Pizza 4

Album '4' Beyonce 2011

Chosen because it's growing on me, especially 'Start Over'.

Serves 2 hungry people passionate about cheese, or 4 not fussed and will have a slice because it's there.


Make the pizza dough with 600g strong organic bread flour
packet of dried yeast
300ml warm water

Whisk the yeast in the water, and put to one side for 15 minutes.

Then add to the flour and knead for 5 minutes.

Cover with a damp towel in a warm dark place until it has doubled (30 minutes)

Oven on 190°c

Prepare the toppings....

chop half an onion
grate cheddar
slice mozzarella
chop some sundried tomatoes
find the chilli flakes and tomato puree
take the jar of red onion pickle out the fridge

Once bread has doubled, cut in two and roll one out.

Use the other for spare bread and pop in a loaf tin.

With the other roll out and spread out on a pizza tray or large flat baking tray.

1.Spread tomato puree

2.Sprinkle chilli flakes

3.Spread chopped onion

4.Parmesan on top on one side

5.Then Mozzarella in the middle

6.And Cheddar at the end

7.Sundried tomatoes

8.A few dollops of pickle

9.Bake for 30 minutes

10.Drizzle with olive oil before serving.

Bake the other loaf on the bottom shelf for 30minutes and use for your sandwiches or toast tomorrow.

The pickle with melted cheese combo was intense, a slice of this tasted like an indulgent cheese on toast.

I hope you enjoy it, the flavours go well together. The pickle in the photo might put you off but you can make it without.
