Roast Vegetable Pizza

Roast Vegetable Pizza
Home made Pizza is the best ... topped with all the family favourites... everyone is happy.
Rye bread flour crusty pizza base made from scratch
You can use a purchased pizza base or pita/mountain breads make a great crunchy alternative... or make your own also very simple...


Individual serving sizes ... Vegetarian dish
  • 220 grams of Pizza or bread flour (I have have used a Rye bread flour), 1 teaspoon of dry yeast, a pinch of salt and about 150 ml of water ... dust with a little flour knead lightly and place in a bowl covered with a tea towel for the proofing process to happen...when doubled in size, knead lightly again and then form into your pizza base ... keeping it thin and pricking with a fork will mean a crispier base, thicker will be more bread like. 
  • While waiting roughly chop, uniform in size, all the veggies you like to roast I have used zucchini, pumpkin, capsicum, mushroom, cherry tomato and onion... drizzled in olive oil and chopped fresh herbs of rosemary, thyme, mint, salt and pepper. Bake these until just cooked through because the cooking process will be finished when on the pizza base.
  • Spread your choice of either a pizza tomato sauce or creamed cheese or maybe a basil pesto over the base and cover with the roast vegetables and a little grated mozzarella cheese.
  • Fresh greens used here are baby spinach and bean shoots
  • Finish off the cooking process in a 180 oven until the base is cooked through and crunchy on the bottom... serve topped with some fresh greens of your choice and a drizzle of olive oil.

Mozzarella Cheese Making







Mozzarella Plait

Bocconcini 

My failed attempt :(
First and foremost I have to say that I loved, learned and have no regrets... even though I was the only one in the class of Mozzarella Cheese making today that failed. I will not give up stay posted, I have the equipment, the knowledge gained from the fabulous team at "The Cheese Maker" and I have a strong will to succeed. All is never lost I have made a "NEW" cheese because it is still cheese... loved the experience... loved the people... loved the location... loved the CHEESE...
