Potato and Asparagus Pizza
Potato and Asparagus Pizza
Method
  • In a mixer’s bowl, combine the yeast, water and honey and set it aside for 5 minutes, until the yeast activates.
  • When ready, add the hard flour, whole wheat flour, olive oil and salt.
  • Beat on medium speed with the hook attachment for about 5-8 minutes, until a dough forms and it pulls back from the sides of the bowl.
  • When ready, transfer the dough to a bowl brushed with olive oil.
  • Cover with a towel or with plastic wrap and set it aside to rest for at least 1 hour until it doubles in size.
  •  In the meantime, prepare the pesto sauce.
  • Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and beat until you create a soft paste. Set aside until needed.
  • Clean the asparagus and wash the potatoes thoroughly. Thinly slice the potatoes with a mandolin.
  • Place a pot full of slightly salted water over medium to high heat and bring to a boil.
  • Add the potatoes and the asparagus and boil for 3 minutes. It is actually better if you boil them separately.
  • When ready, drain the vegetables and rinse under cold running water. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
  • When the dough has risen, remove from the bowl and lightly knead.
  • Divide it in half, dust with some flour and roll out each piece to a circle that is 25-30 cm in diameter. This amount of dough can either make 2 smaller pizzas or one large one.
  • Press down on the dough with your fingers to make small indentations, leaving a distance of 2 cm in between each indentation and leave the border as is.
  • Spread the pesto sauce over the dough.
  • Add the potatoes and asparagus, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and very carefully transfer the pizza to a baking pan.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
