Homemade Pizza

Homemade pizza is the best I reckon especially as you can put on it whatever your hearts desire.  My husband and I like a thin base too so when making your own you make your base as thick or thin as you want too.

A very good friend of mine shared here pizza base with all her friends on Facebooks so after giving it a try, this is the only way we make our pizza bases now.

And here is the recipe:

Tracey's Pizza Base

2 Cups Plain Flour (or pizza/bread flour)
8g Satchel Dry Yeast
1 Tsp Caster Sugar
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/2 Tbsp Olive Oil
3/4 Cup Warm Water

  1. Mix all dry ingredients then add oil and water.  Mix to a soft dough.
  2. Knead on floured surface till soft and pliable
  3. Put back in bowl and cover with cling wrap.  Put in a warm place for 30 mins or till it double's in size.
  4. When doubled, punch once to get air out.
  5. Remove from bowl and knead gently for 1 minute
  6. Roll to desired thickness and size and add sauce and your choice of toppings.
  7. Place in oven for 20-30 mins at 200c
I find that as I like a thin base there is enough dough for my two little girl's to make their own pizza.

MMMM guess what we are having for dinner!!!
