Have you tried the pizza recipe in the book, “Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day”. It was so good and your authentic pizza sounds very similar. Living in a rural area I have to try to make the things I crave or want to try myself as we don’t have many restaurants to choose from.
I love fermented food but have yet to try Kimchi, I’ve heard too many jokes about it and can’t work up the courage!
Try first a ‘fresh kimchee’ recipe; do a web search. It doesn’t involve the fermentation, but you can get an idea of what it tastes like.
Fermented Kimchee has the value that it carries the kind of gut-goodies that yogurt, or sauerkraut, do.
(The Ethiopian bread ‘Injera’, made from Teff, has similar goodies.)
