Pizza recipe for Tessa

For Tessa - and for anyone who doesn't want to fork out unnecessary quids on either takeaway pizza, or 'cardboard' frozen pizzas!

You will need:  for two bases

Self-raising flour, two cupfulls
1 tsp salt
Olive or veg oil - a good splash (this is not an exact science) plus enough to oil your cooking pans
Warm water

Put flour and salt in a large bowl.  Add a good splash of oil and mix with a fork.  Add warm water and mix with your hand until just combined.
Heat oven to 180 degrees.
Oil two metal pans: any shape are fine, I use round 14" ones because that's what I have.

Divide the dough between the metal pans and press the dough out thinly to cover the base.
Leave to rest while you prep your topping.

Tonight we had: 
Sliced onion
Sliced tomatoes
Sliced mushrooms
Thinly sliced pepper 
Thinly sliced chilli
Grated cheese

Top the pizzas and bake for 15-20 minutes.

I forgot to photograph dinner tonight: sorry! 


  1. Love a home made pizza. Looks lovely. I have nice recipe which is done in a frying pan and then grilled. It is a Delia Smith recipe out of the cooking for one person book but originally the idea came from Elizabeth David. I make it a lot. No yeast, like yours.

  2. LOVE home made pizza. A million times tastier than shop ones and a fraction of the price! I'm not surprised it all got scoffed before you had a chance to photo it! :-)
