Homemade veggie pizzas

The glorious weather which lasted all week disappeared on us as soon as Saturday morning appeared.   Still, neither of us wanted a big lunch.  I had bought a pack of pizza flour from a deli nearby a few weeks ago and decided to put it to good use.   I made two types of pizza:

  • aubergine, mozzarella and mushroom
  • courgette, yellow pepper, tomato, mozzarella and mushroom

The recipe for the base is an easy one:

Ingredients: (makes 2)

  • 250g flour, plus extra for dusting
  • a pinch of salt
  • 7g instant yeast
  • 160ml tepid water
  • a pinch of sugar

Method:

  1. Mix flour and salt in a bowl
  2. In a glass, mix the yeast with water and sugar and leave for 5 minutes
  3. Make a well in the bowl and gradually add the yeast.  Work the flour mix until it forms a dough
  4. Knead the dough for 2 to 3 minutes, cover the bowl with kitchen towel for 30 minutes to leave the dough to rise
  5. After 20 minutes, lightly knead the dough and cut into 2
  6. Set the oven grill on at 200 degrees
  7. Dust the countertop with flour and roll out the dough into a thin circle, as small or big as you like
  8. Transfer the dough to a pizza tray and cover with your favourite toppings
  9. Grill for 15 minutes, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper before serving
