Ingredients

Method
  • For the basic pizza dough, mix, then knead:
  • 35 g dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water, plus extra if needed
  • 2 T yoghurt
  • A pinch of salt
  • 600 g flour, plus extra for dusting
  • For the topping:
  • 2 t oregano
  • 150 g buffalo mozzarella, torn into small pieces
  • 100 g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 75 g Parmesan cheese, grated
  • A handful rocket
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved and seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 200 g smoked salmon, sliced ,seasoned and dressed with olive oil and lemon juice
  • 3 T yoghurt and wasabi mix dressing
  • For the basic tomato sauce:
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 10 ripe tomatoes, skinned and halved
  • 1 x 410 g can crushed tomatoes
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to approximately 260°C. On a flour-dusted surface, roll out the kneaded dough to a thickness of 3 mm in a rectangular shape.
Spread with 2 T of the tomato sauce and sprinkle with oregano.
Bake for 5 minutes, then remove and sprinkle with the cheeses. Return to the oven for another 5 minutes or until cooked and the cheese melted.

Arrange the rocket, cherry tomatoes and smoked salmon on the pizza and finish off with a drizzle of the yoghurt and- wasabi dressing (see below).

To make the tomato sauce:

In a saucepan, heat the oil and briefly fry the garlic. Add the tomato halves and crushed tomatoes. Simmer for 15 minutes, then season to taste.
Cook's note: For the yoghurt and wasabi dressing, mix a tiny amount of wasabi paste with a good dollop of plain Bulgarian yoghurt.
You can always buy ready-made pizza bases from Woolworths, and simply add the rocket, tomatoes and smoked salmon, finishing with the dressing as described above.
