Pizza

Everyone loves Pizza. Just the combination of a herby tomato sauce topped with shed loads of cheese is delicious, but chuck in some extra few toppings like pepper, sweetcorn or whatever you fancy and you're onto a winner.

Although this recipe does take a bit of time as you need to wait for the dough to prove, I promise you it's simple and in my opinion way better than Dominos or Pizza Hut which cost a heck of a lot more money, than if you were to make it yourself.


Topped with Peppers, JalapeƱo and Sweetcorn 
Ingredients

Dough

  • 5 Cups Flour
  • 1 Packet Yeast
  • 4 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1/3 cup Oil
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 Egg
Tomato Sauce
  • Tin of tomatoes
  • 1 fresh tomato
  • 1/2 a diced pepper
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 green chilli
  • Pinch of Paprika, oregano, basil and any other herbs
  • Pinch of salt
  • Dash of Olive oil
  • 1 clove of Garlic

Method
  1. For the dough, mix the dry ingredients together then add the rest of the ingredients and form into a ball of dough. I did this with my Kenwood and used a dough hook but you could just use your hands. Let it rise in a warm place until doubled in size
  2. In the meantime, blend all the ingredients for the tomato sauce and transfer to a pot to cook through. Cook until thickened and let it cool
  3. Once the dough has risen, turn onto a table and divide into 5 pieces. Roll these out to fit your pizza pan. 
  4. Spoon the cool tomato mix onto the Pizza dough, add the cheese and any other toppings you like
  5. Leave again to rise for half an hour and then bake at gas 6 for around 20 minutes or until golden and enjoy!
