What you need:
- 450g/1lb Odlums Strong White Flour
- 1 teaspoon Granulated Sugar
- Good pinch of Salt
- 1 x 7g sachet Fast Acting Yeast
- 300ml/½pt Warm Water (1 part boiling to 2 parts cold)
- 1 tablespoon Olive or Vegetable Oil
- Shamrock Semolina, for dusting if liked
- 2 tablespoons Oil
- 1 x 400g tin Roma Chopped Tomatoes
- 1 Onion, finely chopped (optional)
- 1 Garlic Clove, crushed
- 1 teaspoon Fresh Herbs (Basil, Thyme, Parsley etc.) or ½ teaspoon Dried Mixed Herbs
- Cheese (Mozzarella and/or Grated Cheddar)
- Slices of Pepperoni or Chorizo
- Shredded Cooked Chicken
- Sliced Ham
- Olives & Anchovies
- Make the dough by putting the flour, sugar, salt and yeast into a large bowl. Add the oil to the warm water and pour into the dry ingredients. Mix together to form a dough.
- Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead for about 7 to 10 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic. This can be done in half the time by using dough hooks in an electric mixer. Return to bowl and cover loosely with a tea towel. Leave in a warm enough place to prove until doubled in size. About 45 minutes to 1 hour.
- Meanwhile, make the sauce: heat the oil in a pan, add the onions (if used) and gently fry until soft. Add the tomatoes, garlic and herbs and bring to the boil. For a smooth sauce this may be blitzed in a food processor. Sauce should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. If it needs thickening, bring it to the boil and reduce to thicken, this may take a few minutes. Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6.
- When dough is ready, dust a board with semolina if used, or flour and roll out to a round, size depends on the thickness and the number of pizzas you wish to make.
- Place pizzas on baking trays or baking stone. Spread with a little of the tomato sauce, then the cheese and the toppings of your choice.
- Bake for about 10-15 minutes depending on the thickness of the pizza, until the pizza is golden underneath and the topping is bubbling on top.

Think you’re looking at an indulgent desert? Think again! We love Roz Purcell’s Simple Oat Pancake recipe. Try it out today! PS. That’s Greek Yougurt not whipped cream!
50g Flahavan’s Oats
1 1/2 tbsp Greek yoghurt, plus extra to serve
1 tsp honey or maple syrup
1/2 tsp gluten-free baking powder (regular will work also)
1 scoop (30g) protein powder (optional)
Coconut oil, for frying
1 tub Greek yogurt
1 To make the oat pancakes, blend all the ingredients except the oil in a food processor until smooth.
I use my NutriBullet for this.
2 Heat a little coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan, then wipe it out with kitchen paper.
3 Add spoonfuls of the batter to the pan – it’s a thick batter, so make small pancakes.
4 Cook for 2 minutes, until the bottom is golden brown and ready to be turned. Flip over and cook for 1–2 minutes more, until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining batter.
5 Serve warm with a dollop of Greek yoghurt and fresh berries.
