Fugazzeta Pizza

If you are a cheese lover, this pizza will become the number one of your pizzas and Buenos Aires (Argentina) will become a mandatory culinary destination to visit!

Hello everyone, today we will prepare our version of the Fugazetta Argentina!


1000gr of strength wheat flour

550 ml of water

30gr of fresh yeast

15gr of fine salt

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp of sugar

For each pizza:

2 or 3 onions

Pepper to taste

oregano to taste

200 to 300g of mozarella cheese


Start by activating the yeast. For this, take a cup of lukewarm water and add the fresh yeast, stir well until dissolved and then add the sugar and a tablespoon of flour. Mix well until smooth and let it sit for 10 minutes or until foamy.

In a large bowl, place the flour and add the salt around the edges, avoiding direct contact with the yeast, as it can deactivate it. Add the oil, yeast and the rest of the water. Begin mixing until a dough forms.

Knead the dough for 10 minutes. Grease a bowl, place the dough, cover it and let it rest for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, start by cutting the onions into thin julienne strips and the mozzarella cheese into cubes.

Sauté the onion a little to reduce the amount of water and thus prevent the pizza from becoming mushy.

Now take your dough and divide it according to the number of pizzas you are going to make. Remember that each pizza has a base that needs a larger ball of dough, and a lid that has to be a smaller ball to make it thinner.

Now with the help of a pizza tray, stretch the base of the dough until it reaches the edges and rise between 1 and 2 centimeters. If when you stretch the dough, you feel a lot of resistance and the dough comes back, let it rest for 10 minutes and continue again.

Fill the pizza with all the mozzarella cheese you want and now cover with the lid, stretching it slowly to prevent it from breaking. Add onion on top and take it to the oven or grill over indirect heat for 20 minutes at 200 gr.

With a knife, make a few small cuts to the top of the pizza to let the steam escape, add grate Parmesan cheese and mozzarella over the onion. Now, to finish it, turn it over with the help of a plate and put it back on the fire for 2-3 minutes and remove!

Add a drizzle of olive oil, sprinkle pepper and oregano and enjoy .. Remember that you can make them filled with more things, such as ham, salami, pepperoni, etc.

I hope you enjoyed this as much as we did eating it.
