I hope you enjoy some of my latest ideas starting with a crispy, hot pizza topped with room-temperature smoked salmon, creamy cream cheese, freshly-picked, slightly-peppery rocket and a drizzle of lemon olive oil. A perfect light lunch option filled with exciting textures.

Crispy Hot Pizza topped with Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese, freshly picked Rocket and a drizzle of Olive Oil

Yields : 6 medium-sided oval shaped pizzas

Ingredients :

10 g Instant yeast

5 ml White Sugar

¾ cup lukewarm Water

1 ¾-cup Cake Flour

½ t fine Salt

20 ml Virgin Olive Oil

Method :

1) Add the yeast, sugar to the water amount and allow standing for 10 minutes

2) Make a well in the centre of the flour, salt and slowly cut in the liquid amount; finishing with the olive oil

3) Knead this dough for three minutes on a lightly floured surface

4) Place into an oiled bowl, covered with a damp cloth, and allow rising until double in size

4) Once risen divide into 6 portions of about 100g per piece and roll out thinly into a desired shape
