Hello everyone, I hope you’ve all been keeping well.
If you’ve been following me for a while you would know that I really like making pizza because it’s quick and simple. Not only that but most people really enjoy it and you can get really creative and add what ever toppings you like. Today I opted for sweetcorn and kale, two of my favourites!!
Sweetcorn is such a popular and tasty pizza topping, best known for it’s high fibre content. Dietary fibre aids digestion making it important for our health. I’ve featured kale often in my recipes because it is easy to prepare but also very healthy. Kale is a great source of vitamin K which is used by the body for blood clotting and healing wounds, this is useful for recovering quicker from injuries.
My quick tip for making anything dough related is to make sure you are using yeast that is in date. This is because in the past, I have tried to make dough related foods but it didn’t rise very well or have that desired fluffly, light texture.
Recipe: Mature cheddar, kale and sweetcorn pizza (makes 1 tray)
250g plain flour
Pinch of salt
1/2 tsp caster sugar
4g dried yeast
150ml warm water
1 tsp oil
3 tbsp tomato sauce
150g mature cheese, grated
50g kale, roughly chopped
- Sift the flour into a large bowl and add the salt, sugar and yeast. Mix together and make a well in the middle.
- Pour the warm water into the well along with the oil and use your fingers in circular motions to form a smooth dough.
- Knead the dough for 5 – 10 minutes and leave to rest in a warm place for 1 hour until doubled in size.
- After the hour is up preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and lightly grease an oven tray with oil.
- Knock the air out of the dough a little, then roll out onto a floured surface until it reaches the same shape of the oven tray.
- Carefully place the dough onto the tray and add the tomato sauce, kale, sweetcorn and cheese.
- Put in the oven for 25 minutes until the edges are golden and the cheese has melted.
- Leave to cool for a few minutes before serving!
