Makes 4



Ingredients



Pizza dough



500g strong plain flour, plus extra for rolling


1 x 7g sachet easy blend yeast


1 tsp caster sugar


2 tbsp olive oil


375ml warm water



Topping



8 tbsp red onion marmalade


8 large slices Parma ham, shredded into smaller pieces


180g soft goat’s cheese, torn


5 small figs, cut into quarters



To serve



handful of rocket


extra virgin olive oil



 



Method






  1. To make the dough sieve the flour into a large mixing bowl add the yeast and sugar then make a well in the centre of the flour. Pour in the olive oil and water and mix with a spatula until the dough comes together.


  2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead for about 10 minutes until the dough is smooth. Return the dough to a clean, lightly greased bowl. Cover with a clean damp cloth and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in size.


  3. Preheat the oven to 220°C (425°F/Gas 7). Divide the flour into 4 equal portions and on a lightly floured board roll out each piece into an oval shape approximately 25 cm long and 18 cm wide. Place on 2 large non-stick baking trays.


  4. Spread 2 tablespoons of red onion marmalade on each pizza base then divide the Parma ham, goat’s cheese and figs between the four bases.


  5. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the cheese has melted and the base is crisp.


  6. To serve place each pizza on a board and garnish with rocket and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.



 



Wine pairing



Aromatic grape varieties such as Scheurebe and Sauvignon Blanc go particularly well with this dish.Goat cheese is quite versatile, so any other citrussy white with a good weight and texture just like the Riesling below would be just fine.



Recommendation: Der Elegante Riesling, Weegmüller, Pfalz, 2014 (£17.99 available at Hallgarten)
