Hello everyone and welcome back to a brand new Nikoli's Kitchen! This week on the show, I'm talking about where I am in my current journey, and then in the back half of the show I'm talking about this new pizza dough recipe as a base for this incredible vegetarian breakfast pizza! This is a MUST-TRY if you love breakfast pizza! Thank you all so much for listening!
Featured Recipe for this Episode
Pizza Dough recipe:
1-3/4 cups hot water
2 T olive oil
2 t Salt
1 t white sugar
1 t garlic powder
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 cups bread flour
2-1/4 t yeast
Combine the water and sugar, and stir. This mixture should be lukewarm, around 110°.
Add the yeast and stir. While it proofs, move on to the next step.
Add flour, salt, and garlic powder to your stand mixer bowl and mix the ingredients together with a whisk.
Attach your dough hook. Turn on the mixer and add the olive oil.
Add the yeast mixture slowly until the dough begins pulling away from the sides of the bowl. If it becomes sticky and sticks to the bowl, add a touch more flour; if it is still shaggy looking, add more of the yeast mixture in small dribbles (or water if it is gone).
Tip the dough onto a lightly-floured counter and form into a ball.
Separate the dough into two equal-sized balls.
Oil the inside of two large bowls with olive oil and place the balls of dough inside.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 24 hours but up to 48.
Take the dough out 2 hours before you plan to bake your pizza to allow it to rise.
Sprinkle a light dusting of flour or cornmeal on your counter or surface (depending on the type of pizza).
Begin working your dough out by hand, keeping it circular, stretching it to the size of your pizza pan. I didn't need a rolling pin for this, but use it if you need it.
Place your dough onto the pizza pan.
1/4 c unsalted butter
1/4 c all-purpose flour
1-1/2 c milk
1/2 c heavy cream
1 T salt
Nutmeg and allspice to taste
1/2 c freshly-shredded parmesan cheese
Melt your butter in a saucepan over mid head.
Add your flour and stir until well-combined, cooking for 1-2 minutes to cook out the flour taste.
Add your milk/cream and stir (I'll note I had 2% milk, hence the heavy cream- you can use 2 c whole milk instead).
As this begins to cook it will thicken into your béchamel.
Add seasoning and stir to combine.
Remove from the heat and add your parmesan cheese, stirring until melted and well-combined.
Layer béchamel over your pizza dough.
2 c shredded mozzarella cheese
2 c freshly-shredded white cheddar cheese
2 c baby spinach, roughly chopped
1/2 red onion, very thinly sliced
Fresh Black pepper
Preheat your oven to 450°.
Whisk your eggs in a large bowl with 2 T water until well-combined.
Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over mid heat.
Add the eggs and cook them, stirring regularly, until they are about half-done.
Remove from the heat, continuing to stir.
Add partially-cooked eggs onto the pizza dough in an even layer.
Add your spinach and red onion in an even layer.
Cover with your cheeses.
Season with freshly-cracked black pepper.
Bake in the oven at 450° for 12 minutes.
Open your oven and de-pan your pizza (optional but it'll help crisp up that crust).
Bake for another 5 minutes or until the cheese is nice and browned.
