    Pizza Bianca and the Crowd Went Wild

    So Pizza
    This was a real hit.
    The crowd went wild
    A Pizza Bianca
    It is so nice to make a pizza without the usual tomato base. A dollop of sour cream, a good grate of Parmesan, smothered with caramelized onions and topped with prawns.
    Make the pizza dough as per recipe here 

    This recipe makes 2 pizza bases

    Meanwhile Prep...
    2 med onions sliced
    ½ yellow pepper sliced
    Sauté in 2 tablespoons olive oil
    Season with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, ½ tsp of sugar
    And the leaves of 2-3 sprigs of fresh thyme
    Cook altogether till onions and pepper are soft and melting

    Take 12 prawns
    Add 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
    Zest of 1 lemon finely grated
    Toss with olive oil, sea salt, pepper and a little chili flakes
    Set aside

    3 tablespoons sour cream
    4 tablespoons grated Parmesan Cheese
    Heat oven to 200C
    To assemble

    Line a greased pan with Pizza Dough
    Spread it with sour cream and grated Parmesan
    Layer on the onion mix
    Dob prawns on top
    Another grind of black pepper, to finish off

    Into oven, it should take about 10 minutes depending on your oven.

    We all gobbled that up and meanwhile I had popped Pizza number 2 into the oven
    I am a big fan of Pizza Marguerita, using fresh tomatoes
    Just seasoned tomatoes and beautifully melted cheese
    Once again, can’t get more simple than this

    Take 3 med tomatoes, chop roughly
    Toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil
    Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Rip up 6-8 basil leaves
    Add to tomatoes
    Pour over pizza base
    Cover with strips of mozzarella cheese
    Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over... and bake once again till base is brown and cheese bubbling.
