All-Purpose Flour (3 cups)
to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook.
In a separate bowl, combine
Active Dry Yeast (1/2 Tbsp)
Water (1 cup)
and stir together. Set aside for a few minutes until the yeast starts to bubble.
Add the yeast to the dough and turn the mixer onto a low setting. Knead the dough on low speed for 5 to 6 minutes.
Sea Salt (1 Tbsp)
Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1 tsp)
and continue kneading for 2 more minutes.
Remove the bowl from the stand. Shape the dough into a round ball and set in the bowl. Pour the
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1 Tbsp)
over the dough and turn the dough over until it is well coated with olive oil.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 12 hours. It will double in bulk and start to develop a yeasty aroma.
The dough is ready to use at this point, but for a more flavorful dough, punch it down and reform into a tight ball. Put the dough back in the bowl, cover and refrigerate for another 12 hours.
Remove the dough from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for about half an hour.
Meanwhile, prepare the toppings. Separate the
Pancetta (1 cup)
slices so they are easily accessible (they tend to stick).
into thin slices. If you want to be fancy, use a biscuit cutter to cut the cantaloupe into "pepperoni rounds".
Baby Arugula (14 cups)
into a salad bowl and set aside. In a small bowl combine the
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (3 Tbsp)
Red Wine Vinegar (1 Tbsp)
Dijon Mustard (1 tsp)
Garlic (1 clove)
Sea Salt (1/2 tsp)
Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp)
Whisk to combine and set aside. (Don't dress the greens until you're ready to serve -- otherwise they will wilt.)
Preheat the grill to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Dust your work surface with flour. Separate the dough into 4 equal portions and roll each one into a ball.
Place one ball of dough on the work surface and use a rolling pin, lightly dusted with flour to roll the dough into a disc about 1/4 - 1/3 inch thick. Set the dough onto a baking sheet and continue rolling out the other balls of dough.
Assemble these ingredients by the grill: pizza dough, olive oil (and pastry brush), pancetta, cantaloupe,
Mozzarella Cheese (4 cups)
Red Onion (1/4)
Parmesan Cheese (1 cup)
Place a pizza dough on the grill. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and quickly brush the oil over the dough with a pastry brush.
Lay one quarter of the pancetta over the dough in an even layer. Top with a quarter of the cantaloupe, mozzarella, onions and parmesan cheese.
Close the lid on the grill and cook for 6-7 minutes. Monitor the grill in case of any flare ups. Use a large spatula to transfer the pizza to a baking sheet or pizza peel.
Continue with the remaining pizzas.
Add the dressing to the arugula and toss. Serve pizzas individually with a nest of arugula on top, or cut into wedges and top each wedge with greens. Enjoy!
