Instructions

WILD PIZZA DOUGH (1 hour)

  • Make your dough by mixing the sourdough starter, bread flour (adding a bit of flour at a time until it takes shape but is still a little sticky) and salt together. 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).

CAJUN CHICKEN*

  • Make cajun seasoning: mix together oregano, thyme, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Rub chicken with seasoning and marinate for 30 minutes.
  • Cook chicken in cast iron pan (or any frying pan, cast iron just gives meat a better sear) for 5-7 minutes, each side until no longer pink inside (internal temperature of 165°F). Remove chicken, let cool slightly and slice.

HOLY TRINITY*

  • Chop celery, onion and green pepper. Cook in cast iron pan for 8-10 minutes, stirring often. Deglaze by adding ¼ cup of cooking sherry and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.

PIZZA

  • Preheat oven to 550°F with baking steel or pizza stone inside the oven for 1 hour.
  • Grate mozzarella cheese.
  • Flour surface and roll out the dough, flour lightly as needed. Put a floured pizza peel underneath the dough.
  • Add tomato sauce, then mozzarella cheese, then holy trinity, and chicken. Pat down toppings.
  • Bake pizza in the oven at 550° F. for 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove pizza from oven with pizza peel and let cool for 5 minutes. Slice it up!
