500g plums (preferably assorted)

10-12 sun-dried tomatoes

200g blue cheese

200g mozzarella

4-6 tbsp. hoisin sauce

basil for serving

For the dough:

525 g flour

3g dry yeast

30 ml olive oil

20 g sugar

12 g salt

350 ml water

flour for rolling

Step-by-step recipe

Step 1

Make pizza dough in advance, 1 to 2 days in advance – it will rise and mature in the refrigerator. Mix the flour with the salt, sugar and yeast in a bowl. Pour in the drinking water heated to 40°C, add the oil and stir – just enough to moisten all the flour.

Step 2.

Lay the dough out on a work surface in the shape of a rectangle and fold four times: take hold of one short edge, pull it up slightly and fold in half. Then take the opposite short edge and do the same. Next, fold in the side edges that were originally long. Cover with cling film and leave for 15 minutes.

Step 3

Fold the dough in the same way twice more, 15 minutes apart. Then put it into a large zip-lock bag and place in the refrigerator for 24 hrs.

Step 4

On the cooking day, take the dough out 1-1.5 hours before baking, divide it into the desired number of pieces, roll into balls on a floured work surface, cover with a towel and allow to proof, 10-20 minutes.

Step 5

Heat the oven to 250°C and heat the baking trays in it, just turn them upside down – that way the pizzas bake better, just like in an oven on a stone.

Step 6.

Cut the plums into quarters, removing the pips. Finely slice the sun-dried tomatoes. Grate the mozzarella. Roll out the pastry, leaving the sides thicker. Brush the center with hoisin sauce, arrange the plums and sun-dried tomatoes, sprinkle with mozzarella and top with crumbled blue cheese.

Step 7.

Transfer the pizzas to the hot baking trays and bake for about 12 minutes. Just before serving, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with basil leaves
