Argentinian Fugazza Recipe!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Rise Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 10 minutes
Servings 1 loaf


For the Dough

  • 1 Cup Warm Water
  • 1 Tsp Sugar
  • 2 Tsp Instant Yeast
  • 2 ⅔ Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tsp Salt

For the Toppings

  • 1 Large onion (or 2 medium onions)
  • 2 Tsp Oregano
  • 2 Cups Shredded Mozarella


  • In a bowl, combine all purpose flour, sugar, instant yeast and salt. Add in the warm water and ¼ cup olive oil and combine until a shaggy dough forms. 
  • Transfer to a flat surface and knead for 5-7 minutes, until a smooth and elastic dough forms. If you find the dough to be too wet, add more flour 1 tbsp at a time, and if you find it to be too dry/crumbly, add more water 1 tbsp at a time
  • Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and allow to rise for 1 – 1 ½ hours or until doubled in size. 
  • In the meantime, slice up your onions into very thin strips and place in cold salted water for 30 minutes before draining and patting fully dry. 
  • Preheat your oven to 450 F. Once the dough has risen, spread you 2 tbsp of olive oil onto a 14 inch pizza pan, 13 inch sheet pan, or any wide oven safe dish you have on hand and place your dough on top. 
  • Start to flatten your dough and spread it with your fingers to the sides of your dish. If you’re having trouble stretching it out, wait 5 minutes for the dough to relax in between. Continue till your dough is thin and covers your entire baking dish.
  • Top with your onions, oregano and optionally a drizzle of olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes before removing from the oven, topping with your cheese and baking for another 5 minutes. Slice and enjoy!!
