Mr P. and I have been to New Zealand half a dozen times, and always love it. The countryside is gorgeous, and the people so interesting and friendly. And there's always the hope that a hobbit will pop up somewhere. Oh, and they have weird and wonderful foods too that you won't find here. We came upon rhubarb sparkling water for instance! And delicious local crayfish, and abalone. And local honey, and fabulous breads, and and...
|I guess that's an orc:=)|
I have been making a baking soda pizza dough for years, but it is always a little salty/soda-y even when I add herbs and parmesan to it, so I was glad to see that Annabel has come up with this 2-ingredient dough for pizza.
So - easy peasy lemon squeezy, here it is:
Take 2 cups of self-raising flour to 2 cups of thick Greek style yoghurt - you get the idea; you can double it if you need to; just equal quantities of flour to yoghurt.
Add 1 tsp of salt and mix to a soft dough - it is very soft and sticky so use a rubber spatula or a knife to mix it in (don't be tempted to add more yoghurt here; it will be enough)
Press it (with very well-floured hands) onto a piece of lightly floured baking paper
Pre-heat a round or rectangular baking tray in the oven at 220C
Now cover your dough in whatever you fancy: you could use a tomato sauce or do as I did, mix 120g. of ricotta with 1/2 tsp hot chipotle sauce and spread over the base
I then added:
100g. prosciutto cut into strips
1/2 dozen cherry tomatoes, halved - (on Mr P.'s side of the pizza)
8 bocconcini, halved
1/2 small potato, very finely sliced
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp chopped rosemary (less or more as you fancy)
3-4 tbs parmesan, grated
Grab the heated tray from the oven and slide the pizza AND the baking paper onto the tray - carefully!
Bake for about 20 minutes till golden and delicious - you will know what that looks like:=)
Make sure your hands are very well-floured, and cast more over your hands and the dough if you need to
Press out the dough till it is very thin - no more than half a centimetre
Make sure the tray is hot before placing the pizza on it
You will have more than enough for one big pizza so either freeze the rest or make another small pizza, or do as Annabel suggests, and make several small dinner plate sized pizzas. She suggests this will make at least 4.
