Man-sized pizza


The other day Hubby was home before me and he made pizza 🙂 Home-made pizza is the best, as you can put whatever toppings you like on it. If we have shop-bought pizza, Hubby always puts extra cheese on it as he complains they really don’t put enough on! My favourite home-made topping is ham and pineapple, but you can do whatever your heart desires. Sometimes we do half pepperoni and half ham and pineapple, that way we can have the best of both worlds! Here’s how he did it.

For the dough:

7 oz plain white flour

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 oz margarine

1 tbsp oil

1 egg

3 fl oz milk

In a bowl, stir together the flour, salt and baking powder. Rub in the butter. Make a well in the centre and add the oil, egg and milk. Stir until it forms a soft dough. Turn out the dough onto a well floured surface and knead for about 30 seconds. Roll out to fit your oiled baking tray, we use a regular rectangular one. Place the dough on the sheet and stretch out into the corners, turning up the edges slightly. Now top with tomato based sauce and your choice of topping. We used half a jar of pasta sauce, a few sliced tomatoes, then scattered half a packet of ham (sliced up) and half a fresh pineapple (cut into chunks, tinned works perfectly well too) on top. Over that we put sliced mozzarella and grated cheddar. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes at 220°C. If you are generous with the toppings this should serve 4, we usually eat half and have the rest the next day. What could be better than home-made pizza 2 days running??
