300g kumera (sweet potato), peeled and thinly sliced
Garlic olive oil spray
1 1/2 tablespoons Vegemite
2/3 cup grated mozzarella or tasty cheddar cheese
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon dried yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/3 cup lukewarm water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1. Place the potato on a paper lined baking tray and spray with oil. Bake in a hot oven 200oC for 20-25 minutes or until just tender.
2. Sift together the flour, yeast, salt and sugar. Add the water and oil and stir to make dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Place dough in an oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Stand in a warm place for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
3. Roll out dough on a floured surface to make a rough 20 x 30 cm rectangle and place on a large, lightly floured baking tray. Spread with Vegemite and then top with kumera, rosemary and cheese. Bake in a hot oven 200oC for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through. Serve immediately.
