Fig, Goats Cheese and Rocket Pizza

Serves 2

140g Strong Bread Flour
1 teaspoon Easy Blend Yeast
1 tablespoon Olive Oil

1/4 Can Tomatoes
1/2 tablespoon Tomato Puree
4 sprigs Fresh Thyme (dried also ok)
3 Figs
25g Goats Cheese
25g Feta Cheese
Large handful Spinach
Rocket leaves

To make the bread dough sift the bread flour into a large mixing bowl and add the yeast and a pinch of salt. Make a well in the flour and into that add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 75ml of luke warm water. Mix it with a wooden spoon combining all the flour untill it has come together as a dough (add a little more water if needed). Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 5 minutes then shape it into a ball, coat it very lightly in oil to keep it moist and place in a bowl covered in cling film for an hour or so to let it rise.

In a pan add the tomatoes, tomato puree, thyme and a little salt and pepper and reduce the tomatoes down slightly. Take off the heat and put it to one side. At this point you should also wilt your spinach.

Roll out your pizza base so it is really thin but not translucent and spread your tomato mix onto the base. Top the base with some sliced goats cheese, crumbled feta, wilted spinach and 1 fig which has been thinly sliced.

Bake in the oven for 10 mins at 190c or untill cooked. Top with wedges of fresh fig, a little more crumbled feta and some rocket leaves and serve big wedges with some salad.

I have made this pizza quite a few times now using all sorts of different cheeses and I think this is the best combination! Figs are in season so they’re not overly expensive at the moment (I bought 4 for £1) and if worried about budget then you can use 2 for this recipe if you’d prefer or if your feeling lavish you could even add some more to the top.
You could also make double portion of pizza dough to either freeze for another time or if you have friends over why not make two pizzas with a selection of toppings, this fig pizza goes perfectly with some parma ham if you wanted to do one vegetarian pizza and one meat pizza.

The other nice thing about pizza is that whilst it may seem like a lot of effort to make the dough it means you have the ingredients in your cupboard ready to make more pizza or rolls or bread etc.

So I hope you enjoy this recipe! x x
