Pizza the Mummy Mishaps way

When I heard Jenny from Mummy Mishaps talk about her fish finger pizza I was a bit unsure whether it would be something I would be making...

Then I saw the photos and it did look good so I decided to give it a go. I was going to make a pizza base that I've used before, using yeast, but I didn't have enough time as the dough takes 1.5 hours in the breadmaker so I went with the quick pizza base recipe that Jenny used, and doubled it as I knew it wouldn't be enough to go around this hungry family.

I did put my own little spin on Jenny's pizza and instead of using tomato ketchup on the base I used baked beans. I also made an additional pizza with peppers, onion and hot chillies on, and served with homemade chunky coleslaw and healthy oven baked chips.

For the base you will need :
1 cup of self raising flour
1/2 cup of milk
1 tbsp oil

For the topping you will need :

Can of baked beans
Cooked fish fingers
Grated Cheese

Spicy Pizza topping
Tomato ketchup
grated cheese
sliced red onion
sliced chillies (I used pickled red chillies)
Sliced Roasted Red peppers
dried mixed herbs

  • Mix the flour, milk & oil in a bowl until it comes together to form a dough - I added more flour as I suspect I was a bit heavy handed with the milk.
  • Roll out on a floured surface until the size of your baking sheet/pizza stone
  • Spread the beans over the base, add the cut up fish fingers and cover with grated cheese
  • Bake in a 180 degree (C) oven for 10-15 minutes

For the spicy pizza

  • Spread the tomato ketchup over the base, cover with grated cheese, chillies, onion & peppers
  • Sprinkle with mixed herbs & bake in a 180 degree (C) oven for 10-15 minutes

To make the chips I sliced the potatoes (skins on), rinsed them in cold water & spread them out in a large roasting pan pre-heated with 2 tbsp of oil - I usually use olive oil but this time I used Flora Cuisine. Toss them in the oil and shake some malt vinegar over the top. Roast them in a hot oven for around 35-45 minutes, turning occasionally and giving them an extra sprinkle of vinegar - this gives them a real 'chip shop' like taste.

I baked the pizzas in my Mermaid Companion Trio pans - perfect when you want to make small pizzas with different toppings as all 3 trays are designed to fit on a standard oven shelf - you can WIN a set of these next week in one of my Blogaversary competitions.
