I just one first prize in a contest sponsored by http://www.igourmet.com for the best pizza recipe. I have to say I am SO excited! The requirements were to use at least one ingredient that they carry -- I used five, the 2 cheeses, pepperoni, peppers and tomato puree can all be found on their website. I think the combination of flavors will speak for itself.

  1. Combine yeast and water in a non-metallic bowl and stir until dissolved.
  2. In a separate bowl combine the flours and spices.
  3. When yeast starts to bubble, add the dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Place dough in a non-metallic bowl greased with olive oil, roll the dough until all of it is greased, cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size – about 1 hour.
  5. Sprinkle a thin layer of cornmeal onto your pizza pan.
  6. Roll dough out on a floured board to fit your pizza pan (I use 14 or 16 inch pan depending on how thick I want my crust).
  7. Preheat oven to 450 degrees – bake dough in the oven for 10 minutes or until the center of the crust looks firm. (I do this only because my oven does not get as hot as I would like it to for pizza. If you have a pizza oven, then there is no need to pre-bake the crust.).
  8. Remove dough from oven and apply toppings below.
  9. Apply layer of tomato puree onto the pizza crust (I usually use about ½ can).
  10. Sprinkle the fontal cheese on top of the sauce.
  11. Apply a generous amount of peppadew peppers over the fontal cheese (at least ½ jar) I leave the peppers whole, but you can cut in half if you prefer.
  12. Apply the sliced pepperoni.
  13. Apply the crumbled blue cheese.
  14. Brush a bit of olive oil on the rim of the pizza.
  15. Return to the 450 degree oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
