Cooking With Your Toddler - Homemade Pizza

There are a few pizza recipes in the Linky and I've been meaning to make it for a while now but just never got round to it. As I've dragged the breadmaker out of the garage I decided to use it to make some pizza dough ready for pizza making once Jack was home from pre-school. I used to use this recipe a lot, every week in fact...until I got lazy!



You will need (makes 2 large pizzas)
1 1/4 cups water
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 cups strong white bread flour
 1.5 tsp salt
1/2 tsp granulated sugar
1 tsp dried yeast



  • Pour the water & olive oil into the bradmaker pan
  • sprinkle over the flour, covering all the liquid
  • add the salt to one corner and the sugar to the other
  • make a well in the centre and add the yeast
  • turn the breadmaker to the 'dough' setting and turn on



Toppings - we used :
1 pot Tideford Organics Ragu a la Bolgnese (you can use tomato puree, a ready made pasta sauce or make your own)
Grated cheese (we used mature cheddar,you can use a mix of cheddar & mozzarella if you like)
sliced pepper
sliced onion
sliced mushrooms
sweetcorn
olives
sliced mini sausages
cooked chicken
ham
mixed herbs

or anything else you fancy



  • Roll the base out either using a rolling pin or your hand on a very well floured surface - I have somewhere a nifty little pizza dough roller but it seems to have disappeared from my ridiculously full utensil drawer.

  • Flour a baking sheet or pizza stone and lay the base on it.
  • Spread the ragu over the base

  • Cover evenly with cheese

  • Add your toppings

  • Sprinkle on some mixed herbs or Oregano
