Matcha mini pizza

12 Sep

Matcha, the super healthy Japanese finely-milled green tea, is not only delicious but also incredibly versatile. At Lahloo Pantry it’s used in sweet and savoury dishes. This time chef Emily has added some matcha to her usual pizza dough recipe, which adds extra goodness! Top it with your favourite ingredients and serve with salad for a delicious meal.

Nice and crispy matcha base!

Ingredients (makes 9-10 pizzettes)

  • 550g strong flour
  • 14g dried yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 50ml olive oil
  • 300ml water
  • 2tsp salt
  • 1tsp Lahloo matcha

Mix flour, yeast, matcha, sugar, oil and water and bring together. Cover and allow to rest for 20 mins. Add salt and beat until smooth and elastic. You can add a little water or flour as necessary. Allow to rest for an hour, then roll out the mini pizzas.

Choose your topping! This one has creme fraiche, tomato, onion, black olives and wilted spinach.

Bake at 200C until the base is golden and cooked through (typically around 10min, depending on how thin it is!).
