Ingredients

Pizza dough
500 g strong white flour
100 g semolina flour
25 ml olive oil
50 ml luke warm milk
300 ml luke warm water
1 tsp salt
7 g dried yeast


Tomato sauce
1 tin chopped tomatoes, 400g
1 tbsp olive oil
50 ml dry red wine
1 large garlic clove, pressed
1 tsp herbes de provence
salt and pepper to taste


Pizza
100 g grated mozzarella
80 g soft goats cheese
1 romano pepper, halved and sliced
200 g jumbo king prawns, peeled and cooked
Tomato sauce (see above)


Directions: 

Dough
  1. In a large glass mix together the milk with the water.
  2. Sift the flour and semolina into a large mixing bowl, add the yeast, salt and the oil, gradually add the water, mixing all the time unit a soft dough is formed.
  3. Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 4-5 minutes. The dough should be elastic.
  4. Clean the mixing bowl and put the dough back into it. Cover with paper towels or cling film and leave to rise for 2 hours.
  5. When doubled in size, knock it back, and knead again for 2 minutes. You can use the dough now, but we leave it in a bowl for an additional hour to rise again.
  6. Once risen divide the dough into five or six bowls and roll each out with a rolling pin on a floured surface.
  7. If you don't need all the dough you can wrap it in cling film and freeze.


Tomato sauce
  1. Heat the oil with the garlic in a medium sauce pan.
  2. Add the chopped tomatoes, wine and the herbs the provence. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook over a medium heat for 10-12 minutes until reduced, stirring continuously.
  4. Once reduced blend it with a blender or in a food processor, until smooth.
  5. If it's not thick enough, return to the pan and cooked until thickened.


Pizza
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C fan assisted).
  2. Spread the pizza base with the tomato sauce.
  3. Sprinkle with a bit of grated mozzarella, arrange the prawns, pepper and crumbled goats cheese on top.
  4. Add the remaining mozzarella.
  5. Place on a preheated pizza stone, put into the oven, bake for 10-12 minutes, until edges of the base are golden and the mozzarella has melted.
  6. Alternatively can be baked without the stone, just place it on a sheet of a baking paper and put into the oven.
  7. Serve.
