Mains / Summer

4 portions


For the pizza dough:

  • 500g bread flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 7g fast action dried yeast
  • 250ml water
  • 50ml olive oil

For the hot maple sauce:

  • 240g tomato passata
  • 4 tbsp pure maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed

Pizza toppings:

  • 150g grated mozzarella

To make the pizza dough:

  1. Whisk salt, dried yeast and flour in a bowl then pour in the water and olive oil and mix with a spatula.
  2. Once mixed, after approximately one minute, knead the dough by hand and continue until the dough forms one ball. Cover the dough ball with a cling film wrap and let it rest for a minimum of 12 hours and a maximum of 24 hours.
  3. Remove the dough ball from the cling film and divide into 4 portions then roll each section back into a ball.
  4. Take a roll and press your hands in the middle to flatten.
  5. Turn it over and press and continue to turn and press approximately 10 times.
  6. Make a nice round shape then allow dough balls to rest for 1 hour at room temperature (covered).

To make the hot maple sauce:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Set aside for use when building the pizzas.

To make the pizza:

  1. Preheat your oven to 240°C. 
  2. Roll the pizza dough balls until they are each 10” in diameter and spread the hot maple sauce onto all four pizzas as a base.
  3. Add the grated mozzarella, goat’s cheese, cherry tomatoes and caramelised onions onto the pizzas.
  4. Bake your pizzas for about 15 minutes.
  5. Once baked, slice the pizzas and sprinkle some rocket leaves as a garnish.

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
