Apple and Gorgonzola Pizza {vegetarian recipe}

apple and gorgonzola vegetarian pizza recipe

 

It’s a sorry state of affairs, when your biggest achievement of the weekend is not being hungover. But I would just like to say – I wasn’t hungover at any point and it was fab. My boyfriend and I went to watch Toby and Reece, my flatmates, in an English comedy night called Adorable Creatures. It’s in Rixdorf in Neuköln. I had never realised how wonderfully serene and rural Rixdorf is. It’s like a small piece of idyllic country living in the extremely urban Neuköln landscape. I was seduced by the place.

On Saturday, I headed down to Freckles with some friends – including my friend Minette who is allergic to eggs and nuts. Thus why we went to Freckles – it’s vegan. I was trying to not be bias against vegan baking when I arrived, but once I had tried the cakes, I had to take my hat off to them. They had this amazing apple “meringue” pie.. and I have no idea how they made such an amazing substitue for meringue without egg OR dairy. I will have to ask and then update you all. I would recommend Freckled Heaven to vegans or non-vegans. Great cake!

Despite the glorious sun filled weather of last week, it seems to be the case that the weather has simmered back down to a more normal March climate – unpredictable and a bit chilly. Having just booked my flight to NYC (whoop whoop.. so excited) to see my bestie who is currently living there, the rest of this month is going to be pretty frugal. But that doesn’t mean it has to be boring and hideous. Just perhaps less meat and more creativity is a must. An example of cheap deliciousness was the spinach and ricotta canneloni I made on Saturday for a friend’s “italian themed dinner party”. So lush. Recipe for that coming soon!

Also – has anyone else started watching True Detective? I am absolutely obsessed and I only started watching in yesterday. So dark, creepy but awesome. No spoilers please – I am only on the fourth episode.

I also made some easy but delicious and cheap pizza at the weekend: Apple, gorgonzola and cress pizza. NOMNOMNOM. It’s a great recipe for vegetarians who are tired of the normal combinations of pizza toppings!

Pizza Dough

Ingredients

  1. 500g plain flour
  2. 1 tsp salt
  3. 1 tsp fresh yeast
  4. 325 ml warm water
  5. Toppings:
  6. Gorgonzola cheese
  7. mozzarella cheese
  8. Thinly sliced apple
  9. cress
  10. salt
  11. chilli oil
  12. pepper
  13. pomegranate

Instructions

  1. Place the flour and salt together in a bowl and mix together.
  2. Dissolve the yeast in the water and gradually add to the flour. Mix well until it forms a dough. Knead well for 5 minutes.
  3. Roll the dough into a ball with your hands and cover with a cloth for 5 minutes.
  4. Knead the dough more and divide into two.
  5. Knead each piece for a couple of minutes each and form into balls. Leave to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  6. Roll the dough out with a rolling pin until it is about half a centimetre thick.
  7. Put the dough on an oiled baking tray: the edges must be a bit thicker.
  8. Place the toppings on top of the pizza (except the pomegranate which should be added later)
  9. Bake for about 10 mins in a preheated oven at 250°C
  10. Add the pomegranate and then serve hot

    What a beautiful pizza … both the photographs and the ingredients you’ve added! I love the idea of combining apple with a tasty cheese and pomegranates … so simple and yet a little bit different. Pinning this!

    Oh, True Detective. <3
    Never tried pomegranate on a pizza – must give this a bash sometime!

    I just started watching True Detective too! It is so good. I think I’m up to episode 4. Loving it! The flavors of this pizza sound delicious!

    Isn’t it amazing how productive you can be when you aren’t hungover?! This pizza sounds great! I love that you used pomegranate seeds – so interesting! Pinning!

    YUM! Perfect meatless pizza for our meat-free Fridays in Lent. Just beautiful!

    Eeeek this is beautiful! So funny, my flatmates and I just planned a small get-together for the Girls finale (do you watch?) with homemade pizza and were brainstorming topping combination ideas. Apple and gorgonzola is surely going on the list now 🙂
    Yeah it’s definitely a shame about the weather—we were all hoping it would be summer suddenly next week, but alas it’s pretty dreary again. New York will be amazing, though. I reckon your friend will have good stuff lined up for you already, but do let me know if you want any suggestions for places to see/eat/play!

    In general my weekend goal is to not be hungover, so GO YOU! I love the fun toppings on this pizza. It is definitely a great change-up from the norm!
