What on earth is hiding in that pizza dome?! Show us!
We all love pizza, but sometimes it can get a bit predictable. Most of the time, you know exactly what you're getting — it's there laid out on the plate in front of you. That's not the case with our latest creation, where the delicious dough is hiding something inside, and you won't find out what until you dig in. So let's get started!
- 1¾ lb pizza dough
For the filling:
- 10 oz cream cheese
- 3½ oz spinach leaves
- ½ tsp chili flakes
- 3½ oz artichoke hearts, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 5⅓ oz grated mozzarella
- 3½ oz grated parmesan
- lemon zest
- salt, pepper
For the coating:
- 1¾ oz melted butter
- 1 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
First, thoroughly mix all the ingredients for the filling in a bowl, it's best to use your hands. Form the mixture into a ball and set it to one side.
If you have made the pizza dough yourself, it's best you knead it through once more before continuing to work with it. Roll it out into a circle on a floured work surface.
Tip: When you don't have a rolling pin to hand, just use an empty wine bottle instead.
Now place the artichoke ball in the middle of the pizza dough and wrap two opposing sides of the dough over it. Don't worry if they overlap slightly.
Now fold the two remaining sides on top of each other over the ball.
Shape the dough casing with your hands so that it fits evenly round the artichoke ball, then place your work on a baking tray. Now mix the melted butter with the parsley and brush it onto the surface of the pizza dome.
After that, everything goes in the oven for 20 minutes at 360°F with the heat coming from above and below.
This unusual dome has a secret ingredient in the truest sense of the word and proves once again that vegetarian cooking can be quick and tasty.
