Fruit and Millet Pizza: May 24, 2007Posted by live2cook in Sour dough.
One day I was chopping vegetables for pizza topping. Green and Red bell pepper, tomatoes, olives, yellow onions, jalapeños….The Plate was very colorful! I was amazed by mother Nature’s Art! I wondered whether I can match the colors of vegetables to Fruits. I brought all the fruits in my refrigerator and started matching the vegetables. It looked like this.
I planned to use them in a fruit salad. But the beauty of them changed my mind and thought of preparing a Fruit Pizza.
What about sauce?
I save the drippings from frozen berries, when I thaw them for recipes. I had 1 cup of this drippings sitting in my fridge. Took that in a sauce pan, added 3 Tablespoons of sugar and simmered till it reduced to 1/3 cup. Voila! Berry sauce!!
For Cheese topping, I used the crumbled Paneer pieces.
Here’s what I did for pizza crust:
Took 1 cup of sourdough starter (1/4 teaspoon of commercial yeast will equal this amount of starter), 1 cup of Ragi flour, 1 cup of Whole wheat flour, 1 cup of All purpose flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 Table spoon Olive oil, 1/2 cup warm water.
Mixed the flours together. Took 1/2 portion of the mixture and mixed with the sourdough starter. Added 1/4 cup of warm water to the sourdough mixture and mixed well. Covered with a damp kitchen towel and let it raise until doubled in volume.
Added the remaining flour to the activated starter. Added the salt, olive oil and kneaded in to smooth dough with the help of the remaining 1/4 cup of water and covered with kitchen towel. Let it raise until doubled.
When the dough doubled in volume, Punched down and took 1/2 of the dough and patted in a greased, 10 inch cast iron pan. Spread the berry sauce and topped with fruits and paneer.
Preheated the oven at 375F for 10 minutes and Baked the pizza for 20 minutes. Let it rest for 10 minutes. Sliced and Served!
With Multi grains and fruits, our tummy won’t object to have it for breakfast or brunch! Am I right? So, this is my entry for WBB11 hosted by Padmaja.
