Tasty Pizza

Shop bought pizzas are fine for convenience, but home made are the best if you want the real original taste of Italian style pizza.Well that's what I think. So if you'd like to give it a try follow this recipe as I can assure its been well tried and tested.


500g Strong white flour 
1/2 tsp Salt
3 tsp Dried yeast
2 tbsp Olive oil
360 ml Warm water

1 jar Pasta sauce or passata
2 Shallots
2 tsp Italian dried herbs 
2 Cloves of garlic
175 g Mozzarella
115 g Mushrooms 
1 Long sweet red pepper
115 g Anchovies
200 g Slices of pepperoni  
100 g cheddar cheese (not traditional but gives lovely taste)
and anything else you might fancy on your pizza


Mix flour salt 

Mix yeast with warm /tepid water and after it has foamed up add to flour mix. 

Mix ingredients and then knead for 10 minutes until the mix is elastic.
place dough ball in greased bowl,cover then place in a warm place for 1 to 1 1/2 hours till mix has doubled in size.

Pre heat oven to 200 C ( 400 F or Gas mark 6) 

Divide dough into 3 or 4 balls then stretch out balls to make pizza base.

Place on  greased baking sheets

Then add topping leaving about a 2 cm border around edge of pizza. Don't over do topping as it will make base soggy but even then still tastes great. 

Cook about 20 mins  

After 20 mins remove from the oven and eat ........... yummy.


  1. It just makes me feel hungry - that looks lovely (apart from the mushrooms cos they are a fungus so why would you eat them????!) :D

    1. Its funny you should say that about mushrooms they are there because Bry is not she feels the same about them as you apparently do.
