Homemade pizza with mozzarella, tomato, silverbeet and garden herbs
Ingredients (this should make 3 pizzas)
1 tablespoon dried yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup luke warm water
topping: (per pizza)
I tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic crushed
Oregano, basil (any herbs from garden)
Chopped fresh tomatoes
Grated parmesan to sprinkle
Preheat oven to 200.
In the kenwood bowl combine flour, yeast, salt and olive oil. Making sure that the water is luke warm pour over flour mixture and stir. Using the dough hook of the kenwood beat for at least 8 minutes until the dough looks smooth. Brush the inside of a bowl with a little olive oil and place the dough inside (this is to avoid it sticking to the bowl). Cover with a clean tea towel and place in a warm spot for around an hour to rise. Tip the risen dough onto the workbench and knead for 2 minutes. Return to the bowl, cover with tea towel and leave for 15-20 minutes to rise again.
Scatter some flour onto the bench and divide the dough into 3. Roll into thin pizzas (making sure they’ll fit onto the trays). Place onto baking paper.
Mix together the olive oil and the garlic and spread it onto the base of the pizza. Top with mozzarella, torn up silverbeet, herbs, fresh tomato and shavings of parmesan.
Cook for 10-15 minutes until edges are crunchy and cheese is bubbling. You may want to put the pizzas directly onto the oven racks for the last few minutes to get crunchy.
