Last night, we made a homemade pizza. I wanted to share the recipe because it’s so easy – and alternative!
Ingredients for the pizza
🌟 1 cup yogurt (at room temperature)
🌟 1 & a 1/2 cup your preferred flour
🌟 Splash of your preferred oil
How to make the pizza dough
Pop the 1 & 1/2 cup of flour into a bowl and then add the yogurt. Mix with a spoon.
Top tip: Depending on the type of flour you use, it’s best to keep some surplus flour to add gradually – in order to make a non-sticky dough.
Begin kneading for up to 5 minutes
Grease the bowl that you will be placing the dough in to prove – use a splash of oil.
Cover and leave to rest for up to 1 hour. If you’re in a rush, you can even get it in the oven after just 15 mins of proving.
When you’re ready to eat, pre-heat your oven at 250 degrees before cooking.
For those of you with a wooden pizza slab, pre-heat it at least an hour before.
The next step is to get it into the oven for 8 minutes.
Top tip: keep an eye out for edge of the pizza along with the cheese &/or toppings. No-one wants a burnt pizza.
Toppings I used (as seen in the picture)
🌟 Tomatoes sauce base (from the jar, or homemade)
🌟 Grated cheese
🌟 Mix bell peppers & multicolour cherry tomatoes (to make the rainbow)
🌟 Buffalo mozzarella (for cloud-effect under the rainbow)
Ingredients for making a quick & fresh tomato sauce
🌟 Tinned plum tomato
⭐️ Dried basil
🌟 Chilli flakes
🌟 Dash of sea salt
🌟 Tablespoon olive oil
How to make the quick & fresh tomato sauce
Mash the tinned plum tomato with juices in a bowl, adding the tablespoon of oil, your preferred seasoning along with sea salt.
Keep aside, so flavours marinade – ready to use whenever & however you’d like.
