Whether it is typically Canadian or not, I don't know, but I know that I found the ideal recipe for pizza dough. And the recipe itself is from a chef who has a Pizzeria in Berlin with Canadian pizzas. I also liked this variant with a filling of sweet potatoes and potatoes, and a coating of feta cheese, something completely different and unusual for pizza ... and topped with a sweet-spicy sauce of maple syrup and chili ... a beauty :)
- Knead the dough with a mixer, spiral dough attachments. Put all the ingredients in a bowl at once and mix. The yeast does not need to be melted beforehand. Let the mixer make the dough well so that all the ingredients come together. Until you get a ball that doesn’t stick to the sides of the bowl.
- * You can leave the dough immediately to rise in the heat or store it immediately in a sealed container and leave it in the fridge for 24 hours, and take it out of the fridge 4-5 hours before use to rise * I did this version with the dough standing in the fridge.
- Make a COAT: Mix the creamy fraiche with the healthy feta cheese, add a tablespoon to two of water and a pinch of salt.
- Divide the dough into 2 parts. The quantity is for 2 pizzas. Divide each into a circle and place in a sheet previously lined with greaseproof paper. VERY IMPORTANT ,,, place the dough without the filling and without the coating in a preheated oven at 250 degrees to bake for only 2 minutes. In this way, the dough will bake a little, that is, a small crust will be made on top, which will prevent the dough from getting wet from the coating and later staying wet.
- When the dough is slightly browned, coat with a coat of feta cheese.
- *** In the original recipe, grated cheeses are placed over the coating, and sweet potatoes and potatoes over them, I changed the order because I like when the cheese is on top *** So, arrange the pre-cooked sweet potatoes and potatoes, cut into thin slices, over the coating.
- Then mixed grated cheddar cheese and mozzarella. (I don’t like mozzarella so I replaced it with Emmentaler). Sprinkle with fresh thyme leaves or rosemary as desired.
- Return the pizza to the hot oven and bake for another 8-10 minutes.
- SWEET-SPICY SAUCE: Mix maple syrup with chili pepper and a little pepper in a mixer or multi practice. Determine the amount according to how much you like it hot.
- Serve the sauce with pizza. I was thrilled by the combination.
- Serve the pizza warm.
- The recipe is from here with my minimal modifications.
