In Italy, baking has a long and storied history. The country's Mediterranean climate and abundant natural resources have made it a perfect place for growing wheat, fruits, and nuts. This has led to the development of a rich and varied baking tradition that is still enjoyed today.

One of the most distinctive features of Italian baking is its use of sourdough. Sourdough is a type of fermented dough that is made with a mixture of flour, water, and wild yeast. It has a slightly sour flavor and a chewy texture that is unique to Italian bread.

Another important ingredient in Italian baking is olive oil. Olive oil is used to add flavor and moisture to doughs and pastries. It also helps to keep baked goods fresh for longer.

Some of the most popular Italian baked goods include:

  • Pizza: A flatbread that is topped with tomato sauce, cheese, and various other toppings.
  • Pasta: A type of noodle that is made from durum wheat flour and water.
  • Bread: A type of food that is made from flour, water, and yeast.
  • Pastry: A type of food that is made from flour, butter, and sugar.

Italian baking has had a major impact on the world's culinary landscape. Italian bakers have brought their skills and traditions to every corner of the globe. Today, Italian baked goods can be found in bakeries and restaurants all over the world.

If you are looking for a delicious and authentic way to experience Italian culture, then be sure to try some of the country's traditional baked goods.

Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 5-7 minutes, or until it becomes smooth and elastic. 4. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until it has doubled in size. 5. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. 6. On a lightly floured surface, stretch or roll out the dough into a 12-inch circle. 7. Transfer the dough to a baking sheet and spread the tomato sauce over it. 8.
