Easy Peasy Home Made Pizza




Yield 2

An easy pizza dough recipe to make with your kids. Makes two pizzas.



  1. Preheat your oven to 220C/425F/Gas Mark 7
  2. Sift the flour, salt and sugar into a bowl and then stir in the fast-action yeast.
  3. Add the oil to the warm water. Make a well in the middle and gradually add the warm water and oil, mixing with your hands as you go along. The mixture will feel quite lumpy, so keep bringing it together with your hands. Eventually, you should have a ball of soft dough, add a little extra sprinkle of flour if it is too sticky.
  4. Knead the dough on a lightly floured board or wooden table for around ten minutes.
  5. After around ten minutes, place your ball of dough into a lightly oiled bowl and cover with cling film. Place it somewhere warm for an hour. This is a good time to prepare your toppings.
  6. After an hour, take it out of the bowl and again, on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough again for a further few minutes to deflate it/knock it back.
  7. Roll out, spread with tomato sauce and your favourite toppings.
  8. Place your pizza in the centre of a hot oven (on a pizza stone or a baking tray) for around fifteen minutes, or until the base is crispy and your cheese has melted.
