Instructions

FALAFEL*

  • Soak chickpeas in water for 24 hours. Rinse. Add to food processor.
  • Chop onion, garlic, parsley and add to food processor. Add baking soda, salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, cardamom and cayenne pepper. Mix until well blended.
  • Cover mix and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Make falafel using 1½ tbsp of mix per ball.
  • In cast iron pan bring ½" of cooking oil to medium heat. Cook falafel 1-2 minutes each side, or until golden brown. Remove from heat, set aside to cool.

YOGURT SAUCE*

  • Mix yogurt, lemon juice, cumin and salt. Add to squeeze bottle.

WILD PIZZA DOUGH (1 hour)

  • Make your dough by mixing the sourdough starter, salt, and bread flour (adding a bit of flour at a time until it takes shape but is still a little sticky).
  • Knead the dough for 30 seconds, flour lightly as needed.
  • Place the wild dough in a 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°F after you finish making your pizza dough).

PIZZA

  • Preheat oven to 550°F with baking steel or pizza stone inside the oven.
  • Grate mozzarella cheese.
  • Dice cucumbers and tomatoes.
  • Flour surface and roll out the dough. Put a floured pizza peel underneath the dough.
  • Add tahini, mozzarella cheese then falafel. Pat down the toppings before putting into the oven.
  • Bake pizza at 550°F for 8-10 minutes, by sliding pizza onto baking steel with pizza peel.
  • Remove pizza from oven with pizza peel. Let cool for 5 minutes. Add yogurt sauce and slice up that pizza!
