Pizza, favoured by all ages, is simply the best treat dinner there is. Easily made and delicious to devour, this round golden circle of joy is sure to put a smile on anyone's face when it comes to tea-time.
The most important point of making a pizza is the dough and the cooking method. Although pizza dough is a changing concept based on different palates, pizzaiolos suggest that the dough should be as thin as possible. It is believed that a more delicious pizza can be obtained by focusing more on toppings rather than the dough. The pizza dough is as important as baking it. This is why we have done all the hard work for you!
Our Hobbs House Pizza Dough Rolls are the perfect base for a plethora of toppings. Now, cheese and onion are a classic combination together but trust us when we say that it's a flavour combo not just destined for a crisp packet. Here, caramelised onions couples with salty pools of savoury blue cheese for that wonderfully flavourful kick of saltiness. It's a truly wonderful pizza, designed for those long and slow evenings when the nights draw in fast and where the only thing that is on your schedule is bed-time.
2 onions, finely sliced
200g of Bath Blue
Handful of Stoneground White Flour
Handful of thyme
To prep the dough, line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and evenly place the frozen sourdough balls. Cover in a loose covering such as a tea-towel or a bag and leave to prove in the fridge for around 10 hours. Remove from the fridge and then allow them to come up to room temperature for around 2 hours. Leave the dough covered until you are ready to shape.
To shape, dust with a little flour and rest for a couple of minutes before one at a time rolling them - or if you're confident, throwing them - to make your deliciously thin pizza base.
Before preparing your pizza for cooking, pop the oven onto pre-heat on it's highest temperature.
To prepare your toppings, on a medium heat place a heavy-based pan with a knob of butter. Into the pan, put the onions and begin to stir around in the melted butter. Keep on stirring the onions, ensure that they don't start to burn. They should be turning a wonderful bronzed brown and filling the kitchen with a wonderfully savoury smell.
Whilst your onions are browning, pop your tray to cook your pizzas on in the oven to heat up to ensure that the crust is golden!
Once the onions are fully caramelised and sticky, you are ready to start to build your pizza! Onto your prepared pizza dough bases that you made earlier, arrange your caramelised onions all over the top of the pizza dough. On top of the onions, crumble the salty blue cheese and sprinkle some of the thyme on top. Carefully place it onto a pre-heated tray and pop in the oven for around 12 mins or until the crust is golden and the cheese has melted!
Enjoy straight out the oven, served with a good glug of red wine.
