Making Pizzas?!

February 18, 2019

Hey! I haven’t made pizzas since I was a kid, so its about time – well now I actually have an idea of how to make them. The beauty of pizzas is that it is very difficult to get them completely wrong, perfect for a amateur chef like me. Here’s what I did:

Dough Ingredients

6 oz (175 g) plain white soft flour

1 level teaspoon salt

1 level teaspoon dried yeast

½ level teaspoon caster sugar

1 tablespoon olive oil


1) Sift the flour, salt, yeast and sugar into a bowl and make a well in the centre of the mixture, then add the olive oil and pour in 4 fl oz (120 ml) hand-hot water.

2) Now mix to a dough. Wipe the bowl clean, adding a spot more water if there are any dry bits left, and transfer it to a flat work surface.

3) Knead the dough for a few minutes (it should also be springy and elastic). Place the dough into a slightly oiled bowl covered with cling film. Leave until it has doubled in size – this can take just over an hour, I left it overnight.

4) Roll the dough into an evenly thick shape (you may need some flour to avoid sticking) and place on greaseproof paper.

  • The next step is to add whatever toppings you want, in all honesty this is the easiest bit. I added a passata base, but you could add BBQ sauce. Next add mozzarella for that cheesy effect, I added grated and a chopped ball. To this I added prosciutto, chorizo, mushrooms, salami and chilli.
  • Bake in the oven at gas mark 6 (200 degrees Celsius) for 12-14 minutes for the perfect pizza, then enjoy!

    Oh, I’ve never thought about making my own pizzas before, especially from complete scratch like this! This is definitely something I’m going to get my boyfriend to do with me 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!
