Pizza con zucca voilina, cipolla rossa, cavolo nero, Dolcelatte e noci
Butternut Squash, Red Onion, Cavolo Nero & Dolcelatte Pizza With Walnuts

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious butternut squash recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my butternut squash, red onion, cavolo nero & dolcelatte pizza with walnuts for you to enjoy.

I wanted to try something different from a traditional pizza topping and I’m glad I did, as this pizza is delicious. The sweetness of the butternut squash works perfectly with the earthy cavolo nero, and the walnuts give added texture. When making this pizza for my vegan friends, I use a little tomato pizza sauce on the base and pile on all the other toppings minus the Dolcelatte. Serve with a green salad.

Step By Step

  1. To make the dough, put the flour in a large bowl. Add the yeast to one side of the bowl and the salt to the other. Make a well in the centre and add the oil then gradually pour in 280ml of warm water.
  2. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, mix together thoroughly to create a wet dough. Turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic.
  3. Shape the dough into a round and place in a large oiled bowl. Brush the top with a little oil and cover with cling film. Leave to rest at room temperature for 20–25 minutes.

Torta di Pane al CioccolatoChocolate and Rum Bread & Butter Pudding

To tell you the truth I am such a big fan of bread and butter pudding that I had to create my own version of this great dish. The rum with the chocolate is absolutely divine and with a pinch of cinnamon, it's a marriage made in heaven. My only tip for this recipe is to make sure that it rests into the fridge for at least six hours before cooking – this will give you a fantastic soufflé effect when...

CuccioloneChocolate Ice Cream Sandwich

Chocolate ice cream sandwiched between two cookies – what more do you need from life?! Kids love cucciolone, and in my experience they really enjoy getting involved in making them too. You can use any cookies you like for cucciolone. Here I used choc chip cookies, which worked very well. I’ve also tried the same recipe with peanut and caramel cookies and it was delicious.

Zuppa Di Porri E RucolaLeek, Potato And Rocket Soup

One of my favourite British recipes has to be leek and potato soup. Such a simple recipe but with a unique balance of flavours. I decided to add rocket leaves to this fantastic soup, which adds a peppery flavour to the dish. Do serve this soup with my home-made garlic croutons, you are going to love it! Make sure that the consistency of the soup is not too runny and use fresh leeks for the best results.
