Ingredients

Pizza Dough:
Grape and Pine Nut Pizza:
Apple and Gorgonzola Pizza:
Mascarpone and Chocolate-Hazelnut Pizza:

Directions

For the dough: Add the water to a bowl. Then add the yeast a little at a time and break up the cube of yeast with your hands. Let the yeast fully dissolve in the warm water and let stand for 2 minutes.

Add the flour on a smooth work surface and create a well in the center of the flour. Slowly add the yeast-water mixture, olive oil, and salt until the flour has absorbed the liquid. Knead the dough until the mixture becomes an even dough consistency. If necessary, add a little more flour to absorb any excess liquid.

Divide the dough into 4 equal portions to make individual-size pizzas. Place on a lightly-floured surface or pan and cover with a cloth. Let rest for about an hour at room temperature or until the dough has doubled in size. Yield: 4 servings

For the grape and pine nut pizza: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Stretch out the dough and roll out on a lightly-floured surface. Place the grapes cut-side down on the dough. Add the pine nuts and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for approximately 15 minutes.

For the apple and Gorgonzola pizza: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Stretch out the dough and roll out on a lightly-floured surface. Top the dough with apples, Gorgonzola cheese, walnuts, and drizzle with honey. Bake for approximately 15 minutes.

For the mascarpone and chocolate-hazelnut pizza: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Stretch out the dough and roll out on a lightly-floured surface. Spread the mascarpone cheese on 1/2 the pizza dough and on the 1/2 spread the chocolate-hazelnut spread. Fold over. Pinch and roll the opposite ends together. Lightly brush the dough with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake for approximately 15 minutes.

Cook's Note
