Stone Fruit Ricotta Flatbread
1 recipe Flourist Sourdough Pizza Dough
400g fresh ricotta
8-10 fresh apricots, peaches, nectarines, or plums (halved or sliced)
1/4 cup honey
Sourdough Pizza Dough
200g Sifted Red Spring Wheat Flour
Cornmeal for cooking the crust
To make the dough, combine the flour, water, and starter in a bowl and mix until combined. Let sit for 30 minutes. Add salt with a small amount of water to dissolve it and mix well. Fold once and let sit for 1 hour. Fold two more times with 1 hour rests in between. After the last rest, transfer to an oiled container and let proof overnight in the fridge.
The following day, divide the dough into two and cover, letting proof for 3 hours. Stretch into a long oval on a floured cutting board.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut the fruit in half (apricots and plums are best for halves, peaches and nectarines are better sliced) and remove the pits. In a bowl, toss the cut fruit with the honey and a couple pinches of Maldon salt. Transfer the apricots to a parchment lined sheet tray and roast in the oven until soft and slightly caramelized. Remove from the oven and set aside. Increase oven heat to 475°F.
Prep the pizza dough by rolling it out roughly into the size of your cast iron skillet (10" recommended). Rolling it on a floured cutting board is ideal as it will make it easier for you to transfer it into your cast iron skillet or pizza stone. Once you have it shaped it and the cast iron pan is preheated, sprinkle the bottom of the pan or the stone with with cornmeal in preparation for the dough.
Lightly olive oil the top of the pizza dough and divide the ricotta between the two pizza doughs. Spread the ricotta evenly between the two prepared doughs and top with fruit, reserving the honey for later. Sprinkle chilli flakes for some nice heat if desired, and sprinkle a pinch of Maldon salt on each.
To bake as you would a pizza, carefully slide the crust into the hot skillet or onto the stone, being extremely careful not to burn yourself. Return the crust to the oven quickly and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the crust is crispy. Remove from oven and drizzle with reserved honey.
Depending on your oven, the cooking time may vary as home ovens can fluctuate in temperature.
