Ingredients


All Purpose Flour- 2 1/2 cups

Salt- 1 1/2 tsp

Brown Sugar- 1 tsp

Yeast- 1 tbsp

Oil- 2 fl oz

Warm Water- 8 fl oz

Ripe Plantain - 1 lb

Vegetable Oil for frying - 16 fl oz

Method


In a bowl, mix flour, salt and sugar.

Mix in yeast.

Make a well in the center of the bowl

Add oil and warm water.

Knead for 5 to 10 minutes until a smooth ball of dough forms.

Place in a greased bowl and cover with a damp cloth.

Set aside and allow to rest and rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 400F.

Peel plantain and slice into 1/2” rounds.

Pour oil into frying pan and heat over high heat.

Once heated, fry plantain until golden, ensuring not to burn.

Place on a paper towel and allow excess oil to drain off.

Slice into thin strips and set aside.

Once dough has doubled in size, remove from bowl and place on a lightly dusted (flour) counter.

Divide dough in two, place one to the side and roll out the other into a round disc 1/4” thick.

Place on greased pizza tray.

Top with sauce, cheese, pork & plantain.

Place in oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes; ensuring to rotate halfway through.
