Quick & Easy Pizza


For the dough

  • 300g strong bread flour
  • 1 tsp instant yeast (from a sachet or a tub)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for drizzling

For the tomato sauce

  • 100ml Passata
  • 1 tsp Dried Basil
  • 1 tsp Dried Parsley

Toppings Ideas

  • 125g ball mozzarella, sliced or pearls
  • Grated Cheese
  • handful grated or shaved Parmesan
  • handful cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Olives
  • Pepperoni
  • Sundried Tomatoes
  • Pineapple
  • Pancetta
  • Pesto
  • Mushrooms
  • Salami
  • Proscitutto
  • Artichoke



  1. Make the base: Put the flour into a large bowl, then stir in the yeast and salt.
  2. Make a well, pour in 200ml warm water and the olive oil and bring together with a wooden spoon until you have a soft, fairly wet dough.
  3. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 4- 5 mins until smooth.
  4. Cover with a tea towel and set aside. **If you would like a thicker crust,  leave the dough to rise, this is not essential for a thin crust.
  5. Make the sauce: Mix the passata, and herbs, then season to taste.
  6. Roll out the dough: If you decided to let the dough rise, be sure to give it a quick knead, then split into two balls.
  7. On a well floured surface, roll out the dough into large rounds, using a rolling pin.
  8. The dough needs to be very thin as it will rise in the oven. Lift the rounds onto two floured baking trays.
  9. Top and bake: Pre-heat the oven to 240C/fan 220C /gas 8.
  10. Prick the rolled out bases, and cover with sauce, cheese, and chosen toppings.
  11. Drizzle with olive oil and season.
  12. Bake for 10-12 mins until crisp golden brown. Serve with a little more olive oil, cracked pepper and Parmesan.
