So My dear readers, this monday Im giving you something new and quite exciting.
A food video.
These will pop up from time to time.
I was lucky enough to be able to make this with photographer Colin Cooke, Thanks Colin.
Its a lot of work, but great fun to make these little videos.
The first one is a grilled pizza.
Easy and fun to make, and I tell you that crust is amazing!
Makes 2 pizzas
2 teaspoons dry yeast
1 1/3 cup lunkwarm water
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 1/2 cups plain flour
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 cup parmesan, grated
2 cups basil
1/2 cup olive oil
1 small squash
8 large slices prosciutto
1 cup crumbled goat cheese
10 large basil leafs, teared
So, start with the dough.
Mix yeast and water in a bowl.
Leave for 5 minutes and add honey, salt, oil and flour.
Mix until you have a smooth dough.
Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise for at least 1 hour.
Get your grill going, remember it needs to be really hot.
You will need a clean grill rack for this, so clean it well if its old and gritty.
Place all your pesto ingredients on a cutting board and chop it until its all chopped well together.
Place in a bowl and add the olive oil. Mix well.
Slice the squash, toss in oil and grill 1 minute on each side.
Divide your dough in two and place it on a well greased parchment paper.
Press it out using your fingers and coat it with a layer of olive oil.
Flip the paper upside down on your grill and slowly remove the paper.
Let the pizza grill for 3 minutes.
Take it off and place it on the paper.
Add pesto, squash, prosciutto and goat cheese.
Slide the pizza of the paper onto the grill and grill for another 3 minutes.
Take it off, add basil, cut in pieces and enjoy.
