Pizza Base


The weather of late has been really lovely, a little chilly in the morning but it soon fines up enough with all the tell tale signs spring is just around the corner. In the kitchen we have been enjoying home made pizza using fresh herbs from the garden. I first learnt this recipe at the Simple Living workshops when they were doing cooking lessons. It is still my favorite recipe from those lessons, along with the curried sausage recipe.


PIZZA BASE



1 1/3 cup Plain Flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 dessertspoon sugar
1 teaspoon yeast
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ cup warm water
Cooking spray

METHOD

PREHEAT OVEN TO 180 degrees.

Combine, flour, salt, sugar & yeast into a large bowl, mix well.
Pour oil & warm water into dry ingredients.
Use a flat blade knife to mix into a ball and kneed into dough while still in the bowl.
Lightly flour bench, turn out dough using a rolling pin roll out to desired size or flatten with hand.
Don’t overwork the dough, roll lightly. The less handling the better the results.
Lightly spray tray and place dough into tray and add toppings. Lay pizza flat.
Cook for approximately 10-15 mins.

TOPPINGS:

PIZZA
Spread base with pizza sauce or BBQ sauce or tomato paste with mixed herbs. Top with meat, pineapple, ham, bacon, chicken, salami, onions, cheese sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, or create your favorite pizza

SWEET PIZZA

Tin apples, stewed fruits, brown sugar, cinnamon, jam coconut, muesli, nutella, sultanas or design your own combinations.

I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.
