METHOD

  • 1

    To prepare the pizza dough, mix the yeast with water and set aside to bloom.

  • 2

    In a large mixing bowl, add the flour and salt and mix well. Add the yeast mixture slowly and start to mix by hand. Add the olive oil. Mix gently and set aside for 1 hour.

  • 3

    After an hour, generously sprinkle flour over a clean work surface. Place the dough on the floured surface and start kneading until smooth (approximately 15-20 minutes).

  • 4

    Place the dough in a bowl and cover with a clean cloth and allow to proof for 24 hours.

  • 5

    To prepare the pizzas, make the avocado topping by mashing the avocados with the lime juice in a bowl and season with the salt and pepper. Store in the fridge.

  • 6

    For the ‘Good Seeds’ mix, add the black and white sesame seeds, flax seeds, sunflower and pumpkin seeds to a bowl and set aside.

  • 7

    Remove the dough from the bowl and cut it into 6 even pieces and roll into balls. Set up a work surface by flouring it and flatten the dough balls by hand, working from the centre to the outer edges.

    Brush with the olive oil, minced garlic and bake at 220°C, gas mark 7, for 15 minutes.
