Home made pizza


It might not be a perfect circle, but this is my home made pizza.

I made the dough by mixing:
300g of flour (50% white and 50% wholemeal) with
a pinch of salt
a generous teaspoon of dried yeast
a tablespoon olive oil
200ml of warm water

Make a dough, and knead for 5 minutes. You don’t need to leave the dough to rise, especially if you’re going for thin crust. This makes enough dough for 2 pizzas, with about a quarter left over.

To make the tomato base (for 2) I use:
– half a tin of chopped tomatoes
– a squeeze of tomato puree
– a crushed clove of garlic
– a pinch of dried chilli
– around 5 large shredded basil leaves
– salt & pepper

On top of the tomato base, put whatever toppings you like! I’ve gone for cheese, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and onion.
