With summer fast approaching there’s no better way to celebrate the silly season than whipping out a gourmet jam or chutney to create some tasty home made treats.
In a small bowl place the warm water, yeast, sugar and oil. Stir all the ingredients together and let it stand for 5-10 minutes until the mixture becomes frothy.
In a large mixing bowl place the flour and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the yeast mixture. Using your hands gently bring the mixture together to form a rough dough.
Take the dough out of the bowl and place onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough for 10 minutes until the dough feels smooth and elastic. Place into a clean, oiled bowl and cover lightly with a tea towel. Let it sit for about an hour or until it doubles in size.
Preheat oven to 250°C. Place a pizza stone into the oven 30 minutes prior to cooking to preheat.
Remove the dough from the bowl and knock out the air with your fist. Divide the dough into three even sized balls. Place each ball of dough onto a piece of baking paper and roll out into rounds of about 25cm. Prick each base evenly with a fork.
Spread 1-2 tablespoons of Hank’s Chilli Jam onto each base leaving about a 2cm gap around the edge. Place the sliced cherry tomatoes, goat’s cheese and prosciutto evenly among each pizza.
Carefully take the pizza on the baking paper and place onto the pizza stone. Bake each pizza for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and top with the rocket. Slice and serve immediately. Repeat with the remaining pizzas.
