The Best Pizza Recipe Ever!!!!

This is most definitely the best pizza recipe ever (it does exactly what it says on the tin!)! In our house Saturday night is pizza night and even our two boys join in with the making as well as the eating!

Here's the recipe and instructions. Obviously you can vary the toppings to suit yourself!

This is what you'll need:  1 sachet dry yeast (10g) ; ¾ cups lukewarm water ; ¼ teaspoon sugar ;  cups of flour ; pinch of salt ; tomato paste or tomato concentrate ; grated cheese ; sliced onions ; chopped peppers ; diced bacon (cooked) ; herbs

Step 1
Preheat oven to about 200C. In a small bowl, combine the yeast, sugar and lukewarm water together. Leave for 5-10 minutes until froth forms on the top.

Step 2
In a larger bowl, combine the flour and salt together. When the yeast is ready, combine this with the flour. Work together with a spoon and then your fingers until a soft dough forms.

If you like a thick pizza base then make 1 pizza out of this dough but if you like thin and crispy, divide it in half to make 2 pizzas!

Step 3
Roll out onto a floured surface until it's the size and shape you want. As you can see, mine isn't really any shape.....

Step 4
Place the dough onto a lightly oiled pizza tray (we use oven chip cooking trays). They have the holes in the bottom so the pizza base gets nice and crispy!! Then spread the tomato paste or concentrate all over the dough (including the sides).

Step 5
Add your cheese (we use normal strong cheddar), onions and other toppings. Don't forget a good sprinkling of herbs!

Step 6
Cook your pizza in the oven for about 15-20 mins. Check it regularly depending on your oven!
Once ready, open a bottle of wine and ENJOY!!!

Hope you like it!

  1. Have you got a wood-fired oven for cooking your pizzas in? Somehow the smoky taste of a wood fire adds the final touch.
    I once had a Brussels Sprout pizza - it was surprisingly good.
