Easy Homemade Pizza

I don’t have any bread in the house today for lunch. I know, I know. Bad planning and a sign of how close to complete domestic chaos I probably am. But I had a plan. I made pizza.

Genius. I got the kids involved and they were too busy grating cheese and spreading tomato mix that they didn’t notice their tummies grumbling until they could smell the cheese bubbling and it was time to sink their teeth into the deliciousness that is homemade pizza. Disaster averted and hero status claimed!

From making the dough and eating the pizza, it’s about 30 minutes. Seems unbelievable, but it’s true. I don’t let my dough prove at all, just make it and roll it out and bake it after I’ve topped it with whatever toppings I have in the fridge. I crank up my oven to the highest it can go and while it’s coming up to temperature I make the dough and get the kids to get the toppings ready.

Family fun at it’s best.

Dough:

750ml flour

300ml water

15g fresh yeast (10 ml instant yeast)

5ml salt

30ml oil (olive if you have)

Toppings:

Tin of tomato and onion mix

mozzarella cheese or cheese of your choice, grated

favourite toppings

 

Preheat oven to 260ºC

Combine the yeast, oil and water and mix well.

In a large bowl, combine flour and salt.

Pour in the yeast mixture and mix well.

Divide dough into six balls.

Roll each ball out with a rolling pin as thin as you like your crust.

    Thanks so much for this post, I actually bought yeast today for the 2 yr olds to make pizza and was going to search for a recipe (recipe for disaster, I know, but it will keep them busy)
