Malik’s Green Monster Pizza
Wash your hands and read the recipe before you start.
Put lukewarm (37 to 42 degrees) water into a mixing bowl. Mix in the yeast and salt. Then whisk in the flour and oil. Work on the dough with one hand until elastic.
Cover the bowl with a kitchen cloth and let the dough rise for an hour.
Heat up the oven to 225°C (fan oven). Sprinkle some water on the table, then spread 4 pieces of baking paper on the table. Sprinkle flour on the papers. Divide the dough into 4 and lift each piece on a paper. Throw some flour on the dough and roll it thin.
Spread a thin layer of pesto sauce on the pizza base. Rinse the courgette and slice it with a cheese slicer. Divide these slices on the pizzas and sprinkle thyme on them.
Drain the mozzarella balls and rip one ball on each pizza.
Rinse kale leaves and rip them into chunks in a bowl. Remove the stems. Add oil, salt and pepper, stir well. Keep the kale aside for a while.
Place the pizzas on baking papers and carefully lift them on the baking trays. You can put 2 pizzas in the oven at the same time. Bake for 7 minutes, then take the trays out of the oven and top the pizzas with kale. Bake for 3–5 more minutes until slightly brown at the edges.
Cut hot pizza to slices and sprinkle oregano over the top. Quickly clean the kitchen… and enjoy!
