Pizza

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the centre then pour in most of your yogurt. Combine with a spatula until it comes together, then begin forming into a ball with your hands. It should be very slightly tacky, but not so much it sticks to your fingers. Add a pinch more flour if it's too wet, add a dollop more yogurt if it's too dry. The perfect consistency will take all the dough off the edges of the bowl.
  • Place on a floured surface and knead for a 4-5mins until completely smooth and lump free, adding more flour as needed. The kneading process will dry out the dough so don't add too much flour or it'll throw off the consistency. Cover and rest for 5-20mins (perfect time to prep toppings). Use a sharp knife to divide into 4 smaller portions.
  • One by one roll out each ball into a 7"x7" circle. Brush one side of each of them with olive oil (just enough to full coat the surface, around 1 tsp per side should be fine).
  • Heat a pan over medium-high heat and when hot carefully place a flatbread oil-side-down in the pan. Brush top with oil. Allow the dough to puff up and lightly char, then flip and leave to lightly char on the other side. Remove from pan and repeat (refer to notes).
  • Place flatbreads on a large tray (or two if you need to) and coat each with pizza sauce, then sprinkle with mozzarella. Finish with your toppings (see notes) then place under the grill and broil until golden and gooey. The flatbreads are already completely cooked, so baking is not necessary. It's only the toppings you need to cook.
  • Allow to rest for a few mins, they may be slightly soft at first, but they do firm up as they cool. Slice 'em up and enjoy!

Notes

a) Yogurt - You can also use Greek Yogurt for this. In all cases I recommend full fat, but not flavoured (vanilla etc). If at any point you run out of yogurt but the dough is still dry, you can add water.
b) Heat and Texture - Usually if I'm making flatbreads I cook a little longer on medium heat. This will result in softer, more flimsy flatbreads. However, in this case I crank up the heat to get the surface lightly charred and crispy. This will give you a more sturdy pizza base. The higher heat will cause black circles to appear, almost like a naan bread. This is fine, and will actually add flavour. Depending on the heat, they'll only need a couple minutes max on each side.
c) Pizza Toppings - Here are my go to's and the ones I use in the video, but work to preference!
  1. Pepperoni (thin slices of pepperoni)
  2. Veggie (peppers, onion, olives, jalapeño, mushroom, sun dried tomato).
  3. Chicken, Bacon & Cheddar (cooked chicken, part cooked bacon and replace half mozzarella with cheddar, the finish with a drizzle of ranch). 
  4. Sausage and Peppers (different coloured peppers, then finish with a few pinches of crushed fennel seeds before baking)
d) Make Ahead Flat Bread - You can make the dough, roll into rounds and stack (with baking paper in between) in the fridge for a couple of days. Or, you can completely cook them, allow them to cool, then cover and store at room temp for a couple of days. Can also be frozen, just defrost at room temp or bake at 180C/356F for a few mins until heated through if you want to serve hot.
e) Make Ahead Pizzas - Best way is to freeze them either before or after you've baked them. If you're storing before you've baked, just cover and pop in the freezer. From there, bake at 180C/356F for a few mins until just heated through, then switch on the grill and broil until cheese melts on top and the toppings cook. If you're storing after you've baked them, allow to completely cool then cover and store in the freezer. Reheat in the oven at 180C/356F until the cheese starts to bubble and the centre is hot.
