Homemade Pizza with Bocconcini and Prosciutto

Homemade Pizza with Bocconcini and Prosciutto

Posted 2016-06-11 by finyfollow

Pizzas are interesting for me to make, as I can put whatever topping I have on them, and they are far healthier than shop bought ones.

I have made the base myself as this is also nicer than the shop bought ones, and I can make it very thin this way.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes plus proofing
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 2 - 4 servings

For the pizza base
2½ cups plain or bread flour
2 tsp dried yeast
2 tsp caster sugar
2 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
About 1 cup WARM water

For the topping
¼ cup [link http://recipeyum.com.au/pancetta-and-pecorino-cakes-with-home-made-sundried-tomato-pesto/ home made pesto], or bought pesto
2 medium tomatoes, sliced thinly
Small jar artichoke hearts, drained, halved and excess moisture squeezed out
185 g [link http://reviewclue.com.au/la-casa-baby-bocconcini/ baby bocconcini]
100 g prosciutto, chopped
1 potato, microwaved, sliced

For the base
  • Combine the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a medium bowl.

  • Make a well in the centre, and stir in the oil and enough of the water to make a soft dough.

  • Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 10 minutes or until it is smooth.

  • Put the dough in a large oiled bowl, cover and stand in a warm place for about one hour until it doubles in size (it MUST be warm or the yeast will not rise).

  • Put the dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth.

  • Divide the dough in half and roll each one on to a floured surface.
  • Make them as thin as possible

    For the topping
  • Preheat the oven to 210° fan forced, and oil two pizza trays -place the trays in the oven while you finish the dough/topping.

  • Spread the pesto on to the base of each pizza.

  • Top with the sliced tomato, artichokes and the potato slices.

  • Add the bocconcini.

  • Add pepper if required.

  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until the bases are crisp, take out of the oven and top with the prosciutto.

  • Return to the oven for another few minutes just to heat the prosciutto.

  • Cut each one into 4 pieces and serve.
