Pizza, a firm favourite for many people whether as a snack, on picnics or enjoyed amongst friends at a relaxed dinner party. Even better with homemade dough.
- 1 tbsp of dried yeast
- Pinch of salt
- 140ml warm water
- 180g plain flour
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 tsp of dried basil
- 18 pepperoni slices
- 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
- 2 tbsp of tomato purée
- 1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella
- 1 finely chopped onion
- 2 cloves of garlic sliced thinly
Pizza Base - Mix salt and yeast together in a jug with the water. Place flour in a bowl, make a well in the centre and add the water mixture along with the oil.
Use a wooden spoon to mix everything to create a wet dough. Put on floured surface and knead for 5mins.
Place in greased bowl and cover with tea towel. Leave at room temperature to rise for 30minutes (should double in size).
Roll out into a circular pizza, and lightly prick the base with a fork several times.
Pizza Topping - Spread tomato purée over the base. Add chopped tomatoes on top then add onion and garlic.
Sprinkle over cheese and arrange Pepperoni. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle on basil.
Place pizza on oiled baking sheet.
Cook at 200°C for 20 minutes or until the cheese bubbles and it is golden brown.
