Followed the recipe, baking the bases briefly before adding topping, and was pleasantly surprised. Quick, easy and tasty. The kids loved it.

Fantastic recipe, perfectly crisp pizzas- I reduced flour to 250g for 2 thin crust pizzas. Pre-heat your oven to max and they only take 10minutes to cook!

Cooked this during the COVID 19 Lock Down for my wife as she loves a Domino however the don’t deliver as far out as we live from town. Anyway all went good pre cook the base for up to 5 minutes then cook with toppings of your choice for a further 10. Better and obviously cheaper than Dominos and so quick!

Really easy pizza dough recipe. We cooked this on a proper pizza tray, on its own for 5 min and then added the toppings and did for a another 15min. Turned out great.

The dough was vile to be honest. Wife and 4 year old kid couldn't stomach it. Used plain flour. Like many on here I had to scrape the toppings off to try and eat something. Had to add more watter as flour was not absorbing. Dough Tastes like a weird sour cake or scone or something. Tried to Google why this is but can't find any info apart from ones that involve yeast. Don't waste your time.

Won't be making that again. Tasted like a mouthful of flour. Definitely got to get some yeast when I can.

Overall the flavour is bland. Not bad bland though—this is a great recipe for a lazy pizza base using ingredients you already have at home. I used my own amounts of the ingredients (see below) and it worked perfectly for me. But I think there's a few easy ways to jazz this up and make it just that little bit more special. So here's my notes: I used: 300g of self-raising flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 tbsp vegetable oil, 170ml warm water. I didn't use baking powder because that's already in self-raising flour. Probably shouldn't have used as much salt since that's also in self-raising flour I think. I split the mixture in half and rolled out my 2 pizza bases. The bases were about a regular thickness (half an inch) when rolled out to roughly 11 inches in diameter. I put the toppings straight on and baked them for 15 mins at 180 fan forced which wasn't quite enough to get it to the crispy level I like. So what I'd do differently: - Replace the vegetable oil with olive oil for more flavour, and use 2 tablespoons instead of 1. - Reduce the water to compensate for the extra oil. - Reduce the flour down to 250g because the 2 bases ended up being kinda thick and I'd prefer a thinner and crispier pizza. Bonus cos this will help reduce calories! - Reduce the salt to 1/2 teaspoon if necessary (based on the flour you use). Hope this helps :)

Excellent pizza! It's not like frozen or delivery pizza, it's more like proper Italian pizza. I recommend cooking the base on it's own for a bit and then adding the toppings so you get a nice crispy base instead of a doughy one.
