Pizza (and an easy dough recipe)

I love a homemade pizza, especially with homemade pizza dough. Recently, one of the mums from school told me she makes her pizza dough from flour and Greek yoghurt. What? I couldn’t believe it but this lovely lady swears by it and so I tried it out. Yep – lovely, light dough so easy to make you could get your kids to do it.

Here’s the recipe:

For every medium-sized pizza knead together 1 cup of self-raising flour and 1 cup of Greek yoghurt.

Knead and knead till the dough is well mixed and stretchy, then flatten to make a pizza base.

Pop all your toppings on and bake until golden on the top.

My favourite pizza toppings:

I always drizzle olive oil on the base before I top it. I’m not a huge fan of a tomato base. I also love chilli-infused oil.

Prosciutto, goat’s cheese, Kalamata olives, tomatoes and rocket (pop the rocket on the top after you’ve cooked the base and toppings). I remember having this pizza in the south of Italy, in Santa Maria Castellebata, when I was pregnant with Lucie. I was ravenous for it!

Fetta, fresh rosemary and pumpkin (cook the small pieces of pumpkin beforehand so they are nice and soft).

Bocconcini, lemon and broccoli. Love this combo. Add whole slices of lemon or small slices of preserved lemon. Make sure you squeeze a bit of lemon juice over the top before serving. Yum.

And lastly, Goat’s chess, salmon and capers. So delicious.

Hope you can create some of your own amazing toppings with your friends and family.
