    Chef floWer's Note:

    Bocconcini means small mouthfuls of cheese they are semi-soft, white and rind less unripened mild cheese and have a spongy texture. Originally made only from the milk of water buffaloes but cows milk is used now. Bocconcini are now available in supermarkets and packaged in whey or water. The originally recipe asked for 3 x 250 gram of cherry tomatoes but I thought it's a bit excessive as the 14 cm pizza can hold only about eight tomatoes. I topped ours with basil as I found rocket a little bitter. You welcome to skip the dough and use store buy a pizza bases or Lebanese bread, it's up to you. This recipe came from Sunday Hearld Sun, Sunday Magazine on 18 March 2007, it's a Donna Hay recipe

    2. 2
      Place the flour and salt in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the yeast mixture and oil stirring with a butter knife until a dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic.

      Great early dinner for us tonight. I used a pre made pizza base and lots of mini boconcini balls cut in half. I did not use rocket but spinach shredded from the garden and also threw in a few mushrooms. Very enjoyable !!

      I made focaccia and went with that as the pizza base and used this topping. It was delicious. I had bought fresh mozzarella this morning and this was a great recipe to use it in as all the ingredients were so complementary. Loved the rocket - really packed a punch in the taste.

      Outstanding delicious oh so tasty gooey fun. Another unbearably hot day in early September. The farm is dry, no one felt like cooking in the hot kitchen so we came upon this treasure. I followed this exactly, except I put the pizza on the grill so as to not heat the kitchen even further. I had already grabbed some Bocconcini from our local Wegmans. I had some fresh basil and some special dark lettuce and of course the obvious abundance of large cherry tomatoes. I had to quick and grab a picture before the whole pizza was gone. Ironically, I had already made pizza dough this morning so this was a perfect delicious treat, to finish a hard, but satisfying day on the farm. Thank you so much Chef floWer, as always you have a winner!
