Easy Pizza Base

This is the easiest pizza base recipe ever! You'll never need to buy shop bought pizza bases or frozen pizzas again! Give it a go, my 3 daughters can make their own pizzas - although my 4yo does need a little help. 

Use whatever toppings you have in your store cupboard and fridge.  Tomato puree as a base (I water this down a little as it can be rather strong, makes it go further too), ham, cheese, diced onion, olives, mushrooms, courgette slices, fresh or dried herbs, etc.  Great for kids to learn to cook lunch themselves, especially when they have friends over for a meal. 

1 cup plain flour (You can use self-raising flour just leave out the baking powder)

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 Tbsp oil

½ cup (250ml) milk

Sift the flour and baking powder (if using) and add the oil and milk.   Mix together to form a stiff dough.  Add your toppings, take care not to overload the pizza otherwise the base will be soggy, and bake at 220C for approximately 10 minutes until base browns and the toppings are cooked through.
