Wholemeal Pizza Dough with Brie Apple and Caramelized Onion

Wholemeal Pizza Dough with Brie Apple and Caramelized Onion

Posted 2018-01-30 by finyfollow

I love pizzas and tend to make them from "scratch" myself as they are healthier that way.

This time I used a wholemeal flour, and caramelized the onions before adding them. Although it does not look like much, I could only eat half this pizza for one meal.

Preparation Time: 45 minutes plus proofing
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 2

For the base
1½ tsp dry yeast
1½ tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
½ tbsp olive oil
130 ml water
250 g wholemeal flour

For the topping
1 apple, finely sliced
1 large onion, diced
115 g Brie cheese, cubed
About 50 g pizza sauce
Handful rocket (optional)
½ cup mozzarella cheese, grated
A bit of Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tbsp honey
Parsley, finely chopped (optional)

For the base
  • Mix the yeast, sugar, salt, olive oil and water in a bowl and stir until combined.

  • Add the flour and fold through until just combined, and knead for 5 to 10 minutes or until a smooth ball forms.

  • Put the dough ball on a lightly oiled bowl (I used the same bowl), and cover with cling wrap.

  • Put it in a warm place for an hour or until it doubles in size.

  • Punch the dough to remove excess air, and knead it again lightly.

  • Divide the dough - this make one plus there is some left over for a smaller one, so double the quantities if you want to freeze one.

  • For the topping
  • The longest part of this recipe is caramelizing the onion, so cook this first, as it takes at least 20 minutes.

  • Heat the olive oil and add the onions, with some salt and pepper - if you like rosemary, you can add a bit of this.

  • Cook until onions become translucent and then turn down the heat and cook slowly, stirring often, until they are golden.

  • Preheat the oven to 220°/200° fan forced.

  • Prepare a pizza stone or whatever you will make it on, by heating this up first.

  • Spread the pizza dough over this, and I made it very thin as I prefer thin pizzas!

  • It doesn't matter if this is even and can be rectangular or a circle.

  • Put the pizza sauce on this, add the onions, and apples.

  • Top with the cheeses, firstly using the Brie.

  • Drizzle the pizza lightly with a good honey.

  • Then add the parsley and the rocket if using.

  • Cook in the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the crust is slightly crisp and the cheeses have begun to turn a golden brown.

  • Cut with a special pizza cutter - this makes it easy to slice!

  • Serve.
