Chutney Pizza with Rocket – Farm Shop

The spicy, sweet and sour, sometimes hot and spicy sauce from Indian cuisine on an Italian pizza? Oh yes. But of course only from local ingredients.

Cooking is really fun when it creates something new that surprises the taste buds. Sweet combined with salt creates a surprise in the mouth. Figuring out which ingredients go together and why is an art in itself. Okay, sweet-spicy-fruity chutney on a pizza is not common. But hey. We (well, not all of us) have gotten used to the Hawaiian pizza. And pineapple on pizza is much more exotic. Pizza is the ideal playground for trying out flavor combinations. And to drink? Here, too, the recommendation applies: whatever is good and tastes good.

Chutney pizza

  • 500 grams of wheat flour

  • 20 g of yeast
  1. Oven 220 °C (or pizza setting) top/bottom heat.
