Prep:1 hour (+1 hour proving)

Cook:1½hours

Serves:8

 

INGREDIENTS

Vegetable oil, to deep-fry

100g goats cheese, crumbled

Basil leaves, to garnish

 

Dough

750g (5 cups) plain flour, plus extra, to dust

7g sachet dried yeast

1½tsp caster sugar

80ml (1/3 cup) olive oil

 

Yoghurt Sauce

4 garlic cloves, skin on

250g (1 cup) Greek-style yoghurt

1 tbs lemon juice

 

Topping

1 tbs olive oil

1 red onion, thinly sliced

2 red capsicums, thinly sliced

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 long red chilli, deseeded, finely chopped

1 tbs fresh rosemary leaves

12 Kalamata olives

100g baby spinach leaves

 

METHOD

  1. To make dough, sift combined flour, yeast and sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook. With the motor running, gradually add combined oil and 375ml (1½cups) warm water until a dough forms.
  2. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and stand, covered with a tea towel, in a warm place for 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, to make yoghurt sauce, preheat oven to 180C. Wrap garlic in foil and bake for 30 minutes or until soft. Squeeze out of skins and combine with remaining ingredients. Refrigerate until required.
  4. To make topping, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in capsicum, garlic, chilli and herbs. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, for a further 25-30 minutes or until lightly caramelised and very soft. Stir in olives and spinach.
  5. Punch down dough and knead for a further 5 minutes. Divide into 8 portions.
  6. Using your fingers, lightly stretch dough into 4-5mm-thick, 12-14cm rounds.
  7. Fill a deep-fryer or large saucepan one-third full with vegetable oil and heat over medium heat to 170C (or until a cube of bread turns golden in 15 seconds). Gently drop a round into the oil and fry, turning halfway, for 4 minutes or until crisp and golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel. Repeat with remaining rounds.
  8. Divide crispy dough bases among serving plates. Top with yoghurt sauce and then caramelised onion mixture. Sprinkle with goats cheese and garnish with basil to serve.
