Jake’s thin crust pizza with Prosciutto and Cremini mushrooms

Hey everyone!

Here is my absolute favourite thin crust pizza recipe! It is not like any of the pizza that you get from your local pizza place, it is super thin, crispy, and has very little toppings!

I have been making pizza this way for the past 4 years and I have yet to find anyone who doesn’t love this pizza! Make sure you use a pizza stone, this is not optional! It is a requirement!

Pizza dough recipe

Dough Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 – 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Coarse corn meal

Topping Ingredients:

  • 150 grams thin slice Prosciutto
  • 5 Cremini mushrooms, slice thinly
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • Unripened goats cheese
  • Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • Balsamic glaze
  • Small handful fresh basil
  • Olive oil

Preparations/cooking:

  1. Place pizza stone on the lowest rack, preheat the oven to 550 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine 1 1/4 cups of the flour, the yeast, and the salt; add the warm water to the flour mixture. Mix with an electric mixer on low for 30 seconds. Once all the ingredients are mixed, turn on high and mix for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Stir as much of the remaining flour in with a wooden spoon.
  3. Lightly flour a clean surface and knead dough until moderately stiff dough, (around 4-5 minutes). Let it sit for 5 minutes before rolling out.
  4. Cut the dough into 4 equal parts. On a clean, lightly floured surface, roll out as thin as possible, this should make at least a 12″ circle.
  5. Turn a baking sheet upside down and spread 1 tbsp course corn meal on it (this helps the dough slide off the baking pan). Place the dough gently on the baking sheet.
  6. Lightly oil the dough and the spread a thin layer of tomato sauce on top. Top with prosciutto, mushrooms, basil, desired amount of goats cheese, and parmesan. Drizzle on a generous amount of balsamic.
  7. Slide off the pan onto the pizza stone with a spatula.
  8. Cook until the top starts to brown and the crust is crisp (approx. 5-7 minutes).
  9. Remove from the oven and cut, serve immediately!

Triple chocolate brownies

Hey everyone!

So today I decided to post another one of my favourite recipes, Triple chocolate brownies. It is a combination of a few of my brownie recipes that I have collected over the years, but they all had some flaws, so I decided why not combine all the best parts of the recipes! So here you go!

Ingredients:

4 sticks (1 pound) unsalted butter
2 2/3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup dark unsweetened chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate wafers
1 cup semi sweet chocolate wafers
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts (optional)
6 extra large eggs
2 tablespoon instant coffee (optional)
2 tbsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups white sugar
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

Preparations:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Butter and flour a 12″ by 18″ baking pan

Step 1:

In a double boiler, melt the butter, 2 2/3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips and the 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips together. Remove from heat and allow to cool until warm, not hot.

Step 2:

In a large bowl, stir together the eggs, coffee, vanilla, sugar. Try not to beat the mixture, just gently mix until the egg yokes are mixed in.
When the chocolate mixture is still warm, mix the egg mixture and the chocolate together slowly, stirring constantly (you may need an extra person to help with this part). Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.

Step 3:

In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup of flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the chocolate and egg mixture to the flour and mix until combined (don’t over mix or it will become cake like).

Step 4:

In a small bowl combine the white and dark chocolate wafers, walnuts, and 1/4 cup of flour. Mix them together so the flour coats everything, add to the batter. Pour into the baking pan evenly.


Cooking:

Step 1:

Bake for 20 minutes at 350, then remove the pan from the oven and gently tap on a cutting board once or twice to release any air bubble from the batter. Bake for another 14-16 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.

Step 2:

Remove from oven and allow to cool. You can refrigerate the brownies for a few days, but after that its best to put them in the freezer!
