RECIPE: Homemade Pizza

I hate buying frozen pizzas. I don’t even like ordering pizza in. I don’t know what it is, perhaps something to do with my being Italian in a former life. Well, I do gesticulate wildly when I speak, do I not?

As you know, I have zero time for the likes of waiting for dough to rise, so I love that yeast-free dough is A) better for your bum and B) requires no rising time. Recipe below!


  225g self-raising flour | 1/2 teaspoon salt | 60g butter | 150ml milk

  1. IMG_2202Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
  2. Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Pour the milk into the bowl and mix to a soft dough.
  3. Knead the dough and roll out into a large circle about 1cm thick. Place on oiled/buttered baking tray.



Well, you can obviously add whatever toppings you like! I went for passata tomato sauce for the base, followed by as much mozzarella cheese as I could squeeze on; chopped ham, tomatoes, mushrooms and lashed some dried oregano on top.

Bung in the oven for about 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and shove in mouth – enjoy!!
