Made this last night. Came out really well. I am actually going to ask what I need to do to make a thinner crust? Perhaps halve the yeast?
Will def make again. Just had the last slice as lunch :)

Oooh my. This turned out awfully. I must be awful with dough. I doubled the quantities for this recipe and the crust turned out far too crumbly and dry. It didn't leaven one bit, and with all the ingedients on top the thin crust simply didn't hold. My kitchen was a disaster zone.

The topping was delicious though.

Excellent recipe, I tried it with olives, capers and anchovies as toppings. Really quick to make, easiest pizza base recipe I've found

I've made this several times and it's easy and really yummy, a big hit in our house!

Well, I made it!
It tasted really good and packed up with vegetables.
I changed the recipe. I went different way about the topping.
Gave up capers, cut down a little tiny bit on the courgettes. Instead I add a few finely sliced mushrooms, a few cherry tomatoes and 1 tablespoon of goat's cheese. My children loved that.

I posted the recipe on my blog
www.bayaderka.blogspot.com

So thanks for sharing the recipe with us!

Re the yeast needing sugar, the 'fast action' dried yeast may not need it, it'll say on the packet. To the person whose pizza didn't rise, the most likely reason is that the yeast was out of date. Stale yeast won't work.
I will use a higher proportion of white flour next time - this was a bit heavy even though I rolled it out really thinly. But the biggest thing is there's no cheese on the base! The mozzarella wasn't enough. Next time I'll use tomato puree (I found it hard to drain off the juice) and then a layer of cheese before the other ingredients. But this was a good, easy recipe.

This recipe is really nice and easy to be prepared. I have tried many recipes before, by far this one has the most straight forward instruction. In order to make the pizza dough more flavourful, I let it ferment in room temperature 5-6 hours. After long fermentation period, the dough will become more stretchy and easy to be shaped according to what you want.

Used this recipe for 2 pizza bases, then just added my own toppings. Had a tuna, onion and mushroom pizza and a ham and artichoke - delicious!
Great pizza recipe, will be doing it again this weekend, only with chorizo and whatever veg are left over in the fridge!

loved this recipe tasted like a juicy vegetable stuffed pita bread but the stuffing on top :) this was my method i would like to share:

1) 200g strong white bread flour, 50g wholemeal, mixed with 1tsp salt and 1.2 tsp dry active yeast. put into the bread machine and poured in about 130ml warm water mixed with 2 tbsp olive oil..set to dough cycle for about 10mins

2) Bring the dough together to a smooth flat ball and place on a large, lightly floured baking tray .Cover the pizza dough loosely with oiled cling-film, in a warm place till doubled or ready to use

3)Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7. Remove the clingfilm from the dough and roll into circle & prick holes all over the dough with a fork.

4) spread topping over leaving a 2.5cm/1in border. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bake in the oven for 15–20 minutes, or until the bread is crisp and golden-brown.

Wonderful pizza! I made this with a white crust as my husband is not a fan of wholemeal, and also left off the capers, but only because I didn't have any. It reheats really well so is a good option for bringing leftovers for lunch.

addalou's picture

i'm probably wrong but doesn't it need suger to get the yeast working and salt to stop it

that is how bread making works i think

but looks a really good recipe will try i miss pizza

The topping was really good and tasted fresh. Yet again, my dough didn't rise though. I took on richard's tip about the water not being too hot but it didn't seem to rise at all.

lucretiaboredyer's picture

Just wondered if the cooook who added the onion and garlic had fried them in some oil to soften first of all? Many thanks. I will definitely try this without the capers as I too am not keen.

Also did anyone else see that mad article about carrots making you more attractive? Wot a load of rubbish. I should therefore at 59 look like a glamour model. What on earth will they come up with next?!!! Do hope I didn't miss anything crucial like I should have been eating them raw all these years ...

Lovely fresh tasting pizza. I added peppers to mine just coz I had some in fridge. Really good and easy to make. Made it again the next day and put different cheese (Cheddar) topping on coz had run out of mozzarella, very good. I think it would be a good way of getting children to eat veggies. I made by hand coz not got food processor or bread maker and it still worked very well. Recipe not clear about proving of dough. Before rolling it I left it to double in size in the bowl in a warm place covered with a cloth for about half hour.

Make sure the water is warm not hot or you kill the yeast and the dough won't rise. Also roll out and leave to prove for 20mins before adding the topping if you prefer.

Made this on Friday night. Completely gorgeous and Dave loved it (he liked it better than the pizza restaurant, so I must have done something right!). Easier than the other pizza recipes I've made and quicker. I'll definately be adding this to my favorites.
