This is a super easy dough recipe, without the need for yeast or any other fancy ingredients and you can top it with anything you've got on the fridge!
Quick and Easy Pizza Dough
100g Self-raising Flour
Splash Olive Oil
Teaspoon mixed herbs
Water to bind
Sift 100g of flour and add the olive oil and initially 100ml of water. Stir until it forms a dough.
Do not make the dough too wet or it will be sticky and uneasy to handle!
Once it has bound together into a ball you will need to knead it. (This is the best time to add any mixed herbs.) Do this by flouring a surface and pushing the dough away from you with your knuckles and base of your palm. Keep doing this until it gets more elastic.
It is then ready to roll out. (Don't forget to flour your rolling pin!)
As you roll, keep the dough moving so it doesn't stick to the surface. This dough is best when you have got it as thin as possible!
Before you put the toppings on, to make sure the dough cooks and gets nice and cripsy you need to seal it first!
(I stole this cheat off of Jamie Oliver and his 30 Minute Meals!)
Put some olive oil in a frying pan and heat until its nice and hot. Place the dough in the pan and warm through until it has a nice and crispy underside! I like to do this for the top as well (especially if you use a passata tomato sauce as the wetness can cause the dough to remain gooey!)
It is then ready to top! And will only need to warm the toppings through in the oven!

On my pizza I used tomato puree for the sauce with a few blobs of anchovie paste for an extra hit of flavour. I then added fresh basil leaves, blobs of mozarella, thinly sliced onion, sliced cherry tomatoes, and thin slices of Chorizo.
My boyfriend's veggie alternative was topped with, tomato puree, fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced onions, mushrooms, and Quorn 'poppin chicken bites'.
They were delicious! Certianly helped the wine go down!
Have a lovely weekend!
