Pizza dough



Sift flour into a large bowl, then stir in yeast, sugar and salt. Add oil and enough water to mix to a soft dough. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth.


Put dough into a lightly oiled bowl. Cover and rest in a warm place until doubled in size (about 45 minutes).


Grease 2 large oven trays with olive oil spray. Punch down dough with your fist and knead lightly until smooth. Cut dough in half. Roll each piece out on a floured surface to 30cm x 20cm rectangle or 35cm round. Transfer dough to prepared trays.


Preheat oven to 180°C. Line two oven trays with baking paper. Spread pumpkin out in a single layer onto trays and brush lightly with combined oil, garlic and sage. Roast for 20-25 minutes or until soft and beginning to brown.



Brush pizza base liberally with sage and garlic oil, reserving a little for serving. Arrange pumpkin slices on top. Tear prosciutto in half lengthways and lay loosely on top. Spread provolone on top and sprinkle with Castello cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Brush with more sage and garlic oil to serve.
