Prosciutto, Mozzarella & Fig Pizza


Ingredients


For the base

250g strong white bread flour, plus extra for dusting

1 tsp salt

½ tsp fast-action dried yeast

125–145ml warm water

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for oiling and drizzling

 

For the topping

1 tube good-quality tomato purée

250G mozzarella cheese, sliced

8 slices prosciutto, ripped up into bite-sized pieces

5 figs, quartered

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 bunch fresh basil


 
 

Preparation


Mix the flour, salt and yeast together in a large bowl and make a well in the middle. In a jug, mix the water and oil together, then pour the liquid into the well of the flour mixture and mix to make a soft but not sticky dough.

Knead for 10 minutes by hand on a lightly floured work surface or for five minutes in an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook.

 

Bring the dough together to a smooth flat ball and place on a large, lightly floured baking tray or baking stone.

 

Cover the pizza dough loosely with oiled clingfilm, making sure it is airtight. Leave in a warm but not hot place for 30–40 minutes.

 

Preheat the oven to 220°C/Gas 7.

 

Remove the clingfilm from the dough and roll out to a 30cm/12in circle to knock some air out then prick holes all over the dough with a fork. Spread over the tomato purée, leaving a 2.5cm/1in border, followed by the mozzarella, prosciutto and half of the figs.

 

Drizzle with oil and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bake in the oven for 15–20 minutes, or until the bread is crisp and golden-brown and the cheese has melted. Scatter basil over the top and arrange the remaining figs on the pizza. Drizzle with oil.
