Hot on the heels of last week’s croissants, I now move to the letter G of my International Baking themed posts. Since Saturday is normally Pizza Day in our house, I decided this recipe was similar enough that I could do it as a pizza substitute.
For the bread dough I simply used 300g of plain flour, 50g of wholemeal and 50g of semolina flour and let our bread maker do the mixing and first round of kneading. This would be enough for 3 or 4 servings, depending on how large you like them.
After rolling the dough into ovals, I rolled up the sides to form diamond shapes, then filled with cheese. Various recipes I’ve read use mixtures with cheeses like feta, mozzarella, and either a cheddar or some kind of curd cheese. I used roughly equal amounts of the first 3, mixed together and grated.
The breads were baked at gas mark 7 for about 10 minutes, then I took them out, made a small hollow in the middle and cracked an egg into it. I then put the breads back into the oven for about another 7-8 minutes, until the eggs looked done.
The end result was very pizza-like, and is definitely something to make gain. I will try adding other toppings before adding the cheese, such as pesto sauce, garlic butter, meat or vegetables.
