My Pizza dough recipe (perfect for kids school lunches)

Annabelle loves Pizza

Having pizza for lunch is her favourite thing at the moment.

To make my life easier I make a batch of pizza bases in one go so that I can take one out of the freezer at a time and in 10-15 minutes I have a fresh homemade pizza ready for Annabelle's lunch.

This is my recipe for the pizza bases:


600g strong white bread flour, plus plenty for rolling (I prefer an italian tipo 00 flour) 
500ml slightly warm water
½ tsp dried yeast
2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for drizzling


Put the flour, yeast and 1 tsp salt into a large bowl. 
Stir in the 500ml of slightly warm water and the oil. You should end up with a moist dough that is rough and lumpy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, cover with a tea towel. 
Leave the dough to rise until doubled in size.

When ready to cook. 

Dust your work surface with flour, then divide the dough into 4 or 6 pieces. 

Knead each piece on the floured surface, use enough flour to stop the dough being sticky.
Roll each piece into a small pizza shape 15-20 cm in diameter and  lift them to baking sheets. 
Leave to rise for 10 mins. 
Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt (optional) and bake for about 5-6 mins for an individual, take them out before it goes crispy or take any colour. 

Take them out and let them cool down and wrap them individual and freeze them.

I take one out in the morning and add toppings -normally bolognese sauce and different veg.

I cook them until nice and light brown.

I hope you will enjoy the recipe
