September 4, 2019 by

Thursday 5th September is National Cheese Pizza Day!


- Olive oil for the tray
- 200g plain flour
- 7g packet easy-blend dried yeast
 1tsp sugar
- 125ml warm water
- 85ml paasata 
- 100g mozzarella, half grated, half chopped
- 2 tbsp grated parmesan or veggie alternative 
- Small bunch of basil - half chopped half left whole
- Side salad to serve 

The method in the madness:

1. Heat oven to 240C/220C fan/gas 9. Oil a 20 x 24cm baking tray. Mix the flour, yeast, ¼ tsp salt and the sugar in a bowl, then stir in the water. Bring the mixture together, knead until smooth, then press into the oiled tray.
2. Spread passata over the dough, leaving a thin border round the edge. Season the passata, then sprinkle with the chopped basil, the mozzarella and the Parmesan, and bake for 15-20 mins or until cooked through. Scatter with the remaining basil and serve with a side salad.
