When hubby suggested last year to buy a pizza stone I thought we are not going to use it as we don’t use the BBQ. After baking my first pizza on a the stone in the oven I loved it. Prepare for a few recipes of pizza, as it’s a dish I really enjoy and I make a lot of variations.
Ingredients for Halloumi pizza:
– 150g self raising wholemeal flour
– 70 ml water
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1 spoon of olive oil
– 1 can plum tomatoes
– oregano and basil
– 50g grated cheddar
– 100g Halloumi
– 5 olives
– 25g Stilton
Start by making the tomato sauce. I don’t like a very smooth tomato sauce, so I crush the tomatoes with a fork. If you prefer a smooth sauce, mix it in the blender.
Crust some garlic, then fry it a bit until it gets golden. Add the tomatoes and keep the sauce on the hob until it’s starting to thicken.
Make the dough by mixing the self raising flour with the baking powder, the olive oil and the water. Knead it for a minute.
Flour the pizza stone so it doesn’t stick to it.
Roll the dough on a floured surface.
Place it with care on the stone.
For a pizza this size you will use only half of the tomato sauce.
Add the cheddar.
Cut the olives in slices and add them to the pizza. Add the Stilton.
Bake the pizza in the oven for 20 minutes at 180C fan or 200C conventional oven. That’s it.
I made a ketchup with the tomato sauce I had left. I’ve added some chilli oil and gave it a good stir. Enjoy.
