A Four-Cheese Symphony: A Celebration of Gooey Goodness in Vientiane

Ah, the four-cheese pizza. A timeless classic, a symphony of melty, creamy, tangy, and sharp, woven together on a canvas of crispy, golden crust. It’s a dish that transcends borders and unites palates under one glorious banner of cheesy deliciousness. And in Vientiane, where culinary influences dance a vibrant tango, our four-cheese pizza is no mere afterthought – it’s a masterpiece.

A Quartet of Dreams:

Our ode to cheese begins with a foundation of Mozzarella, the maestro of the cheese world. Stretchy, gooey, and ever-so-slightly sweet, it forms the base of our cheesy harmony, providing a gentle canvas for the bolder notes to come. Next, we introduce the Gorgonzola, the pungent, blue-veined baritone of the bunch. Its assertive aroma and creamy texture add a touch of sophistication and depth, urging your taste buds to sit up and take notice. Then comes the Parmesan, the high-pitched soprano, its sharp, nutty notes cutting through the richness with a refreshing zing. Finally, we sprinkle on a touch of Ricotta, the delicate tenor, adding a subtle sweetness and creamy lightness that balances the symphony perfectly.

Beyond the Cheese:

But a great pizza is more than just its cheese, it’s a marriage of textures and flavors. Our crust, hand-crafted with fresh ingredients and a hint of sourdough tang, provides the perfect platform for the cheesy melody to unfold. It’s thin and crispy on the outside, with a slight chew in the center, offering a satisfying crunch with every bite. And then there’s the sauce, a dance of vibrant tomato notes, simmered with fresh herbs and a touch of garlic, adding a touch of sweetness and acidity that elevates the cheese to new heights.

A Vientiane Twist:

In Vientiane, where culinary influences flow like the Mekong, we bring a touch of local flair to our four-cheese masterpiece. Imagine a drizzle of Laotian nam prik noom, a fiery green chili paste, adding a touch of sweet heat that awakens your senses. Or perhaps a sprinkle of fresh Lao herbs like lemongrass or kaffir lime leaves, infusing the cheese with a touch of citrusy vibrancy. These subtle twists transform our four-cheese pizza from a classic to a local celebration, a nod to the unique tapestry of flavors that call Vientiane home.

Ingredients:

  • For the Dough (makes 2 pizzas):
    • 3 1/2 cups (450g) all-purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil
    • 1 cup (240ml) warm water
  • For the Sauce:
    • 1 (28oz/800g) can crushed tomatoes
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    • Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
    • Salt and pepper to taste
  • For the Cheese:
    • 1 cup (125g) shredded mozzarella cheese
    • 1/2 cup (60g) crumbled gorgonzola cheese
    • 1/4 cup (60g) grated parmesan cheese
    • 1/4 cup (60g) ricotta cheese
  • Optional Toppings:
    • Fresh basil leaves
    • Laotian nam prik noom (green chili paste)
    • Fresh kaffir lime leaves
    • Leek or spring onions

Instructions:

  1. Dough Magic: In a large bowl, combine flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix in olive oil, then gradually add warm water until a soft dough forms. Knead for 5-7 minutes on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic. Divide the dough in half, form into balls, and place them in greased bowls, covered with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.

     
  2. Simmering Symphony: While the dough rises, prepare your vibrant sauce. In a saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in crushed tomatoes, oregano, and red pepper flakes (if using). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened.

  3. Preheat for Perfection: Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C). While the oven heats, dust a flat surface with flour and roll out each dough ball into a 12-inch circle.

  4. Spread the Love: Spoon your simmering sauce onto each pizza dough, leaving a 1-inch border.

  5. Cheese the Crown: Sprinkle on the mozzarella, gorgonzola, parmesan, and ricotta cheeses, creating a glorious tapestry of cheesy goodness.

  6. Get Creative: If desired, add your optional toppings like fresh basil leaves, a drizzle of nam prik noom, chopped kaffir lime leaves, or thinly sliced leeks or spring onions.

  7. Bake to Bliss: Slide your cheesy creations into the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly and melted.

  8. Slice and Savor: Remove your pizzas from the oven and let them cool slightly before slicing. Gather your friends and family, grab a slice, and dive into the symphony of gooey goodness that is your Vientiane four-cheese masterpiece!

Vientiane Flair:

Remember, you can add a unique Vientiane twist to your four-cheese pizza by utilizing local ingredients like nam prik noom, kaffir lime leaves, or even a touch of Laotian fish sauce in the sauce. Experiment and embrace the vibrant culinary tapestry of your city!

Cooking Tips:

  • For a chewier crust, let the dough rise for an additional 30 minutes before rolling it out.
  • If you don’t have a rolling pin, you can stretch the dough out with your hands.
  • Use fresh, high-quality ingredients for the best flavor.
