List of ingredients for Sous vide hoisin duck pizza

* 1 pack Gressingham duck breast portions (2 x 125g duck breasts)
* 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
'''for the pizza'''

* 1 portion pizza dough
* 30 ml Hoisin sauce
* 1 portion Pizza dough
* 2 sliced sous vide duck breasts
* 8 cherry tomatoes
* 2 balls of Mozzarella cheese
* Sea salt
* Freshly ground black pepper
* 2 teaspoons Chilli oil

* Vacuum seal the Duck breasts together with 1 tablespoon easpoon of Hoisin sauce
* Cook in a Sous vide bath for 3 hours at 61C [141F]
* Remove from the vacuum bag, discarding the Sauce, it will have done its job and flavoured the Meat.
* Slice the duck breast and lay on a paper towel to remove any excess water - these packaged duck breasts seem to be pumped full of water
* Dust your work surface with Fine yellow cornmeal
* Divide the Pizza dough into two and roll out into two thin 25.5 cm (10 inch) Pizzas
* You can leave them in a Warm place for an hour or so to rise. I quite like them cooked immediately they are rolled out for a more crispy finish.
* Prick the Pizza all over with a fork. This prevents it puffing up too much and burning while it is cooking
* With a deft move, slide the Pizza from the Pizza peel, on to the preheated Pizza stone.
* Cook on one side only for about 2 minutes or until lightly Browned.
* Repeat for the other side.
* Remove from the Oven and cover the pizza base with a good drizzle of hoisin sauce
* Crumble a ball of mozzarella cheese over the pizza
* Top with the sliced duck and 4 halved cherry tomatoes
* Season with salt, pepper a drizzle of chilli oilolive
* Return to the Oven and bake until the Cheese is nicely melted. This should take about 4 minutes under a grill on a pizza stone, if oven baking, about 15 minutes in the middle of the oven.
* Repeat for the second Pizza.
* Keep the first Pizza warm at the bottom of the Oven whilst you make the second.
Once the pizzas had been cooked a lot of water was released from the duck. I just mopped this up with a paper towel and the pizza was still fabulous. Fresh duck breasts would not do this.
