Ingredients
Dough
  • 8.8 oz (250 g) all purpose flour
  • 0.1 oz (3 g) instant dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 0.6 cup (155) ml warm water
Filling
  • 7 oz (200 g) sausage
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 0.8 cup (200 ml) tomato puree
  • pinch of chili powder
You will also need
  • 1 egg

  1. For the dough, combine all ingredients and knead until dough forms. Cover with kitchen towel and let double in size. Knead it again and roll out onto floured surface. Cut out circles.
