Mama’s Perfect Pizza

The dough



500g of plain flour.

1 sachet of dried yeast.

Tbsp of sugar

A glug of oil

Warm water


  1. Mix dry ingredients together.
  2. make a well in the centre.
  3. Pour in the oil and add warm water. Start with around 200ml. If you need more, add more. If it’s too much add more flour.
  4. Knead together for a good 5 minutes really working into a smooth dough.
  5. Place in bowl and cover with a towel and pop in a warm place to rise.
  6. Leave at least 30 mins. The aim is for it to double in size and look like the picture above.
  7. Knead again on a floured surface and roll out to desired shape.

The sauce

IMG_3487This sauce is actually quite versatile and I use it as a basic pasta sauce also.


Half an onion

2 garlic cloves

A sprinkle of dried basil.

Half a carton of passata

A tsp of honey to take the bitterness away from passata. You can use sugar instead.


  1. Finely chop the onion and garlic and fry til soft.
  2. Add the passata with the honey and basil and heat through.

That simple!!

Heres a couple that the kids put together. You can top with anything you like really. We pop it in a pre-heated oven of 200 degrees and bake for 15-20 mins. It’s so easy and much better for you than the shop bought. Again, I haven’t used salt but you can add what you like…..Enjoy!
