Hawaiian Fruit PizzaTuesday, June 10, 2014
Yup, you can officially say that summer is here! The idea of lounging poolside with a margarita in hand sounds incredibly enticing right about now yet snorkelling within waters that are rich with reefs and colourful fish doesn't sound half bad either. One problem, do you have free time or some spare cash laying around, well this pizza will have to suffice. It'll have you wearing a grass skirt and doing the hula in no time!
1/4 cup of olive oil
2 tbsp of honey
3-4 cup of flour
2 tbsp of sugar
1 cup of water
1 tbsp of salt
5 tsp of yeast
1 cup of sliced pineapples
1 cup of sliced strawberries
Base of Pizza:
1 cup of mascarpone cheese (room temperature)
Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.
To make the crust:
Mix together pizza dough ingredients and let rise for two hours.
Once dough has risen, roll it out into the desired shape. Instead of flour, toss cornmeal onto a pizza stone so the dough doesn't stick. With a fork, gently poke holes throughout. Bake at 475 degrees F for 15 minutes or until the crust is lightly crisp or has a light brown tinge. Allow the pizza crust to cool for a few minutes.
Assemble the pizza:
Evenly spread mascarpone cheese over crust. Place fruit as desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Voila it's ready! Drizzle flavoured balsamic vinegar for extra sweetness!
Don't forget a fruity drink - try this sangria.
