Pasta Dough!

pastaPic by Franzi.

Home-made pasta? Yes! Now I also have a pasta maker and prepared my very first batch of pasta with it. It took me quite a while to understand the machine (maybe I will give an introduction in a later post), but the result was delicious. Here’s how I made the dough…

Recipe: Makes 450 g.

Ingredients: 300 g fine wheat flour, 3 eggs, 1TblSp olive oil.


Gently mix the flour, eggs and olive oil until a homogenous texture is reached. Knead for 5 to 8 additional minutes (I used the kitchen machine) until the dough is smooth. Wrap the dough in cling film and let rest for 1 hour. Roll out to prepare lasagna plates or the pasta form of your wishes (I used a pasta maker). Use the pasta immediately or let dry and freeze it.

Pizza with Figs, Gorgonzola and Rosemary

This post will remember you on two previous ones in the Taste category: Pizza Dough and Delicious Fig Recipes. Both, pizza as well as figs, you find on a regular basis on my plate. So, it is only logical that sometimes they both come together in one dish. And I promise you this liaison is a delicious one – especially when hearty gorgonzola and aromatic rosemary top it off.


1 packet ready-made pizza dough or home-made pizza-dough (dry yeast, olive oil, flour, salt, water, sugar), 250ml sour cream, 4-5 figs, 125g Gorgonzola, 1-2 rosemary sprigs, salt and pepper, 1 few drops of good olive oil.


Roll out the pizza dough on baking plate. Spread the dough with the sour crème, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Slice the figs and put them onto the dough, add blobs of Gorgonzola and the rosemary. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and olive oil.

Bake the pizza for about 30-35min at 200°C.
