Friday Night Takeaway – Homemade Pizza

2016-03-11 19.53.47

I love pizza……….and always make my own, that way I can make it a bit healthier and not feel guilty eating it. Here are two different toppings we done this weekend. I also used my pizza stone to crisp the bottom of my pizza.

Makes 2 large pizza bases

For the Pizza Base:-

200g White Flour

200g Wholemeal Flour

7g yeast sachet

300ml warm water

1 tbsp golden caster sugar

1 tsp salt

Olive oil

Pepper to taste

  1. Sift the flours into a bowl along with the salt. Make a well in the middle.
  2. Add the yeast to the warm water and sugar, stir and let sit for 10 mins.
  3. Meanwhile pre-heat oven to 220 deg or Pizza setting, if you have one.
  4. If you have a pizza stone, preheat.
  5. Little at a time add the yeast water to the flour and mix in until you get  dough like mixture.
  6. Put a little olive oil on your worktop and knead the dough for about 10 mins, stretching all the time until elastic like.
  7. Prove the dough for about 1 hour or until double in size. Cut dough into 2 parts and wrap in cling film, refrigerate for about 1/2hr or overnight. (I find doing this make the dough easier to roll out)
  8. Roll out to desired thickness and size. Prick with a fork so it doesn’t rise too much and cook gently at 220 deg for 5-10 mins.
  9. Base now ready for toppings.

 

Tomato sauce topping:-

1 400g chopped tin tomatoes

1 garlic clove – chopped

1 handful of basil

salt and pepper

  1. Gently cook the garlic and basil with salt n pepper. Add in the tin tomatoes and heat through for about 15 mins. Ready to serve.
