Chorizo, Mozzarella and Pesto Pizza

Chorizo, Mozzarella and Pesto Pizza
                               
Chablis wines challenged me to come up with the perfect summer pairing to a glass of cool refreshing Chablis and demonstrate how the wine with such a beautiful minerality can fit so well with many summer dishes.

Many people like to enjoy a glass of Chablis at Christmas time, but seem to forget it can also work incredibly well with summer dishes and flavours. For the Chablis blogger challenge I decided to create a light and summery pizza to eat al fresco on a warm summer evening...along with a glass of chilled Chablis.

I made the dough using my usual recipe in the bread maker then rolled it out to within an inch of its life - the thinner the better. I topped the pizza with tomato passata then layed thin slices of chorizo all over the top. Spoonfuls of my fresh homemade wild garlic pesto were then dolloped on before the torn pieces of buffalo mozzarella were put in place. As a final finishing touch I added some teaspoons of caramelised onion chutney and 2 large sun dried tomatoes cut into strips. In a hot oven for 10 minutes and you have the perfect summery pizza. It was really delicious and went beautifully with the Chablis.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
