Belling Superheroes: Healthy Homemade Pizzas

Method

Homemade pizzas are so easy to make and much tastier (not to mention healthier!) than a takeaway. Just like the Flash, you can add whatever toppings you fancy, and even get creative with the kids to make pizza faces!

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.
  2. In a large bowl, add the flour, yeast, butter, warm water and salt. Mix well to form a dough.
  3. Knead the dough for 10 minutes (you can use a machine with a dough hook if you have one).
  4. Pop the dough back into an oiled bowl and cover with a tea towel. Leave for 30 minutes to rise.
  5. Once risen, place the dough on the worktop and knead a couple of times. Split into two even halves and shape into pizza bases.
  6. Place the pizza bases onto greased baking trays.
  7. Now the fun part! Spoon on the tomato passata or puree, sprinkle on the grated cheese and cover with your choice of toppings.
  8. Pop them into the oven and cook for 20-30 minutes. The dough should be fluffy and crisp and the toppings should be cooked through.
  9. Serve while hot or enjoy cold the next day!
