For the base

  • 350g strong white flour
  • 7g sachet fast-action dried yeast
  • 1 tbsp coarse or fine semolina



    Semolina flour is pale-yellow in colour, high in gluten and used for traditionally made pasta,…


  1. To make the base, tip the flour into the bowl of a table-top mixer (or food processor with a dough attachment). Add 1 tsp salt to one side of the bowl and the yeast to the other. Add 275ml lukewarm water and mix on slow until a sticky dough forms. Turn up the mixer for 5-6 mins until an indent pushed into the dough pops out quickly. Put the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, then cover and leave in a warm place to prove until doubled in size.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan and sizzle the garlic for a few secs, then tip in the tomatoes, season and simmer for 5 mins until the sauce has thickened.

  3. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Knead the dough for a few mins, then halve and roll each half as thinly as possible. Lay each base on a baking sheet dusted with the semolina. Divide the tomato sauce between the pizzas, spreading almost to the edge. Dot over the spinach, add your toppings and drizzle with a little oil. Cook for 5 mins, then crack an egg onto each pizza. Swap the baking sheets, then cook for 10 mins more or until bases are cooked through. Drizzle the basil and rocket with a drop of oil and the lemon juice. Scatter over the pizza before eating.

I make pizza every week and I think that this recipie uses too much water. For 350g of flour I would only use about 210ml of water and a splash of olive oil.

When it is mixed (I don't think it usually takes as long as 5-6 minutes), coat the ball in olive oil and leave it to prove.

Hi Jodie

Olive oil is the answer! I add about 3 dessertspoons of olive oil to 500g flour when making my dough, so for 350 g 2 dessertspoons of oil would probably suffice.

I replaced the semolina with breadcrumbs - very easy to make and very good !

My 2nd attempt at making a pizza base and again the same problem. Can someone please tell me where I am going wrong? I always end up with a REALLY sticky dough that is impossible to get off my hands, never mind roll out. I have to smear it round a tray. Despite this, it does taste really good but I would like it to actually look like a pizza! Help!

Eggs are not dairy they are an animal byproduct.
