Pizza Pie

Sometimes, when I dry my hair I start with good intentions. Section off. Dryer in one hand. Brush in the other. Then about four minutes in I discard the brush, tip my head upside down and blast. Job done. I’m like this with anything that requires a bit of patience and creativity. That’s why this pizza is square.

I was determined it would be round, 4 minutes in, I succumbed to it’s squareness.

This has been on my food list for a couple of weeks, due to it’s “anything can go on it” nature, there was no waste buying the ingredients 2 weeks ago. Once again it’s a BBC Good Food job. Here’s mine with slight changes.

I bought a cheap bread mix from Morrisons and used that for my base.

Make the bread mix, I did mine in the Magimix for ease and left to rise for 40 minutes.

Heat the oven to 200ºc (Fan), pop a baking tray in the oven as well.

Roll out 2 balls of dough, one a little smaller than the other.

You could buy a pasta sauce but I made mine using passata seasoned with flaked chilli, garlic salt & salt & pepper.

Get your heated tray out of the oven and pop the larger of your rolled out doughs onto the tray. Ladle on the sauce leaving the edges sauce-free.

Now cover it with what you fancy (or have in the fridge/larder) I used thinly sliced white onion and green pepper, a selection of salami & a couple of slices of pancetta.

Then top with torn mozzarella, dried oregano, finely grated parmesan & black pepper.

Place the other dough on top then just run a wet finger around the edges of the base and fold over and crimp down. Sprinkle with more parmesan.

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.


Normally when I eat pizza I burn the roof of my mouth but I managed to burn my finger and my cheek from the hot sauce oozing out of the side just for a change!

I had some leftover dough so chucked it in the oven for a spare bread bun.

This was dinner… 11th October 2013.

  1. I’m glad I’m not the only person that can’t roll out circles, mine tend to look more like splats, that looks really crispy, I want to try that..
    As for my hair, I gave up with a hairdryer and had it all chopped off, now it’s always an inch all over so i don’t even need to style

Any thoughts?
