Pizza is one of those foods that is quite unhealthy, but can be made healthy. As in, the base and the toppings can be substituted for healthier alternatives, such as, a cauliflower case and a homemade tomato sauce. You get the gist… Now this recipe isn’t that healthy, but it’s homemade and tastes really authentic. The pizza is very very big and I would struggle to eat the whole thing in one go, so I decorate half with something I will eat once it’s cooked, and decorate the other half for the next day. Once you’ve made the dough, the cooking time is super quick, so it’s great for a cosy night in!
What you’ll need:
- 7 g of dried yeast.
- 4 tbsp lukewarm water.
- 500 g of strong white flour.
- A pinch of salt and extra for topping.
- 225 ml cool water.
- 2 tbsp olive oil and extra for kneading and glossing.
- Whisk the warm water and yeast in a large bowl until frothy.
- Add the flour, salt and cool water.
- Bring the dough together with your hands.
- Then add the oil and knead for 5 – 10 minutes until smooth and stretchy.
- Add in more oil as you knead, so you can keep the bread moist and stop it from sticking.
- Put the dough in a clean bowl and cover it with cling film. Leave it in a warm dry place until it’s doubled in size (about 30 mins)
- Afterwards, roll it out and cut into a circle of your choice.
- Decorate it with toppings of your desire. I chose; peppers, mozzarella, tomato sauce, pineapple and ham.
- Cook for 7 minutes on 220 degrees c.
