Pizza in a Flash!

Ingredients

  • Base...
  • 1 cup Wholemeal Flour,
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder,
  • 2 Tbsp Oil,
  • Approx ½ cup milk
  • Extra flour as required for rolling out
  • Sauce...
  • 1 large Onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, chopped or crushed
  • 1 can chopped peeled tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • Any desired toppings e.g. capsicum, pineapple, ham, mushrooms, olives, feta, spinach, blue cheese, nuts/seeds etc
  • Grated Edam or Parmesan Cheese

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 200 Celcius.

    Combine all the ingredients adding the milk slowly to form a just-sticky mixture that forms a ball.

     

  2. Drop the ball into the flour container, flour your rolling pin and roll the base out thinly onto an oiled baking tray.

     

  3. In a pan brown the onion with a little oil, add the tomatoes and any other ingredients and heat through - this is your instant pizza base sauce.

    I also love to add in grated carrot/zucchinni, and/or diced capsicum/chilli in as well. 

    Hint - this is also great as a pasta sauce, you can make double and set the other aside in the fridge or freezer!

  4. Spread the sauce evenly onto the base, add extra toppings, finish with a little cheese & bake at 200 degrees C for 10-15 mins till crispy.

    Serve hot with a fresh salad.

    Another variation is to use sliced eggplant as the pizza base. This is a great option if you need a gluten free version, or you just want something a bit fancier!

    Simply slice your eggplant into 1 to 1.5cm slices. (Circles work well for children, or you can cut lengthways.) Bake them at 180 degrees on trays with a little oil for 8 minutes, then add toppings and bake for a further 8 minutes.
