Fruit Pizza

Ingredients
  

For the dough

  • 100 grams of high-gluten flour. Most people will prefer to use the all-purpose flour for the same
  • 60 ml of water
  • 1g salt
  • 5 grams of sugar· 
  • 5 grams of olive oil
  • Double the ingredients if you want a giant pizza

Ingredients for toppings

  • Canned fruit diced (You can either use canned fruit in syrup or water)
  • Mozzarella cheese (Pre shredded. You can also use fresh, whole mozzarella and cut it into slices)
  • Any flavor of fruit preserves or jams (Apple Butter works great too!!)

Instructions
 

  • Dough making
    Mix all of the dry ingredients first: the flour, sugar, and salt. Have another bowl where you can easily mix the liquid ingredients. So then you will mix the olive oil and the water. Give the liquids a whisk and gently pour in the liquid mixture in the flour.
    The dough should be slightly sticky but then not too soft. If need be, add small amounts of water to attain the right consistency.
    Once all of the ingredients of the dough are mixed, you can go on kneading. You aim to attain the perfectly smooth dough. When you have the dough being nicely smooth, you can cover it and rest for 10 minutes.

  • Making the toppings
    I'm one of those who prefer to use very fresh fruits. I wouldn't say I like to use the frozen fruits because you don't know how you'll maintain the perfect moisture. It's always your aim to make sure you don't use the very soggy pizza, so anything you can do to keep off the excess water.
    If you like, though, you can use the canned fruits. I wouldn't say I like to use the canned one, but if you can find ways to release the excess fluid, then you are good to go. If you are going to use your canned fruits, you should open your canned fruits.
    Go on and drain the liquids entirely because you don't want a soggy pizza.
    Meanwhile, preheat your oven at this point to 200-220°C (400-425°F)
    Now using a chef's knife, you should chop your fruits roughly to attain the perfect sizes. Make sure you then cut them into smaller pieces. Set it aside.

  • The pizza preparation
    Check that the dough is ready for you to work on it. Give it as much time to proof and be ready to use. When you are finally ready to work it, you will need to punch it down and roll it out on a floured surface. Once you get the desired size and shape of your pizza, place it on a greased baking pan.
    Do you know how to spread the dough? Make sure you have it being nicely thin and then ready to set the topping too.

  • Now you can spread a layer of your chosen fruit preserve or jam on the crust. The best way to go about it is to spread the jam about 1/8th-1/4 inches over the crust. Remember not to spread it close to the edge of the pizza dough.

  • Time to bake it
    You have the oven already preheated, so you should set the crust with the jam spread in the middle part of the oven.  You want it then to first off cook for a little bit before you can add anything else.
    Allow the pizza to bake for 10-15 minutes at (400-425°F). Adjust temperature according to your oven. Bake the dough until it's lightly golden in color. Worry not; you are not done yet. You will need to get it back into the oven in a few minutes.
    When the dough gets to change to a golden brown color, you should get it out to add other toppings. Remember this is the time to add the fruits as you don't want to overcook the fruit pieces.

  • Add more toppings
    Here, you should add the other toppings like the mozzarella and fruit pieces. If you'd like, you can add a few more dollops of fruit preserve or jam on top.
    Don't shy out with the cheese; you can add as much as you need at the top. Remember, you want it to become nicely stretchy. Remember, the fruits you use depends on the type you have. Some people prefer berries, and others will use pineapples and mangoes as we did.

  • Put it back in the oven and bake at 200°C (400°F) for 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
    Your pizza is now ready for you to use it.
