milliliters olive oil
For the Pickled Lettuce
grams mixed lettuce (Romaine, Lolo Rosso, Iceberg)
pieces cloves garlic
milliliters cider vinegar
tablespoon maple syrup
teaspoon red pepper flakes
teaspoon mustard seeds
- Heat the water, vinegar, syrup, mustard seeds, red chilli flakes, and garlic in a sauce pan for 3-5 minutes to render the flavours. Allow to cool to room temperature, then pour over lettuce in a bowl. Press down with a weighted plate for about an hour. Transfer into a pickling jar and refrigerate.
- Set a pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven and heat to 260C/500F for about 45 minutes.
- In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, and olive oil. Slowly add in the 120ml of water until the dough comes into a ball.
- Divide the dough into 12 portions.
- With a floured rolling pin, flatten each portion of dough until about 8” wide. Cut into desired shape and prick all over with a fork.
- Dust the pizza stone of baking pan and transfer the flattened dough onto it.
- Bake for about 2 minutes per side or until crisp.
- Serve with pickled lettuce on the side.
