Egg and Bacon Pizza

Egg & Bacon Pizza

This dough has Q.B.B. ghee in it, which along with a bit of sugar, makes it richer than the average pizza dough. You can use any kind of topping for this pizza. The prepared and rolled out dough at the end of Step 8 can be stored in zip-lock bags and kept frozen. Bacon is optional. You can use other meats.

TO MAKE THE PIZZA BASE

1 sachet instant yeast

10 g caster sugar

380 g water

10 g salt

40 g Q.B.B. ghee, melted and cooled

600 g bread flour

METHOD

  1. Put the first 3 ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir to dissolve the sugar and yeast. Keep the mixture aside for 10 minutes or until you see a bit of froth on the surface.
  2. Add the salt and Q.B.B. ghee in. Combine well.
  3. Add the flour and combine evenly to make a slightly thick dough.
  4. Knead the dough, adding a dusting of flour from time to time to reduce the stickiness of the dough as you work it with your hands.
  5. Remove the dough from the bowl and put it on a floured work surface and punch knead for about 10 minutes or until the dough is silky and smooth textured.
  6. Coat the dough with a thin layer of melted Q.B.B. ghee and leave it in a greased bowl. Cover with cling wrap and keep aside for 1 hour or until it doubles in size.
  7. Press the dough and flatten to release the air that is inside.
  8. Roll the dough into a thick circle. Prick with a fork at random.
