I had made Peking duck a few days ago, and as I ate the skin in the traditional way with pancakes, I had much of the duck meat left over, so decided to try a duck pizza!
I did not really know at first, what to team with duck however this pizza turned out delicious and unusual, with the slight gamey taste of the juicy duck meat together with the Hoisin flavour and cheese.
Preparation Time: 25 minutes plus dough rising time
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 1 - 2 servings
Ingredients For the pizza dough 1 cup sifted flour
½ tsp caster sugar
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp yeast
1/3 cup lukewarm water
1 tbsp oil
For the topping 1 cup mozzarella cheese
About 2 tbsp Hoisin sauce
2 spring onions
2 tbsp parsley
1 - 2 tbsp red capsicum
Quantity of duck meat -shredded
Chilies - to taste (optional)
¼ shallot, sliced in rings
Extra spring onion and coriander (optional) for garnish
Method For the dough
Mix the flour, sugar, salt and yeast.
Make a well in the middle and stir in the combined water and oil. Stir until it forms a soft dough.
Turn this onto a floured surface and knead it for about 3 minutes.
Put it in a lightly greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let stand in a warm place for about 30 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.
Roll out the dough for the base on a lightly floured baking paper surface.
Transfer this dough to the pizza stone which has been sprayed with oil, or use a baking tin.
Cut the vegetables similar to the photo.
Spread the Hoisin sauce over the base.
Add the sesame seeds around the edges and spread some of the grated cheese on top.
Add the chopped parsley, and chilies.
Next add the spring onions, red capsicum, and then the duck meat.
I used quite a lot of duck meat
Add a bit more cheese and the shallot rings.
Bake in a hot oven around 170 -180° fan forced, for about 10 -15 minutes.
Cut and serve with spring onions and coriander as garnish (optional).
