Odlums bake at home pizza.

Odlums pizza

What you need:

Pizza Dough

  • 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


Tomato Sauce

  • 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


Suggested Toppings

  • Cheese (Mozzarella and/or Grated Cheddar)
  • Slices of Pepperoni or Chorizo
  • Shredded Cooked Chicken
  • Sliced Ham
  • Peppers
  • Mushrooms
  • Olives & Anchovies

 

How to:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

Chilli and Garlic Flavoured Mussels with Pasta

 Chilli and Garlic Flavoured Mussels with Pasta

 The chilli flakes give a little kick without overpowering the other flavours.

Serves 4

Cooking time: 30 minutes 

Ingredients

  • 1 kg mussels
  • 1 tablesp olive oil
  • 2 shallots, peeled and finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 1 x 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • Pinch of chilli flakes
  • 300g linguine
  • 2 tablesp. chopped flat leaf parsley
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

To serve

:

  • Lightly dressed green salad

To Cook

Place the mussels in a large bowl of cold water.  Use a small knife to remove any barnacles and pull away the beard. Discard any mussels that are damaged or won’t close when tapped.

Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan on a medium heat.  Add the shallots, garlic, chilli flakes and cook for 2-3 minutes. They should soften but not brown. Then add the tomatoes and simmer for ten minutes. Taste and season with black pepper and a little salt.

Cook the linguine in a large pot of salted boiling water according to the packet instructions.

While the pasta is cooking add the prepared mussels to the tomato sauce. Allow the mussels to cook for 3-4 minutes, shaking the pan from time to time to ensure they cook evenly. Discard any that have not opened.

When the pasta is cooked, drain, saving a couple of tablespoons of the cooking liquid.  Return the pasta to the saucepan it was cooked in along with the reserved cooking liquid.  Pour the mussels and tomato sauce on top of the pasta and mix well. Return the saucepan to a low heat for a couple of minutes to heat through.

Drizzle over some olive oil and sprinkle with the chopped parsley. Serve with a green salad.
