GRILLED PIZZA BREAD

INGREDIENTS

SEASONING

  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2teaspoons ground oregano
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3/4teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2teaspoon salt
  • 1/2teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely ground red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

FLOUR

  • 3 0.5kg balls of pizza dough
  • Chopped tomatoes, optional
  • Chopped onions, optional
  • Chopped fresh basil, optional

METHOD

  • In a small saucepan, combine the seasoning ingredients. Whisk over low heat just until the oil becomes fragrant and the mixture is warm. Remove from the heat and let rest for 2 hours at room temperature.
  • Lightly flour one of the pizza dough balls and the back of a 40 x 25cm baking sheet. Stretch out the dough to the size of the baking sheet and place it on the back of the floured baking sheet.
  • Whisk the oil mixture and then generously oil the top side of the dough.
  • Turn the baking sheet (like a big spatula!) with the dough directly onto the cooking grate. Remove the baking sheet and brush the top side of the dough with the seasoned oil. Grill over direct medium heat (180°C to 230°C), with the lid closed, until the underside of the dough is marked, 2 to 3 minutes. Don’t worry if the crust bubbles; it will deflate when turned over. Slide the dough onto the baking sheet and flip the uncooked side onto the cooking grate. Brush the top with more oil and continue to grill, with the lid closed, for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack. Top with chopped tomatoes, chopped onions, and fresh basil, if desired. Cut into individual pieces.
  • Repeat grilling procedure for the 2 remaining balls of dough. Serve warm.
