato sauce
  • Sliced cheese
  • White Tuna
  • Piquillo peppers
  • Boiled egg
  • Oregano
  • Mozzarella
  • For the dough
    • Flour – 350 g
    • Water – 200 ml
    • Fresh yeast – 15 g
    • Olive oil – 3 tbsp
    • Salt – 1/2 tsp


  1. Prepare the dough:
    1. In a bowl place the flour with the salt and make a hole in the middle.
    2. Dissolve the yeast in 125 ml of warm water. Leave to rest for approximately 10 minutes.
    3. Pour the water and yeast mixture into the hole made earlier in the flour.
    4. Mix well for a few minutes and add the rest of the cold water and the oil.
    5. Continue mixing until you have a smooth dough that does not stick to your hands.
    6. Place the dough in a bowl sprinkled with flour and cover with a clean cloth until it doubles in volume (around 25 minutes).
    7. Put the dough on a surface sprinkled with flour and flatten it with the rolling pin until it has the desired shape.
  2. Spread the tomato sauce (even better if you have some home-made tomato sauce).
  3. Add the sliced cheese.
  4. Add the tuna after rinsing away the oil.
  5. Cut the peppers into thin strips and place on top of the pizza.
  6. Spread the chopped boiled egg over it.
  7. Sprinkle some oregano over it.
  8. Add the mozzarella.
  9. First cook it at the top of the oven at 180º and then move it down to finish cooking it.
  10. Ready to be enjoyed!

Home-made and with a taste of the sea, thanks Sara!
