Homemade Pizza

Homemade pizza

Last night, we made a homemade pizza. I wanted to share the recipe because it’s so easy – and alternative!

The first time I made the pizza (pictured above), I had a lot of time on my hands – so went all out with the rainbow for the NHS!

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.

How to make the quick & fresh tomato sauce
