Ingredients

For the dough:
500g strong white bread flour
60g sourdough starter
7g fine salt
5g fast-action dried yeast
20g caster sugar
30ml olive oil, plus extra for oiling
270ml water

For the topping:
400g tin San Marzano tomatoes, drained
30g Parmesan, freshly grated
3 x 125g buffalo mozzarella balls, drained
A handful of basil leaves, roughly torn
Extra virgin olive oil, to drizzle

Method

  1. For the dough: Put all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix together, using one hand or a wooden spoon, combine the mixture until you have a soft dough that comes together as a ball. Tip the dough out onto a lightly oiled surface and knead well for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Alternatively, use an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook to mix and knead the dough, allowing 2 minutes on a slow speed and 7 minutes on medium.
  2. Put the dough back into the bowl, cover with a large plastic bag and leave to rise for at least 2 hours, ideally 3–4 hours if you have time.
  3. Tip your risen pizza dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into four 200g pieces. Flatten down each piece then fold it over and place in a cage formed by your cupped hand on the work surface. Move your hand in a circular motion to roll each ball lightly but firmly into a smooth, taut ball. Leave the balls to rest on the floured surface covered with a roomy plastic bag, to prevent them from drying and cracking, for about 30 minutes.
  4. Roll out and stretch each ball of dough on a lightly floured surface to a thin circle, 25–30cm in diameter. If using a domestic oven, dry-fry the bases.
  5. For the topping: using a blender or food processor, blitz the tinned tomatoes until smooth.
  6. If you are using a standard domestic oven to cook your pizzas, heat to its highest setting.
  7. Put a small ladleful of tomato pulp in the middle of each pizza base (dry-fried if cooking in a standard oven, uncooked if using a pizza oven, see below) and spread out to 2–3cm from the edge. Sprinkle with the grated Parmesan, then break off little pieces of mozzarella and scatter all over the tomatoes.
  8. Bake each pizza on a tray in the hot oven for 5–7 minutes until the topping is melted and golden and the pizza crust is crisp. Scatter the basil over the pizzas and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Serve at once.
  9. If you’re using an outdoor pizza oven: Heat up your pizza oven. Roll out your pizza bases to 25–30cm. Prepare the topping (as above) and distribute over the uncooked bases. Bake in the hot

Ingredients

For the pastry
170g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
Pinch of salt
50g lard
50g unsalted butter
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons iced water

For the filling
2 bunches of asparagus (about 800g) or 200g purple sprouting broccoli
15g salted butter
1 banana shallot
1 garlic clove
3 egg yolks
1 egg
200ml double cream
200g cheddar cheese, grated
Sea salt and freshly
Ground black pepper
Crisp green salad, to serve (optional)

Method

  1. First, make the pastry. Sift the flour into a large bowl and add the pinch of salt. Add the lard and butter and rub them in with your fingertips, until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Mix the egg yolk with the water and lightly whisk, then add to the flour mix and use the back of a knife to combine, then use your hands to bring the mixture together to a firm dough.
  2. Tip out the dough onto a lightly floured board or work surface and knead it gently. Cover or wrap it in cling film and transfer it to the fridge to rest for at least 20 minutes.
  3. While the pastry rests, prepare the vegetables for the filling. If you’re using asparagus, snap off the woody stems (feel along the stem until it bends) and blanch them in boiling salted water for about 2 minutes (depending upon the thickness of the asparagus), until just cooked. Drain well. If you’re using broccoli, trim the stems and blanch them in salted boiling water for 2 minutes, until just cooked, then drain well.
  4. Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/Gas 6.
  5. Roll out the rested dough on a lightly floured board or work surface to a 25cm disc about the thickness of a £1 coin (about 3mm). Carefully use the pastry disc to line a 20cm, loose-bottomed fluted tart tin, pushing the pastry into the edges and grooves. Trim the excess to neaten. Chill the tart case in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  6. Prick the base of the chilled tart case all over with a fork, then line it with scrunched-up baking paper and pour in some baking beans (or use dried beans or uncooked rice, if you don’t have baking beans – you can reuse the beans, but don’t eat them!). Blind bake the pastry case for 20 minutes, until lightly golden, then remove the paper and beans and return the case to the oven for a further 5 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly in the tin.
  7. Turn the oven down to 180°C/160°C fan/Gas 4.
  8. While the tart case is cooling a little, make the filling. In a pan, add the butter and cook the shallot and garlic for about 10 minutes, until soft but not coloured. Transfer to a bowl and leave to cool, then add the egg yolks, egg, cream and cheese to the bowl. Give it all a good mix to break up the eggs and combine the ingredients, and season with salt and pepper.
  9. Line the base of the pastry case with broccoli or asparagus, then pour in the egg and cheese mixture. Bake the quiche for 25 minutes, until the filling is set to the touch and golden brown. Allow to cool slightly, then remove it from the tin to serve. I like to serve it slightly warm, with a crisp green salad on the side.
