It’s March in Ireland which means it’s now five months in a row of grey, cold, storm, and even more rain than usual. It’s depressing.
Even more so since my last trip was ages ago!
Do you know what helps when the situation is dire?
Good food and maybe some wine.
Well, we had homemade pizza and wine yesterday, but the positive impact on the mood didn’t last long.
So, what now?
When you create pizza dough 9 out of 10 times, you intend to make a pizza.
Now is the tenth time, and we’re creating something sweet!
I’m unsure if there’s an official name for it, so Veronica called them Fagottini alla Nutella.
No idea what it means, but it sounds as tasty as they are!
Put 170-180 ml of lukewarm water in a large glass, add a teaspoon of sugar, a teaspoon of olive oil, and one bag of fast action yeast (7gr).
Stir a bit and let it sit for a few minutes.
Put 250gr of flour and a teaspoon of salt in a mixer bowl, and add the content of the glass.
I used my KitchenAid mixer and let it do its job for a few minutes.
Remove the bowl from the mixer, put some cling film on top of it, and let it sit for an hour.
Now is a good time to preheat your oven to its max, usually 240-250 degrees Celsius, and probably some insane number in Fahrenheit. I’m too lazy to google it right now, sorry!
While the oven is heating up, be maximal creative in taking some parts of the dough and pressing it a little flat.
Don’t roll it out; it’s no pizza!
Put some Nutella and shredded hazelnut on top and fold together like a bread roll.
Now put them into the oven and watch them!
Depending on their thickness, they need anywhere between 5-10 minutes.
They should look like this:
For additional indulgence, you can put some cocoa powder on top:
That’s eat, I mean, that’s it!
And at least for today, my mood is perfect!
I’m just not sure how long it will last. 🙂
