Papi is back, old-new car, pizza and Swedish godis
Pablo got a very nice present from papa, he missed him as much as I did and was so happy to see him back. The present he got, is a 30 years old toy car. This car once belongs to his father, when he was a child. It is so amazing to see him playing with this, by knowing that his father did once the same many many many years ago. He loves it and does not let go of it
Friday seems to be our pizza day, this is the day of the week where I mostly would make pizza for us. I love to vary and have many recipes on my hands. This one is a bit unusual, as it is not done with a tomato sauce, but hummus spread instead. The recipe is very quick and easy to make. The dough is done with yeast but does not call for any raising time, the topping is prepared quick, so you can always surprise your guests with a fresh delicious pizza out of the oven, without any bigger effort. Since we were not sure when our papi exactly will come home I decided to go for this recipe...
The original recipe comes from Loraine Pascal (a British chef, whom I like a lot) and calls only for hummus, feta cheese, courgette and cherry tomatoes. I adjusted it a bit to the left overs in my refrigerator and added pumpkin and onions to it. The result was just lovely, as pumpkin and the onions made the pizza taste even richer.
- 300 g bread flour
- 1 package dry yeast (7 g)
- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 175 ml warm water
- olive oil
- 300 g hummus
- 250 g feta cheese
- 1 small courgette (zucchini)
- 200 g pumpkin
- 1/2 onion
- 15-20 cherry tomatoes
- salt, fresh grounded pepper, olive oil
Spread hummus over the dough base. Crumble feta cheese on top. Slice the courgette with a vegetable peeler into long strips. Halve the tomatoes and season them with salt and pepper. Slice the pumpkin in thin slices and cut the onion thinly in half rings. Put courgette, then pumpkin, tomatoes and onions on the top of the pizza. Drizzle a bit of olive oil and bake for 10-15 minutes.
And for dessert some Swedish godis.....
