Home made Pizza ~ Secret Recipe club 21st November

This is my 4th assignment with the Secret Recipe Club.The aim of the club is that you are allocated a blog from which you have to select  a recipe and try  it and blog about it.

My assigned blog was Jamies's, who blogs at our eating habits.I searched the blog for a veggie recipe, and came across this homemade pizza..The recipe was simple to follow  but as I don't own bread maker, I proved the dough in the old fashioned way of leaving it in a warm place.Only changes I made were that I added peppers, sweet corn and onion to the pizza for toppings .The Original recipe can be found here

Thin and crispy base with a rich tangy tomato sauce and topped with colourful crunchy vegetables and melting mozzarella cheese.


Pizza Dough;

1 cup water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons dry yeast

Pizza Sauce:

1 clove garlic finely minced
1 tablespoon oregano
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
200 ml sieved italian tomatoes(passata)


175 grams Mozzarella cheese grated
2 tablespoons mixed peppers finely diced
2 tablespoons precooked sweet corn
1 small red onion finely chopped


1. Mix all the ingredients in the bread list and make a dough.
2. Place the prepared dough in a large bowl , cover with a damp tea towel and leave to rise in a warm placefor 2-3 hours.
3. In a pan heat the olive oil and  saute the garlic, next add the sieved tomatoes, oregano, salt and pepper and sugar and simmer for 10 minutes until pizza sauce is thickened.
4. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
5.When dough has doubled in size, knock out the air and split  dough into 6 equal portions. Roll out a desired pizza shape on floured surface.
6. Use a little olive oil to grease a baking try and transfer the rolled out pizza dough onto them.
7. Bake for 10 minutes at 425 degrees.
8. Remove from oven and spead with prepared tomato sauce,  add toppings ; peppers, sweetcorn and onion and sprinkle with grated mozzarella cheese.
9. Return to oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes.Pizza is ready when cheese starts to bubble and brown slightly.
Serve hot.
