Monday night pizza

Ahhh, pizza. Don’t we all remember making homemade pizza at least once in our childhood? I used to love having flour all over my hands and twirling (well, trying) the pizza dough in the air to make it round. I was always really excited to spread the tomato sauce with a big spoon over the dough. Then I put my hand in a big bag of cheese and sprinkled it over the dough. I felt really accomplished actually. Yohann and I love making pizza. It makes a good meal to eat, and why not while watching a movie? Yohann was the first to try this recipe. It’s an original and healthy way to make pizza.

Makes 2 pizzas

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Resting time: 1 hour

Cooking: 15 minutes for each pizza

Ingredients:

Pizza dough (adapted from Laurence Salomon’s pizza dough)

  • 75 grams (2/3 of a cup) of whole-wheat flour (T80) OR white flour (we used whole-wheat)
  • 75 grams (2/3 of a cup) of small spelt flour
  • 50 grams  (1/2 a cup) of chickpea flour
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of curcuma
  • 1 tablespoon of baker’s yeast (or baking powder)
  • 12 cl of water

Topping :

  • 1 green pepper
  • 6 tablespoons of organic tomato sauce
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 3 tablespoons of fresh goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of Roquefort (sheep bleu cheese)
  • 200g of canned white tuna

Dough:

Pour the flours in a large mixing bowl. Add the yeast and curcuma. Add the olive oil. Mix. Add the water progressively and work the mixture into a ball of dough. Put aside and let rest for an hour.

Topping:

Finely chop the onion and garlic. Cut the pepper into strips. Marinate the tuna in olive oil and small slices of onion (1 tablespoon). In a separate (small) bowl put 2 tablespoons of fresh goat cheese and 1 tablespoon of Roquefort and mix with a fork until a cheese spread has formed.

Preheat the oven at 200C (390F)

Tomato sauce, onion, tuna and pepper pizza

Roll out the pizza dough until the dough is thin. Poke the dough with a fork and put on a baking sheet. Fold the edges of the pizza to form a small crust. Spread the tomato sauce evenly onto the dough. Sprinkle ½ an onion evenly over the tomato sauce. Repeat with the 100g of tuna and 3/4 of a pepper.

Bake at 200C (390F) for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and add ½ a clove of garlic over the pizza.

Two cheese, tuna, onion and pepper pizza

Roll out the pizza dough until the dough is thin. Poke the dough with a fork and put on a baking sheet. Fold the edges of the pizza to form a small crust. Spread the cheese mixture onto the dough. Add the onions and tuna evenly over the cheese spread. Add ¼ of a pepper.

Bake at 200C (390F) for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and add ½ a clove of garlic over the pizza.

Why this is good for me:

The mixture of the different types of flour varies from typical pizza dough. Chickpea flour is high in protein. Goat and sheep cheese are rich in calcium.
