  • ¼ cup Cherry Syrup
  • 1 tbsp Cornstarch

WILD DOUGH (1 hour)

  • Make your dough by mixing the sourdough starter, flour and salt together (adding a bit of flour at a time until it takes shape but is still a little sticky) and knead the dough for about 30 seconds.
  • Place the dough in lightly floured bowl and cover with a towel, set aside for 1 hour. (The pizza steel or stone needs to preheat for 1 hour as well, so preheat oven to 550 degrees after you finish making your pizza dough)

Rum Ham (3½ hours)

  • Remove stems and halve brussel sprouts.
  • Remove netting from the Smoked Pork Shoulder. Diagonally score the ham with a knife, and insert whole cloves.
  • In a large roasting pan insert a rack, add the ham, thyme and water. Bake @375° F. for 2 hours.
  • Make rum glaze by mixing together spiced rum, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cherry syrup, salt and pepper.
  • Add the brussel sprouts to the roasting pan, and pour half of the glaze onto the ham. Bake for another 30 minutes.
  • Stir the brussel sprouts, pour the remaining glaze on the ham and cook for another 30 minutes.
  • Remove ham from oven (ensure internal temperature is 145° F.) and let rest for 30 minutes. Slice ham into thin 1" x ¼" strips. Remove brussel sprouts.
  • Remove stems from cocktail cherries and halve.

Dijon Rum Sauce (10 min)

  • Strain liquid from roasting pan into a pot and bring to a boil. Mix cornstarch and cold water together, then add to pot. Bring to a boil and reduce until desired consistency.

PIZZA (8-10 min)

  • Preheat oven to 550 degrees F. with baking steel or pizza stone inside the oven for 1 hour.
  • Grate mozzarella cheese.
  • Flour surface and roll out the dough. Put a floured pizza peel underneath the dough. Add sauce, cheese, and toppings. Pat down the toppings before putting into the oven.
  • Bake pizza in the oven at 550 degrees F. for 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove pizza from oven with pizza peel and let cool for 5 minutes.
