Let's try baking pizza's

I've never baked or cooked with Kiki, but it seemed like a good idea to try.
Again, my OCD was making me grimace at the thought of the mess, but I did the black bags taped to the table thing, works so well. 

I decided to make pizza's for our lunch, but didn't have any yeast, so looked online for a yeast free recipe and found one at allrecipes.co.uk.


Serves: 4 

  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 60g butter
  • 150ml milk
  • pizza toppings of your choice 


Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
  2. Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Pour the milk into the bowl and mix to a soft dough.
  3. Knead the dough and roll out into a large circle about 1cm thick. Place on oiled/buttered baking tray.
  4. Add whatever toppings you like.
  5. Bake the pizza in the preheated oven until the crust is golden, about 20 minutes.


    You can bake the dough in the oven for 2 minutes before adding the toppings and cooking it. This results in a softer more 'pan' type dough compared to thin and crispy.


  • Cheese - As Kiki is a bit picky about cheese, I pulled some cheese strings apart, that's a tedious job, in future I'd grate some mild cheddar or buy spaghetti cheese strings.
  • Sliced hot dogs
  • Sliced ham
  • Sliced cherry tomatoes
  • Red onions
  • Tomato Puree
Kiki didn't quite understand the concept of tomato puree, much more fun to squeeze and eat, so I spread a thin layer on the dough, but she enjoyed scraping it off, so gave up!

I put the toppings in separate tubs and we got to work.

 The end result
