Pizza From My Garden

I am really proud of this dish not that this is something  fancy ,but because all the ingredients I have used here are from my small veggie garden . The place I moved to recently has a little space to do my vegetable gardening . I was not very fond of gardening , but now I am so excited to do it , every morning when I wake up the first thing I do is go and have a look at what has grown . Except for the cheese and olive oil everything on here is home made . I know you guys can't see me but I am beaming with pride ear to ear : D . so here goes....................


for the base 

1 cup warm water
2 tbsp olive oil
1 and 1/2 cup unbleached white flour
1 and 1/2 cup of wholemeal flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp yeast

for the topping

1 cup of cherry tomatoes
a handful of mint, basil, rosemary, thyme and parsley
2 tbsp olive oil ( good quality )
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup feta cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese


Mix all the ingredients for the dough and set aside in a greased bowl and cover with greased plastic wrap to rise for about 1 hour . Knock back the dough again and leave to rise for about 30 min. If you have a bread machine , then add the ingredients in the order given and set it on dough cycle.
Halve the cherry tomatoes and add it in a bowl .
To this add the oil , salt and pepper and the herbs and set it aside for half hour .
Divide the dough in half , you can save it in the fridge .
Use one half and roll the dough into any shape you want . Stretch it as thinly as possible , it will be much crisper.
Spread the tomato mixture evenly on top .
Crumble the feta cheese and sprinkle it all over .
Top with the parmesan cheese .
Bake in a preheated 180 c oven for about 15 min .

P.S : I forgot this , it tasted super !!!!!!!!!!!! ;P
