#NicaBakeOff: Italian Style Pizza

For this week’s #NicaBakeOff, one of the team is sharing a family recipe with you, as she dons the oven mitts and creates some delicious Italian pizza! Why not try out her recipe for yourself and let us know how it goes by dropping us a comment below?

Ingredients: Pizza Base
500g white flour
1 regular sachet of yeast 
2 tsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
Add as much warm water as needed

Ingredients: Toppings (Quantities as desired)

Chopped tomatoes

Step by Step

1) Vigorously mix together all of the required ingredients for the base until it forms a soft springy dough.

2) Place the pizza dough into a large bowl and cover with a wet cloth.

3) Allow the dough to rise by leaving in a warm place for anything from 30 mins to 2 hours. The longer it’s left, the better the flavour will be. Or, if you don't have a warm spot in your house, you could heat the oven to 150 degrees instead, then, turn off allowing to cool a little and place the bowl of dough inside the oven to rise.

4) Remove the raised dough from the oven and bowl.

5) Brush some olive oil onto a baking tray, and flatten the dough on top of it.

6) Add chosen toppings ( Mozzarella and chopped tomatoes) and bake at around 150 degrees 15-20 minutes.

7) Cut into slices and enjoy! 

It’s a simple recipe that doesn’t take very long to make either, and of course, it also tastes much better than any shop bought frozen versions too!
