Chard, goat's cheese and spelt pizza

  • Prep: 1hr
  • Cook: 10m
  • Serves: 2

Full of interesting flavours, this wintery pizza is a welcome break from the usual tomato and mozzarella

Method

  1. Mix the flours, yeast and salt together in a large bowl or stand mixer with the dough hook attached. Add the lukewarm water and knead together for 5-8 minutes to form a smooth dough. Cover and leave to prove for 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, slice the goat's cheese and wash the chard leaves. With the water still clinging to them, pop the leaves in a frying pan with a few rosemary leaves and wilt gently for 4-5 minutes then drain off any excess water. Season well.
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 250c (or higher, if you can)
  4. When the dough is risen, divide it in two and dust the surface of 2 non-stick baking trays with spelt flour. Pat each lump of the dough into a flat disk on the trays making sure the dough it an even thickness.
  5. Now for the topping. Drizzle a little olive oil on each pizza base then top with the wilted chard, slices of goat's cheese and a little more olive oil.
  6. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the crusts are crisp then serve immediately.
