Treat yourself to a tasty homemade pizza this week by following this innovative take on the classic Margherita pizza.
¼ x 500g packet white bread mix
2 tablespoons fresh red pesto or pizza sauce
150g mozzarella cheese, sliced
2 fresh basil leaves, torn
Grated parmesan, optional (to serve)
Preheat the oven to 210°C / Fan 200°C / Gas Mark 6-7.
Warm the frying pan in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
Make up ¼ of the packet of bread dough as per the pack instructions.
Roll out the made dough into a 24cm circle and place inside the warmed frying pan.
Leave the dough to rise in a warm place for about 20-30 minutes until it has risen and is like a soft pillow.
Spread the pesto or pizza sauce base over the pizza base leaving a 1cm crust around the edge.
Arrange the mozzarella slices on the top.
Place in the oven and bake until golden brown, approximately 20-25 minutes.
Scatter with fresh basil and grated Parmesan, if you like.
