So, Friday night was pizza night at our place this week. The kids love it and it is guaranteed a winner, no matter how tired, cranky and otherwise they may be. But pizza got me thinking. Many moons ago, pre kids, we lived in London. On the high street in Hampstead to be precise. It was lovely. There was a chain pizza store in London that sold dough balls, by the three, stuffed with cheese and possibly with garlic. Stuffed pizza dough balls. Yum.
I wanted them. Today I wanted them more than anything on the earth. Thinking about it, realistically, they couldn’t be too hard to make, right? And they aren’t. They are easy. And they taste great and get the tick of approval from the mini kidgredients and did I mention they look amazing?
The dough recipe is adapted from the Bourke Street Bakery book. This is two part baking, you do it in the springform for 15 minutes then on a pizza stone or tray for a further 10. What ensues is a goey deliciousness that can only come from cheese wrapped in dough.
