We mix the flour with the yeast and add half a teaspoon of salt. Little by little we add the oil and the water and milk mixture. We knead until obtaining a compact dough that does not stick to the fingers. Let it rest for 30 minutes in a cool place.
We drain the cottage cheese well by placing it on a colander. We cut the cherry tomatoes and, as we do with the cottage cheese, we let their juices drain in a colander. We chop the mozzarella and dry it well with absorbent paper.
We mix the cottage cheese and the mozzarella. Add half the egg (beaten) and the drained cherry tomatoes. Season to taste with salt, pepper and oregano.
We divide the dough in two and stretch into a circle . Better if we work on greaseproof paper because that way it will be easier to transfer the pizzas to the oven tray.
We spread the filling in one half . Sprinkle with the grated Parmesan cheese on top. Fold the empty half over the filling and seal the edges by moistening them with a little water or beaten egg or by folding them on themselves. We paint the entire surface with the rest of the egg. We repeat the operation with the other half of the dough and filling.
We transfer the pizzas to a baking tray. We introduce it in the lower part of the oven and cook the pizzas for 20 minutes (oven preheated to 220 ºC) or until they are golden brown. We serve immediately.
