This week's recipe is a little more involved, but it really is one of my favourites.
Total Time: 1hr 15 mins, approx.
Serves: 2 (2 9-inch pizzas)
To Prepare the Dough:
250g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon yeast
125ml warm water
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus extra for oiling
Step 1: Sift flour and salt into a large bowl, stir in yeast. Gradually stir in water and oil to form a soft dough.
Step 2: Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 8-10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place in an oiled bowl and turn until the full surface is covered. Cover and leave to rise for 45 minutes.
Step 3: Lightly knead the dough and divide into 2 before rolling out.
1 whole chorizo sausage
2 balls of mozzarella
Step 1: Spoon out the sauce onto each base, spreading evenly.
Step 2: Tear pieces off the mozarella balls and place on top of sauce.
Step 3: Slice chorizo and place pieces on top of the cheese.
Step 4: Cook in an oven on a baking tray or pizza tray, pre-heated to 200 degrees centigrade, for 10-15 minutes, or until fully cooked.
There you go! Of course, changing the toppings up is one of the best things about making pizza. Chorizo is one of my favourite toppings, though. I recommend getting a proper round pizza tray for cooking. Use a pizza cutter to slice, or do it the proper Italian way and just eat the pizza straight off the plate with a knife and fork.
