With households across the UK searching for activities to keep little (and big) ones entertained, we thought now might be a good time to share one of our simple, but delicious recipes, suitable for the whole family – pizza!

Makes two large pizzas


250g strong white bread flour
1 sachet of fast action yeast
A pinch of salt
1 tsp sugar
5 tbsp olive oil
100ml passata
1 garlic clove
1 large mozzarella ball
Your choice of toppings, such as cherry tomatoes, pepperoni and olives


  1. Combine the flour, yeast and salt in a large mixing bowl
  2. In a jug, combine the sugar and olive oil then add 125ml of warm water
  3. Make a well in the dry mixture then add the wet mixture and mix until it forms a dough
  4. Tip the dough onto a floured surface and knead for 5 – 10 minutes
  5. Put the dough ball into a clean, lightly oiled bowl, then cover with a tea towel and leave to prove somewhere warm for an hour or so
  6. Whilst the dough is proving, combine the passata, crushed garlic clove and a pinch of salt and pepper in a bowl
  7. Once proved, knock the dough back and split into two balls
  8. On a floured surface, roll out each ball to a 25cm diameter, then place the bases onto a sheet of baking paper
  9. Place an upturned baking tray at the top of a 220°C oven to warm
  10. In the meantime, spread a couple of dollops of the pizza sauce on the bases using the back of a spoon then add your toppings, cheese last (just don’t over-do the toppings, otherwise you’ll end up with a soggy bottom)
  11. Once the baking tray is hot, lift the baking paper with the pizzas onto the tray and cook at 220°C for 8 – 10 minutes
