The BEST Sunday night tea ever!! Homemade PIZZAS!! :)

So... Happy New Year everybody! I hope you all had an amazing break, feel rested and refreshed ready for the new year! I certainly do! Struggling with the early starts again mind, but I'm sure I'll get used to them. I really want to start trying to get up super duper early in the morning - like 5:30am! I know that sounds crazy but I love mornings - Yes, I am 'that' person ha ha!
Anyhoo... been trying to eat a little better after the old Xmas hols and so Sunday night (which is usually naughty, takeaway/eating out/buger/pizza/lazy food night) I decided to do something I've not done in ages! - PIZZA NIGHT! I love this! Oh, I love it so so much, it's super fun to do, all you need to do is make a super easy pizza dough, roll it out, put on your toppings, put in the oven and then apply to face! YUM YUM YUM!! :)

So, here's what we managed to do (me and hubby that is) and here's the recipes...

Pizza Dough Base:

Ingredients:

300g Strong Bread Flour
1 x 7g sachet of fast action/easy bake yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil - or a flavoured oil if you prefer
175ml warm water

Method:
  • Preheat the oven to 220 degrees (fan 190 degrees)
  • Add all the dry ingredients to a large bowl and mix together
  • Then add the liquid ingredients
  • Now you can either get 'down and dirty' and get your hands in - if so knead the dough on a floured work surface for 8 mins or so until its nice and springy - or if you're like me (sticky finger phobe) then put it all in the kitchen aid and knead with a dough hook on slow for 4 minutes or until it all comes together
  • Take the ball of dough out and split it into 3 sections
  • Roll out each piece of dough into very thin rectangles/squares/circles - whatever you like
  • Place on the baking tray and then top with whatever you like!
  • Once topped, put in the oven for around 8-10 minutes or until crispy and your liking!
  • Eat straight away! But don't burn your mouth obviously - Duur! :p
My favourite base is sun-dried tomato paste as its nice and sweet and not too acidic - if that makes sense but you can use what you like

Enjoy everybody! Happy pizza making!

Lots of Love

This is a sundried tomato base, cooked in the oven and then once cooked, topped with rocket, buffalo mozzarella, baby tomatoes, fresh basil, fresh pesto and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil


This is a sundried tomato base with cured beef, grated mozzarella cheese, pimento peppers and fresh basil - Hubby's fav and was super tasty!


This is a sundried tomato base, with chilli roasted peppers (these can be cooking in the oven whilst you're making the pizza toppings), pimento peppers, fresh bail and then drizzled with balsamic glaze and extra virgin olive oil when its out of the oven


And finally, this is a sundried tomato base and grated mozzarella top with fresh basil leaves!



PIZZA CHEERS!!
