Pizza bases

Can anyone suggest where I can by Pizza bases in the Zurich area. In UK i used to buy and stick in frezzer! They were great to drag out at last minute and add any topping that is fancied at the time. I have searched shops in local area and can not find any. I am sure that making my own base is easy enough but pizza bases are even easier. Cheers

Migros, Co-op: In the chiller cabinets, in little plastic-wrapped rolls.

Re: Pizza bases

The rolls from Buitoni (or any of the pre-flattened for that matter) are not that great, if you ask me. Pizza tends to come out a bit too hard for my taste. Plus they are outrageously expensive.

My favourite pizza dough is the one in lumps you get from Migros. They also have the whole wheat type. It takes a bit more effort to flatten it, but the resulting pizza is much much better.
Give it a try.

Re: Pizza bases

We buy the fresh dough from the bakery (Sutters) and either use it as is or freeze it for later. Makes great pizzas!

Coop do an organic pizza base which the HTD household swears by.

Re: Pizza bases

Aldi do a pack of 3 margerita thin crust pizzas for under 6chfs. They have enough cheese and go in the freezer, I just add whatever toppings I desire before I pop them in the oven.

Re: Pizza bases

This just proves that I am not looking very hard. Sounds like they have been under my nose the whole time.

Thanks everyone for your help. xx

Re: Pizza bases

We have a bread machine which has a pizza dough setting - this takes about 45 minutes to make pizza dough.

Often I make more than we need and freeze the rest. If we plan to have pizza on an evening, I just remember to take the dough out of the freezer in the morning and put it in the fridge to thaw. We have pizza on Fridays so often I set the program going as soon as I get home then we go to Migros and do our weekly shop. The dough is ready by the time we return home.

Otherwise, for 4 pizzas, in a bowl place 450g dinkel (spelt) flour, 1 sachet easy-blend yeast, a few lugs of olive oil, a teaspoon of salt. Make a well and add 225ml lukewarm water. Mix to a smooth dough and knead for 5-10 minutes. Allow to rise for half an hour then knock back. You can now roll out your pizzas. Tip: to stop the rolled-put dough getting soggy from the topping, brush a layer of olive oil over.

For tomato toppings we use passata - comes in bottles in Migros.

HTH,
Nick

Re: Pizza bases

Thanks very much for that. I think I will try buying bases first and see how I get on. Otherwise I can imagine my 17 month daughter needing attention whilst i'm elbow high in dough.

Best pizza ever: mexican sauce (basic tomato paste with crushed chillies & a few spices mixed through it), topped with salami, ground beef, onion, capsicum, jalapenos, pineapple & banana... with heaps of cheese...

Fruit goes anywhere... any time...
