Ron’s Pizza Hack - My Italian answer to the Tortilla Hack.
In the past few weeks you could hardly avoid this «cooking trend» on social media. I must have watched about 100 different videos about this food hack and of course, i tried it myself. And yes, it definitely does taste good. But…
Have you tried the Italian version? If you are also a pizza lover like me, give this very simple recipe try. You can fill the «pizza» with your favourite pizza toppings or even just whatever is leftover in the fridge.
An Italian friend's mom let me in on this secret a few years ago.
For a typical, classic pizza sauce, Italians prefer to use whole canned tomatoes, mainly because they have already been cooked. The most aromatic and sweetest tomatoes are those harvested during the classic/natural harvest period - mid-July to early September - and processed into canned tomatoes immediately afterwards. The date of processing (and even the time) is printed on each can. Therefore, the next time you go shopping, make sure that the number - usually above the best-before date - is between 190 and 250!
Mix all the sauce ingredients carefully with a hand blender - it only needs a few and short pulses, otherwise the sauce will be too watery. Also, make sure it doesn't get frothy. Alternatively, you can just use a fork to mash the ingredients together in a bowl.
Preparation Pizza Hack.
Preheat the oven to 220 degrees. (mine is «vintage» so lacks convection,) Roll out the dough and make a straight cut from the center of the dough to the outside with a kitchen knife.
Cover the first quarter of the pizza with the sauce and olives. Make sure that you always leave a little margin towards the outer part.
Now carefully close the edges of your pizza so that none of the topping can run out, transfer your work to a baking tray covered with baking paper, put it into the oven and bake it for at least 20 minutes (depending on the oven).
After that, it should look something like this and, most importantly, smell fantastic
If you are fond of baguettes but find the traditional European fillings a bit dull, (ham and cheese. BORING!) then maybe the Bánh Mì 136 pop-up at Lang has just the thing for you. The «baguettes» are filled with delicious fillings

I am looking for a drawing class.
When living in Lausanne, I used to attend classes where I mainly used pencil & charcoal and drew nude models.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a similar class in Zürich?

I am a volunteer at PAFI, a small foundation in Switzerland that supports 200 children from an underprivileged community in Brazil to go to school and eat a warm meal per day. Recently, we fulfilled the children's dream of a sports field. To complete the project, install plumbing and buy sport equipment we are looking for some additional funding. Because we don't have any administrative costs, every cent benefits the children directly. Here is the link to the project: https://www.crowdify.net/de/projekt/sport-pausenplatz
Does anyone know organisations and foundations in Switzerland that we could contact to supporting our project?
