Stove Top Pan Pizza in Bessemer 34cm base and lid


If you want to make a quick and easy pizza with any topping of your choice well here's a recipe that will get you going on top of the stove.  No need to preheat the oven or have a hot kitchen especially during summer - a pan pizza ready in 30 minutes, that's it !  Here's my recipe which my girlfriend and I use all the time.  Use toppings of your choice or use ours as below.  Enjoy.

Pizza Base:
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
Salt and pepper, freshly ground
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon olive oil

Topping (1)
Tomatoes puree (passata)
Black Kalamata Olives, pitted
Mushrooms, sliced,
Sundried tomatoes in oil, sliced
Green capsicum, sliced
Brown onion, sliced
Fetta cheese, crumbled
Tasty cheese, grated
Dried oregano to sprinkle
Olive oil to drizzle over the top

Method for Topping (1)
In the 34cm pan mix together with Bessemer plastic spoon flour, salt/pepper, water and olive oil.  Mixture will be quiet wet and sticky, just use the back of the spoon to spread mixture evenly over the base and to the sides of the pan.  Pour over the tomatoe puree and spread all over the base dough.  Add all the other ingredients in order as above.  Place on top of stove covered with a lid (vent open) over low/medium heat for 25 minutes.  You will also need to remove the lid every 10 minutes for the steam to escape.  After 25 minutes the pizza would be cooked, take the pan from the stove and place under a heated grill for 5 minutes or until golden.

Topping (2)
4 potatoes, peeled and sliced
½ cup Mozzarella cheese, grated
150g mushrooms
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
2 garlic cloves, crushed
Olive oil,drizzle
Dried Oregano
Salt and pepper, freshly ground

Method for Topping (2)
In the 34cm pan mix together with Bessemer plastic spoon flour, salt/pepper, water and olive oil.  Mixture will be quiet wet and sticky, just use the back of the spoon to spread mixture evenly over the base and to the sides of the pan.

Slice potatoes and place in a bowl, combine with olive oil & salt/pepper, oregano and garlic, set aside.

Slice 150g mushrooms and place in a bowl, combine with olive oil & salt/pepper, orgegano and garlic, set aside.

Now you’re ready to assemble the pizza as follows:

On the pizza base scatter mozzarella cheese, lay the potato slices in a single layer on top of the mozzarella cheese, sprinkle with the mushrooms all over the potatoes, sprinkle with parmesan, drizzle with olive oil all over.  Place on top of stove covered with a lid (vent open) over low/medium heat for 30 minutes.  You will also need to remove the lid every 10 minutes for the steam to escape.  After 30 minutes the pizza would be cooked, take the pan from the stove and place under a heated grill for 5 minutes or until golden.
