Makes 2 pizzas
300g strong bread flour
1 tsp instant yeast
1 tbsp olive oil
200 ml warm water
Making pizza dough is very simple. In a bowl, stir all of the dry ingredients together, make a well and pour in the warm water and olive oil. Combine everything with a fork. Once you have a dough you need to knead it for approximately 10 minutes. This is when the kids can get really involved, we took it in turns to knead for 2 minutes each. I have to say, I was impressed with their skills! The kids loved it and soon decided they were going to open a pizza shop when they are older.
It is best to transfer the dough to your baking sheet or tray at this stage, as it is very hard to handle once you have added toppings.
Our children like using tomato ketchup on their pizza's and have lots if fun squirting and spreading! The grown ups used tomato purée.
Next we added grated cheese and various toppings (ham, pepperoni, sweetcorn, peppers and herbs). Then you just need to pop in the oven at about 200 C for 18-20 minutes.
The final result is delicious and much nicer than anything you could buy at the shop plus lots more fun than a takeaway!
