|200g||Fresh Mozzarella Slices|
|2 tbsp||Grated Parmesan Tub|
|2 tbsp||chilli flakes|
|1 tbsp||white wine vinegar|
|400g||tinned whole peeled tomatoes|
|200g||pepperoni, thinly sliced|
|2 tbsp||olive oil|
|1/2 cup||basil leaves|
Pizza Dough (makes 6)
|1kg||00 flour, high protein (>12g per 100g) + extra for stretching|
|1||To make the pizza dough, place water into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. Sprinkle over the yeast and a third of the flour and mix to combine. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.|
|2||Add remaining flour and salt and mix to combine over low speed. Increase speed to medium and knead for ten minutes. Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, cover with cling film and set aside to prove for one hour.|
|3||Turn out the dough onto a floured bench and divide into six equal portions. Form into balls and place into 1L capacity containers sprayed with olive oil. Seal well and place into the refrigerator overnight.|
|4||Once refrigerated overnight, remove the dough balls 2 hours before cooking the pizzas.|
|5||Preheat pizza oven or preheat domestic oven to its maximum temperature with a pizza stone placed on the bottom rack.|
|6||Place the honey and chilli flakes into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over low heat for two minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the vinegar and transfer into a jar (store leftover chilli honey in the pantry).|
|7||Drain the tinned tomatoes, season with salt and blend with a stick blender until smooth.|
|8||Place a handful of flour into a shallow bowl. Gently turn out dough ball into the flour and turn over to coat in the flour.|
|9||Transfer the dough onto the kitchen bench and gently press the dough in the centre to form a flat, round disc.|
|10||Pick up the dough, allowing gravity to stretch the dough, turning to stretch it out evenly, ensuring the edges remain airy and a little thicker. Continue to stretch until a 30cm disc is formed.|
|11||Spread evenly with ½ cup of tomato puree with the back of a spoon, avoiding the rim. Sprinkle with parmesan and cover the base with pepperoni slices. Evenly distribute the mozzarella slices and drizzle with olive oil.|
|12||Place onto a pizza paddle and transfer to the oven. If using a pizza oven, the pizza will cook within 90-120 seconds, rotating the pizza frequently to ensure even cooking. Allow 8-10 minutes cooking time for a domestic oven.|
|13||Drizzle with chilli honey and scatter over the basil.|
