Leek and Roquefort Pizza Bread

I am not sure I want to eat this any time soon as I overdosed on cheese, especially Roquefort, in France. But it looks like a lovely recipe. And my cheese ban will soon be over as I can’t resist the soft, salty, creaminess of Roquefort for long! This is another @riverfordveg recipe.

300g bread flour
7g sachet yeast
1 tsp salt
180ml warm water
1.5 tbsp olive oil

3-4 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove
1 green chilli, halved
25g butter
2 small leeks, sliced
30g parmesan
100g grated mozzarella
2 tbsp each of finely chopped parsley and oregano
60g Roquefort or other blue cheese, crumbled

Begin by infusing the oil with the chilli and garlic. Then make the dough. Add the yeast and salt to the flour and then add the oil. Add enough warm water to make a soft dough and knead lightly for 10 mins or so. Leave to prove for about an hour then knock back and divide in to four.

Meanwhile cook the leeks in the butter for about 10 mins. Pre-heat the oven and stretch the dough out on to two baking sheets/pizza stones. Brush with the infused oil and scatter the herbs over the surface. Add the leeks and then finish with the cheeses. Bake for 12-14 mins till golden and then scoff.
