Scale

Ingredients

For the Dough:

  • 2 cups einkorn flour (or alternate flour)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

For the Toppings:

  • 10 ounces ricotta
  • 1/3 cup lightly packed basil leaves
  • 2 peaches, sliced into thin half-moons
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Honey, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. If you have a baking stone, stick it in the oven as it preheats, on the middle rack. If you don’t, just put in a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, combine einkorn flour, chopped basil, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center and add the water and olive oil. Stir the flour into the center with a wooden spoon until a dough forms.
  3. Once it comes together, knead the dough a few times right in the bowl, to create a round ball.
  4. Split the dough up into three pieces of equal size. Roll each one out individually on a piece of parchment paper to a thickness of about ¼ inch and a diameter of about 8 inches if round, or into an oblong shape. Brush with oil and sprinkle with salt.
  5. Bake each round of dough one at a time for about 10 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack.
  6. Top each with about ⅓ of the ricotta, and spread it to coat the surface. Top with basil leaves and peaches. Sprinkle salt and pepper all over the top, and drizzle with honey to taste.
  7. Slice and serve.
