- 1⁄2 sachet instant dry yeast
- 80ml warm water
- 220g Gloria Plain Flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Red Seal Fine Salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon white sugar
- 1 tablespoon Red Seal Pure Cooking Oil
- 1⁄2 tablespoon mixed herbs, chopped
- 100ml pizza sauce
- 200g mozzarella cheese, grated
- Toppings of your choice, such as: baby marrow slices, broccoli florets, pepper rings and slices, cherry tomatoes and sliced ham, sliced black olives and thinly sliced carrots
Stir together the yeast and warm water in a small bowl, set aside for 5 minutes. Mix together the Gloria Plain Flour, Red Seal Fine Salt, sugar, dried herbs and Red Seal Pure Cooking Oil in a large bowl. Stir in the yeast water. Knead with the dough on a well- floured surface for about 5 minutes. Shape into a large ball by hand.
Oil two bowls lightly with Red Seal Pure Cooking oil and set aside. Divide the dough into two pieces and roll into balls. Place each ball into the oiled bowls, seam side down, and coat the tops with a little more oil. Top each bowl with plastic wrap or a clean, dry towel and place the dough in a warm place. Let it rise for 2 hours.
Pre-heat oven to 200°C. Line a large baking sheet with non-stick aluminium foil. Place the pizza dough on a well-floured surface, press the dough firmly with your fingers to shape, and stretch gently into a rectangle.
With a round cutter, cut the dough into mini rounds, place the rounds 2cm apart on a baking sheet.Top each pizza with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and create your pizza face with your desired toppings. Ideas for faces: Baby marrow slices, broccoli florets, pepper rings and slices, cherry tomatoes and sliced ham, sliced black olives and thinly sliced carrots.
Bake the pizza faces for 8-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
