Really delicious. I've had similar before but the addition of the cheese in the base was a really good idea. The kids loved it too!

About to make this for the second time tonight - made it first time using gluten-free flour and my hubbie said it was the nicest pizza he's had since become gluten-free about 5 years ago! Used ready made tomato pizza sauce so can't comment on the tomato sauce suggested here.

This is amazing! Just come across this beaut! I'm allergic to yeast and so haven't had pizza in years, going to try it sometime next week :) cant believe i haven't thought of this before

My two year old really enjoyed this, wolfed it down. I halved the recipe but there was still loads of slices, I grated a bit of cheddar into the base mix, gave it a lovely flavour, also for the tomato base, reduced some plum tomatoes in a saucepan with a squirt of ketchup and it all worked out great!

Really nice and quick. The tomato sauce and purée mix was a fab quick idea. A proper sauce would be better but it's a great quick replacement.

Will be a new fixture to our dinner menus. :-)

I have made this for my kids a couple of times, I use wholemeal flour instead, they love it.

5 stars for the base.

Prepared the base as stated and rolled out thinly. Used a large sheet pan. The base was thin, had a crispy exterior and a slightly soft, crumbly interior (similar to a scone). Topped with caramelized onions, balsamic vinegar glaze, olives, cherry tomatoes, portobello mushroom and mozzarella. Delicious and I will be making again.

We loved this. I will be making it again! I added herbs! Also added chilli flakes to the topping to give it a kick. Next time I will make the base thinner though. It was a bit thick. But an overall success! I do recommend this!

Nope! Green pepper is wrong (it's just unripe red pepper, you wouldn't eat green tomatoes would you?) Sweetcorn is just wrong, not at all Italian. Use whatever you like I guess but don't recommend wierd stuff, look to the Italian larder first! Mozerella is better than cheddar if you've got it in stock. The base recommended by Craig on this site is FAR crisper. Go there now, ditch all the weird egg stuff in this recipe!!! All in all a really duff recipe!!! Also the ketchup, PLEASE !!! YUK!

This is such an easy recipe and really tasty!
I did add some cheese and herbs to the scone mixture and only a pinch of salt, a teaspoon is too much!!
I also put some pepperoni and chilli flakes which was really tasty too! We love the scone base in our house, it makes a nice change. :-)

Made this well two at the same time added chorizo and spicy sausage the scone base works surprising well. Thank goodness I made two....

This is just wrong on so many levels. But maybe its just me. Hopefully my 3 year old son will like it when comes home from school.
Wish me luck!

I just made this with Cheese, Bacon, Onion and Green Peppers, and it was lovely! I used a Spicy Nandos sauce for a kick.

I spread the sauce evenly over the dough base and then spread cheese around the sides, and rolled the dough over to create a cheesy filled crust!

The only thing I did encounter was when the pizza was cooked, it tasted lovely but the dough was too thick, and tasted bland.

Next time I'd spread the dough out thinner, and add about half a tsp of baking powder, instead of one whole tsp. (I used self raising flour, If you're using plain flour, I'd say 1-1/2 tsp.)

Nevertheless, next time it shall taste even better!

This made a nice quick dinner for my children and was tasty. We just used tomato paste rather than mixing with tomato ketchup. Great quick dinner. Would make again

This was a very nice pizza. I made it with no tomatoes because my sister don't like em. But i would definitely make it again for a special accession.

This is ideal for my daughter as she has a wheat intolerance. Made it vegetarian with loads of different vegs. Very tasty and we could all enjoy it. Will definitely make it again.

Really great, quick and easy recipe. I made this when I had absolutely nothing to make in the house. All I had was some sliced chicken breast! I spied this and thought Id give it a go. I thought the scone base would not have been pizza-like but it was like a deep pan style pizza. The only ammendment I would make would be to add dried herbs or oregano to the scone mix the next time as I felt it would need a hint of flavour
