500g of plain flour.
1 sachet of dried yeast.
Tbsp of sugar
A glug of oil
- Mix dry ingredients together.
- make a well in the centre.
- 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.
- Knead together for a good 5 minutes really working into a smooth dough.
- Place in bowl and cover with a towel and pop in a warm place to rise.
- Leave at least 30 mins. The aim is for it to double in size and look like the picture above.
- Knead again on a floured surface and roll out to desired shape.
This 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.
- Finely chop the onion and garlic and fry til soft.
- Add the passata with the honey and basil and heat through.
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!
