A delicious & straightforward homemade pizza. The base is made from spelt flour before being topped with sheep's cheese and succulent strips of yellow pepper.
Homemade pizza is a winning meal for Mr E & I. Easy to make, comforting, delicious, stringy cheese, topped with our favourite flavours, what's not to like? Whether it's a simple margarita with tomatoes & mozzarella, a feta topped pizza with pesto or even one with butternut squash, goats' cheese and thyme; we regularly choose to make our own.
For the past couple of years we've loved making our own pizza bases. They're delicious and so easy to make. After a quick mini-workout of kneading, the dough is set aside to allow the yeast to work its magic. In fact, I often make our dough in the morning and allow it to prove for several hours in the fridge. It sounds strange, I know, as most recipes call for bread / pizza dough to be proved at room temperature for an hour or so, but by popping the covered dough in the fridge and forgetting about it for a few hours more flavour is allowed to develop resulting in an even tastier pizza! Half an hour before you're ready to eat, simply remove the dough from the fridge, shape it, top it and bake it!
