Ingredients

1 cup wholewheat flour

1.5 cups all purpose flour

1 egg yolk

50g fresh yeast

1 cup milk

1 tbsp canola oil

1 tsp sugar

3 tbsp basil pesto

150g sun dried tomatoes

5 slices prosciutto

200g mozzarella cheese

Fresh rocket

Method

  1. Deposit the milk into a pan, and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Then add the yeast and sugar until the mixture has completely melted. Set aside for a few minutes, and let it cool down.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, egg yolk, and yeast mixture. Knead the dough until everything has properly combined. Brush with a touch of canola oil, and place back into a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and set aside so the dough can rise. This can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours.
  3. Preheat your oven to 180ºC (320ºF), and line a tray with baking paper.
  4. Roll out the dough on a flat surface lightly dusted with flour. Then add the pesto sauce, tomatoes, prosciutto and mozzarella. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the base is golden brown. Decorate with rocket and avocado slices.
