Girls night in – hoisin duck pizza

 My Mum has requested a few recipes that we made together while she was over here a few weeks ago. Its good to have some filler blog posts while I get my head straight. I am feeling MUCH happier today thank you!Last week I had the girls over for a lingerie party. I know, I know, but it was more of an excuse to catch up with friends than anything else and it was lovely to see lots of my friends without children or distractions. I made poppy seed blinis with smoked salmon for starters and then later I made two pizzas, one duck, one vegetarian and a few people have asked for the recipes. Firstly though, what a rip off, I had seen these cooked duck breasts advertised on tv and thought it would be a quick and easy way to prepare duck. When I finally found them in my supermarket I was quite suprised at the price $14.70 but the breast looked quite big and I needed it so I bought it. You can imagine my disgust when I peeled back the sticker at home and found instead of one large duck breast, two teeny weeny duck breasts. Very clever but sneaky packaging! For the record they were super easy to prepare, peel off sticker, whack in microwave, remove from container, thinly slice, delicious.

Basic Pizza Dough Recipe
Starter:
3 tablespoons of dried yeast (usually about one packets worth)
½ cup wholemeal flour
½ cup lukewarm water

Dough:
1 cup of lukewarm water
6 tablespoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon of salt
3 ½ cups of plain flour

Start by combining the ingredients for the starter in a large bowl, stir until mixed and then cover with a dishtowel and leave to stand for 30 minutes in a warm place.

Retrieve the bowl and add remaining ingredients and mix well. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes. You might need to keep flouring the surface to stop the dough from sticking. It should end up soft and pliant.

Place the dough into a well oiled bowl and cover with a slightly damp dishcloth and put it back into the warm area to rise and double in size in about two hours.

Cut into two and form into balls. Roll them out into rough circular shapes with a rolling pin and transfer to a well floured baking tray for preparation, flatten out with your fingertips, and add your choice of toppings.

Bake in a hot oven (220 degrees C) for about 20 minutes until the edges are golden and the cheese is melty.

Hoisin Duck Pizza with spring onions and cucumber
Ingredients:
Hoisin sauce
Cooked and sliced duck breast
Thinly sliced spring onions, about 4
1 finely sliced and jullienned cucumber, without the seeds
Mozzarella cheese

Roll out your pizza dough and transfer to your baking tray. Smear liberally with hoisin sauce, about two tablespoons. Spread the duck slices out evenly, scatter over the green onions and then sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the top, you don’t need much cheese for this flavour pizza.

Baked in a hot 200 degree oven until the cheese is melty and browned.

Remove from the oven and drizzle over another tablespoon of hoisin and sprinkle the cucumber over. Serve immediately and be prepared to make another one straight away, its that good!
