Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Make the pizza dough - it's best to make this, controversially, in a food processor! Add the salt and flour and mix until all combined, then add the olive oil, yeast and warm water.
  3. Keep the food processor going until the dough forms a ball that spins round on top of the blade. Keep going for 30 seconds then remove - you should have a smooth, slightly sticky dough.
  4. Allow to rise for around 40 mins while you make the mac & cheese.
  5. Fry the bacon pieces until crispy then add the chopped jalapenos and fry for a few seconds, then add the cayenne and the butter and allow to foam up. Stir in then butter to make a paste and cook gently for a minute or so before adding the milk in stages, allowing the mixture to come to a simmer and thicken before each addition. Add the mustard.
  6. When you have a smooth sauce turn off the heat and add the cooked macaroni and the cheeses. Stir together and allow to cool.
  7. Oil a skillet and gently press the dough to the edges - leave a rim as the dough is going to rise up around the mac and cheese.
  8. Make sure the mac is cold and spoon it onto the dough. Cover with a towel and leave to rise somewhere warm.
  9. When the dough has risen around the pasta, then place the whole thing in the oven and bake until the sides are a dark golden brown and the whole thing slides easily out of the skillet. Enjoy!
