Roquefort and onion pizza

When I lived in Italy I loved to eat at one particular pizza-house where they used to serve pizza with Gorgonzola and onions and lots and lots of tomato sauce. I would have loved that pizza if not for the tomato sauce. So, having that combination in mind – blue cheese and onion, I created this recipe. I had to change Gorgonzola for Roquefort, which has a deeper taste.

  • Add in the rest of the water and stir well again
  • Gradually adding the flour make a dough. Add the oil and salt at the end
  • Knead the dough thoroughly, shape into a ball, place into a greased container, cover with the cling film and leave in a warm for 1 hour
