Very simple Margherita pizza
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 2
You can't beat piping hot cheese and tomato on a thin, crispy pizza base - this version is ready in just 35 minutes
- STEP 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.
- STEP 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.
MAKE IT DIFFERENT
Tikka pizza: Scatter some cooked chicken tikka over the passata and replace the basil with coriander. For extra heat, add some chopped chill to, or try - Chorizo & olive pizza: Layer thin slices of chorizo over the passata and scatter with sliced olives.
