Sweet Pepper, Fennel & Beets

September 4, 2013

 

Sweet pepper & fennel sauce, buffalo mozzarella, chioggia beets (tossed in olive oil, salt & pepper), fa​va beans, shredded carrots, arugula, shredded parmesan

Recipe

 

Ingredients:
1 ball pizza dough

flour for dusting

semolina flour for the pizza stone
Sweet Pepper & Fennel Sauce (we got ours from Robert Rothschild Farm)
3 medium chioggia beets, peeled & sliced thinly (on a mandoline if you have one)
olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
1 can fava beans, drained
1 carrot, peeled intro shreds
1-2 large balls fresh buffalo mozzarella 
handful of fresh arugula
handful of shredded parmesan

 

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 550° F, or as hot as it will go, and let your pizza stone heat up as it preheats. See the tips on the right for dough preparation.

 

First, toss the sliced beets in a bowl with olive oil, salt & pepper. Then put the dough in the oven.

After you’ve let the dough bake for a minute, brush it with olive oil and cover it evenly with a light layer of the sauce, and then with ripped off pieces of the buffalo mozzarella.

 

Follow that with the beets, fava beans, carrot shreds, and finally a sprinkle of parmesan*. Put the pizza in the oven until the cheese has melted and the crust is a nice golden brown. Then take it out, top it off with the fresh arugula, and enjoy!

 

*If you want a bit of extra crunch, you can also add the beets and carrots after you take the pizza out of the oven, along with the arugula.

HOW TO PREPARE DOUGH

#1 

Start stretching it from the center, then move it around in a circle so that gravity stretches it and creates a natural crust. It helps to put some olive oil on your hands first.

 

#2

Place the dough on your floured surface & push it out with your fingertips until it's the size of your pizza stone. You can fold over the edges to create an extra fluffy crust.

 

#3

When the oven is hot (preheat it with the stone inside), sprinkle some semolina flour on the pizza stone and place your dough on it.

#4

Bake it for about a minute, or until it starts to bubble, then take it out. This last step isn't 100% necessary, but I feel like it adds a little extra crispiness to the crust.
