Perfect for a Friday night!

Here is what you will need:

FOR THE BASE

    300g strong bread flour
    1 tsp instant yeast (from a sachet or a tub)
    1 tsp salt
    1 tbsp olive oil , plus extra for drizzling

FOR THE TOMATO SAUCE

    100ml passata
    handful fresh basil or 1 tsp dried
    1 garlic clove , crushed

FOR THE TOPPING

    125g of mozzarella , sliced or grated
    handful cherry tomatoes , halved
    any other toppings you'd like!!

Step 1:

You can make the passata from scrath but II bought some and then added ingredients for my own flavouring, i.e. Oregano.

Add the garlic here too.

Step 2:

Make the base:
Put the flour into a large bowl, then stir in the yeast and salt. Pour in 200ml warm water and the olive oil and bring together with a wooden spoon until you have a soft, fairly wet dough.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 mins until smooth. I like the crust thin, so for this really smooth it out!

Step 3:

Add the passata and cheese to the pizza base.

Then you can let your creative juices flow :)

Step 4:

My favourite pizza was made with cherry tomatoes, jalapenos, green and red bell peppers, prosciutto and salami.

You can use anything! I even made a tuna, olive and onion one.

Thanks,

Linda
Would it not be better to let the dough prove for a while for a lighter base?
Hi Cveale,<br><br>I hadn't thought about that.<br>It would give it a lighter base, but here I was going more for quick and easy.<br><br>Definitely something to try for next time :)
I never said it would work. But theres a good chance it will.
