I've made this pizza so many times now and it never fails to please. The kids in particular love it, and it's way healthier than anything shop bought, and way cheaper for you as well!
I keep it simple with cheese, tomato and ham - but you can use anything you want as toppings.
I also make sure I par-bake the base before I add the toppings. I've found this works better and produces less soggy bottoms that way.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 mins
For the dough 300g plain flour
2 tbsp olive oil
Warm water - about 150 ml or enough to make a firm, but bound dough
For the toppings Cheese - I use a combination of Cheddar and Mozarella - approx. a good handful per pizza
Tomato sauce - about half a tin tomatoes per pizza
Ham, mushrooms, approx. 1 handful per topping as desired.
In a mixing bowl add the flour, olive oil, salt, sugar and water and mix to form a moist, firm dough.
Remove from the bowl and knead on a floured surface to stop it sticking. Do this for about 5 mins till the dough is smooth.
Divide the dough into two round balls of equal size - this will be your two pizzas.
Roll the base out to fit your pizza tray for the oven - mine are 30cm/12" and it fits perfectly for this.
Place the two bases on their trays into the oven, at 250C (or basically as hot as your oven will go!) for about 5 to 10 mins max to par-bake the bases. If they go a little brown don't worry - this is fine, but not TOO brown.
Remove from the oven and spread on your tomato sauce. Spread it about with the back of a spoon.
Now top with your favourite toppings and then add plenty of yummy cheese.
Put back in the oven for another 5 to 10 mins until the pizza is lovely and crisp and golden with nice brown melted cheese.
