and HIS :
This is the one time I don't feel guilty about feeding my family pizza-when its organic home-made pizza! My son insists on always adding his own toppings and my daughter is following suite. I found a great base recipe on the web by Anthony Worrel Thompson called perfect pizza dough, link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/database/perfectpizzadough_72456.shtml
This was voted the best dough recipe so far by my family.
I have a foolproof tasty tomato sauce recipe for my pizzas and the left overs can be used as a tomato relish to go with burgers or salmon fishcakes.
In hot olive oil add- *1 diced onion and oregano
cook for 3-4 min then add *1-2 clove crushed garlic
then add (to up the veg count) *1 grated carrot and or courgette
next add *a tin of plum chopped tomatoes
and cook down while prepping toppings. Season with salt and pepper. I keep the lid off and keep cooking until all the liquid has evaporated off and you have a thick sauce.
TOPPINGS we used were
- Steamed asparagus
- Black Spanish olives from deli counter
- Frozen sweetcorn
- Fresh tomatoes marinated in Olive oil with
- Spring onions
- Onion slices
- Sliced courgettes
- Leeks and baby sweetcorn are also a favourite, overlooked on this occasion
- Cheddar cheese
