5 Cheese Grape Walnut Pizza

5 Cheese Grape Walnut Pizza

5 Cheese Pizza – The post title means five cheese grape walnut pizza in Italian!  I adore this pizza – it’s definitely my go to flavour combo when I make homemade pizza.  The first time I had this kind of pizza was while I was pregnant with Noelle at a wonderful neighbourhood pub near my work… what pregnant woman doesn’t love wild and unusual food fusions. They baked it in a wood fired oven.  I just loved the how the sweet and savoury flavours and the saltiness from the cheese all blended together.

After I had Noelle I still craved that pizza but going out to restaurants just didn’t happen while I had a baby/toddler so I had to improvise. I decided to make my own homemade version. Here it is:

Crust Ingredients (makes enough dough for one 9″ x 13″ pan)

  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose or bread flour
  • 1 tsp dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Crust Instructions: 

  1. Place warm water and salt into a mixing bowl. Add yeast and a cup of the flour, and stir. Add remaining flour (2/3 cup) and stir or knead into a sticky dough, adding additional water if needed. Allow dough to rest in bowl covered with a clean towel, for a minimum 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425-degrees.
  3. Oil or butter a 9″ x 13″  pan, and then gently spread the dough thinly over the pan.
  4.  Bake pizza in oven for 4 minutes, take out and let cool for a few minutes. Add toppings and return to the oven for another 8-10 minutes or until top is browned and bubbly, and crust is slightly browned.

Toppings (put as much or as little of this as you’d like):

  • Butter with garlic powder as the base
  • Grapes cut in half
  • Walnut pieces
  • Cheeses: Mozzarella, Provolone, Asiago, Feta and Blue Cheese
  • Steak Spice sprinkled on top
