Ingredients:

  • 40g cracked buckwheat
  • 25g burghul
  • 25g warm water
  • 2/3 tsp caster sugar
  • 5g dried yeast
  • 150g plain flour
  • 100g wholemeal plain flour
  • 85g tomato paste
  • 45g mozzarella cheese
  • 160g cherry tomatoes
  • 5 slices prosciutto
  • 35g baby spinach leaves

 

Method:

  1. Combine the buckwheat and burghul in a medium heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Let it stand covered for 30 minutes then rinse with cold water and drain.
  2. Combine the warm water, sugar and yeast in a small jug. Leave in a warm place for 10 minutes or until frothy. 
  3. Add the buckwheat mixture to a large bowl with the flours. Then add the yeast mixture and mix until it turns into a soft dough. 
  4. Knead dough on a floured surface about 10 mins until smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a lightly oiled large bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let stand in a warm place for approximately 1 hour or until doubled in size. 
  5. Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F. Oil four pizza trays or oven trays. 
  6. Divide the dough into quarters and roll each portion on a floured surface to even circles as pizza bases. 
  7. Spread bases with tomato paste, sprinkle with cheese, top with tomatoes and chopped prosciutto. Bake for about 20 minutes until top is lightly browned and bases are crisp (or to your liking). To serve, top with the baby spinach.
