with Chef Desmond Carneiro of the Pullman Vũng Tàu Hotel
Enjoy a weekend summer pizza feast with family and friends.
Chef Carneiro of the Riviera Restaurant shares his Prosciutto & Eggplant recipe.
To make pizza:
0,25kg pizza dough
0,2kg fresh mozzarella cheese
0,1kg eggplant, washed and sliced
20ml olive oil
To make tomato sauce:
0.3kg tomatoes, peeled
2g dried oregano
Basil and crushed garlic to taste
To make the sauce, mix the above ingredients together, then season to taste.
- If you have let the dough rise, give it a quick knead, then split the dough into two balls. On a floured surface, roll out the dough into two flat rounds measuiring about 25cm each, using a rolling pin. The dough needs to be very thin as it will rise in the oven.
- Spoon sauce on the centre of the stretched dough and use the back of a spoon to spread it evenly across the surface, stopping approximately ½ inch from the edges. Arrange slices of grilled eggplant on top of the tomato sauce.
- Drizzle a little olive oil over the pizza. Break the cheese into large pieces and place them gently on top of the sauce. Arrange prosciutto slices on top of everything else.
- Preheat the oven to 220C. Slide the pizza onto a pizza peel. Then slide the pizza from the peel to a heated stone or tile in the oven. Bake until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling.
