Grapefruit & Stuffed Dates
Feta-stuffed Medjool dates, grapefruit slices, crème fraiche & parmesan, pistachios
1 ball of pizza dough
flour for dusting
semolina flour for pizza stone
salt & pepper
1 grapefruit, peeled & sliced crosswise, with outer pith removed
handful of salted pistachios
~10-15 pitted Medjool dates
1 block of feta, cut into rectangles small enough to fit inside your dates
1/2 cup crème fraiche
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
Preheat your oven to 550° F, or as hot as it will go. Stir together the crème fraiche and parmesan, adjusting proportions to taste.
To stuff your dates, just cut a slit down one side of them and stuff a piece of feta inside. Dates are generally pretty sticky, so it should be easy to close it back up again just by pinching it together.
When your oven is hot, prepare your dough using the instructions on the right. Once you've baked it for a minute, take it out and brush it lightly with olive oil. Spread the cheese mixture evenly overtop, followed by the grapefruit sliced, dates and pistachios. Bake until the crust is a nice golden brown, then take it out and enjoy!
