Italian Prosciutto, Caramelised Leeks and Goats Cheese Pizza

This dough recipe will give you enough for 1 pizza, plus some left over to make a garlic bread for starters.
You will also probably have a fair bit of this sauce left, which you can use to make a great pasta bake, or spread on toast, topped with cheese and grilled.

  1. Combine the flour, yeast and salt together in a bowl and make a well in the middle. Mix the oil into the warm water and pour into the well in the middle of the bowl. Stir the flour gradually into the well bringing it in a bit at a time from the side of the bowl. Get the dough out on a floured worktop and kneed for 5-10 mins until smooth and elastic. Grease a clean bowl with olive oil and put the dough into this, covering with an oiled sheet of cling film. Place somewhere warm (I put mine in the airing cupboard) and leave to rise for about an hour.
  2. To make the sauce, gently fry the garlic in a little bit of oil until golden Add all the other ingredients, bring to the boil and then simmer for 10 minutes. Blend ingredients and season to taste.
  3. Preheat the oven to 220'C
  4. Gently fry the leeks in the butter until soft and then add wither the sugar or the puree and simmer over a gentle heat for 5 minutes. Set aside until needed.
  5. When you dough is ready roll out so it is about 1mm thick and line a round pizza stone or tray, the ones with holes in are best as they make the basis crispy.
  6. Cover with your toppings and bake in the oven for 12 minutes
