Kick-off April with a poured pizza which is made from a batter instead of a traditional pizza dough for a thin crust similar to a flat bread. Pizza bianca (‘white pizza’) is simply a pizza without tomato sauce. This version features Canadian mascarpone and blue cheeses with sausage and rapini, but you can make and dress it any way you like all year, using seasonal local ingredients that suit your taste. This is one of 15 exceptional recipes found in the 2021 Milk Calendar.

Instructions

Step 1

Drizzle oil in large, cast iron skillet to coat, then sprinkle cornmeal all over and place in cold oven. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

Step 2

In a blender, combine flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, oregano, eggs and milk. Blend for about 2 minutes on medium until smooth. Once oven reaches temperature, remove skillet with oven mitts, pour batter into skillet and return to oven. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 3

Spread mascarpone over base and sprinkle with rapini, sausage, blue cheese and onion. Return to oven and bake for 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Sprinkle with hot pepper flakes, if using, before serving.

Cook’s Tip

A 10 or 12 inch (25 or 20 cm) cast iron skillet will work for this recipe. You can whisk the batter together if you do not have a blender.
