I’m not very fond of eating pizzas. But about a year ago I discovered a real Italian pizzeria in Malasaña. So once a month I call L’isola bella and ask me one. Always ask for vegetables, but the other day I decided to change and ask the four cheese, was delicious.
I think the secret of this pizzeria is because the chef is really an Italian master. The pizza dough is thin, but thick enough to be able to eat it without getting dirty.
I am trying to discover the secret ingredients that make this place the busiest of Madrid.
As I’m sure the chef will not give me the ingredients of the delicious four cheese pizza I ordered the other day. So I decided to imagine them.
After making the pizza, would look like this photo. And of course be delicious.
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 8 roman tomatoes, sliced
- 2 12-inch pre-baked pizza crusts
- 4 ounces shredded fontina cheese
- 8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 10 fresh basil leaves, washed and dried
- Stir the olive oil, garlic and salt together in a medium bowl and toss the mixture with the sliced tomatoes, then leave it to stand for a period of 15 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Brush both pizza bases with the tomato marinade you prepared in step 1 and drizzle them with fontina and mozzarella cheese, then position the tomato slices on top.
- Sprinkle the crumbled feta cheese, the grated parmesan cheese and the basil leaves over the pizza.
- Place the pizzas in the preheated oven and bake them for 10 minutes.
-You will know the pizzas are done when the cheese begins to bubble and turns a warm, golden brown color
