  1. 1.
    In a small bowl, combine warm water and sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then sprinkle the yeast over the water. Let it sit for 5 minutes until foamy.
  2. 2.
    In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the yeast mixture and olive oil. Stir until a dough forms.
  3. 3.
    Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise for 1-2 hours until doubled in size.
  4. 4.
    Preheat the oven to 230°C (450°F). Punch down the dough and divide it into two equal portions. Roll out each portion into a thin circle.
  5. 5.
    Place the rolled-out dough on a baking sheet or pizza stone. Spread tomato sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges.
  6. 6.
    Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce, followed by black olives, bell peppers, onions, and Brazilian sausage.
  7. 7.
    Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly and slightly browned.
  8. 8.
    Remove from the oven and garnish with fresh basil leaves. Slice and serve hot.

Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Tomato sauce — Use a high-quality tomato sauce or make your own by blending fresh tomatoes with garlic, olive oil, and herbs for a burst of flavor.
  • Brazilian sausage — Look for linguica or calabresa sausage, which are commonly used in Brazilian cuisine. If unavailable, you can substitute with spicy Italian sausage.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a crispier crust, preheat your baking sheet or pizza stone in the oven before placing the rolled-out dough on it.
  • Experiment with different Brazilian toppings such as palm hearts, catupiry cheese, or even feijoada leftovers for a unique twist.
  • If you prefer a spicier pizza, add some sliced jalapenos or drizzle hot sauce over the toppings before baking.
  • To enhance the flavor, brush the crust with garlic-infused olive oil before baking.
  • Leftover pizza can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and reheated in the oven or microwave.

Serving advice

Serve the Brazilian-style New York pizza hot, straight from the oven. Cut it into slices and enjoy it as a main course or share it as a delicious appetizer during gatherings with friends and family.

Presentation advice

For an authentic Brazilian touch, garnish the pizza with fresh basil leaves and a drizzle of olive oil before serving. The vibrant colors of the toppings will make the pizza visually appealing and irresistible.
