Make your own homemade Pizza Verde with this recipe


For the dough: (makes 2 tray-size pizzas or 3 regular round pizzas)
2 cups (500 ml) cake flour or white bread flour
10 ml instant yeast
2,5 ml salt
5 ml sugar
3/4 cup (180 ml) luke warm water
olive oil, for greasing the bowl

For the pizza toppings, per tray size pizza:
a small head of broccoli, cut into florets
100 g blue cheese (or feta, or goats cheese)
a handful capers
a bunch of spring onion, finely sliced
a handful of greens, including rocket and baby spinach
a drizzle of olive oil

How to

For the dough:
Mix the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Add the water and mix with your hands until it starts to come together, then press into a ball and start kneading. Knead to a smooth soft ball of dough, about 5-10 minutes. Oil the inside of a clean large bowl, then place the dough in the bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Leave to stand in a warm place to rise until doubled in size – about 30 minutes.

Pre-heat oven to 230 C.

On a clean surface dusted with flour, divide the dough into 2 or 3 balls, then roll out each one with a flour-dusted rolling pin until very thin. Transfer to a large baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper.

Top the pizza dough with small broccoli florets, crumbled blue cheese and capers. Bake at 230 C for around 7 minutes (or until golden brown on the edges), then remove from the oven. Transfer to a wooden board, then top with spring onion, fresh green leaves and a drizzle of olive oil. Serve at once.
