Summer pizza with aubergine

July 7th, 2010 Comments Off on Summer pizza with aubergine

It is neither difficult, nor takes your time. If you have this recipe, it is a shame to order pizza from a pizzeria because it is fast and tasty!
  
For the dough:
  • 300 gr  all purpose flour
  • 9 gr. yeast 
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm water
  • salt
  • Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water. Put flour in a bowl and make a well in the center and put dissolved yeast in this center. By the help of a food mixer, mix it by adding water for 10 minutes to form a dough.  Of course if you don’t have a food mixer, knead the dough by hand. “Bash and pound the dough over and over again, as if it were your worst enemy” as Sofia Loren wrote in her cookbook. Form into a roll. Make two incisions on top of the dough. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes in warm place while you prepare the sauce.  

    For the sauce:  

  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic (mashed)
  • 100 gr. preferably home made tomato sauce
  • 1 t. basil
  • Saute mashed garlic with olive oil. Add tomato sauce and chopped basil. Bring to a boil for 8-10 minutes.  

    For the topping:       

  • 1 aubergine (cut in strips and cubed)
  • 100 gr. grated kaşar cheese (??????)
  • 60 gr. white goat’s cheese
  • thyme
  • Roll out the dough and put on lightly greased round pizza pan. Spread the dough first and then the sauce.  

    Add the topping ingredients and finally spread the grated cheese over topping.  

    Cook in hot oven (200° C -about 25-30 minutes) until crisp and golden. Before taking it from oven, sprinkle with 1 T extra virgin olive oil. Decorate with basil and serve immediately.
