Homemade Pizza and Chocolate Mousse

The Kitchenaid is getting used at every opportunity in Katie’s kitchen this week. Saturday night hubby and I made pizza and let the Kitchenaid do her stuff with the dough. Success!

For dessert I made chocolate mousse, something I hadn’t made before. More success!

Basic Pizza Dough
Donna Hay

1 teaspoon dry yeast
pinch  sugar
2/3 cup  lukewarm water
2 cups plain (all-purpose) flour
pinch teaspoon fine salt
1 tablespoon olive oil

Combine the yeast, sugar and water in a bowl. Set aside in a warm place for 10 minutes or until bubbles appear. Place the flour, oil and salt in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the yeast mixture and stir until it comes together. Knead until dough is soft and elastic. Place dough in oiled bowl, cover, set in warm place to rise until doubled in size.

Chocolate Mousse
Donna Hay

200g dark chocolate, chopped
75g butter, chopped
4 eggs, separated
1 cup single or pouring cream
2 tablespoons icing sugar

Place the chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat and stir until melted and smooth.
Pour mixture into a bowl and add the egg yolks, one at a time, beating until well combined. Set aside.
Place the cream in a bowl and whip until soft peaks form. Set aside.
Place the eggs white in a bowl and whisk until soft peaks form. Sift over icing sugar and whisk until mixture is thick and glossy.
Gently fold the cream through the chocolate mixture, the fold the egg whites through.
Spoon into bowls and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Serves 6-8
