Today’s recipe is a bit different from my previous ones, but gave me life when we had it for supper, lunch the next day and breakfast this morning.
The recipe is divided into three parts. This might sound daunting but believe me when I say the recipe is so easy that my husband successfully tried and tested it this morning. So yes, the recipe is ‘hubby approved’.
Before jumping in and getting your ingredients out make sure to read through the recipe and make sure you have everything needed to make the recipe.
The recipe makes a small to medium pizza, so if you are making for a family, I suggest doubling the ingredients.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- Mixing bowl
- Frying pan and stove
- Oven or convection oven: Our oven is currently broken but luckily we have one of those small portable convection ovens and it worked perfectly
- Oven size plate or dish
- 250g Self-Raising Flour
- 125ml Water
- A pinch of salt
Toppings: You can use any toppings that you have available, which adds to the appeal of this recipe.
- Tomato paste to cover base
- ½ of a Red Pepper
- ½ of an Onion
- 2 Chicken breasts
- Top it off with some island sauce
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Part 1: Toppings
- Prepare any raw toppings first. We started by steaming our chicken breasts until cooked through. Then fried the onions and peppers until lightly browned.
- Set your toppings to the side.
Part 2: Dough
- Add flour to a mixing bowl. Add in salt and water and mix. While mixing you might need to add in small amounts of water to achieve a dough-like consistency. If you add in too much water and your mixture becomes runny, do not give up because you can easily fix it by adding in flour again.
- Once the ingredients are mixed and you achieve the right consistency it will start to look like dough.
- Add flour to a clean part of your counter top and hands. Take the mixture out of the mixing bowl, place it on the sprinkled flour and knead the dough until all air pockets and inconsistencies are removed. This is not an hour process and should only take a few minutes.
Part 3: Cooking
- Heat a frying pan on medium heat. Then add your dough to the frying pan, making sure to evenly spread it out in the pan so it starts to look like the base of your pizza.
- Add your toppings onto the dough CREATIVELY and lightly press the toppings into the dough.
- Leave the pizza on medium heat for 15 – 20 minutes until the base is crispy but not burnt.
- Heat the oven to 180 degrees while waiting for your base to crisp.
- Remove the pizza from the frying pan and place it in an oven-safe dish.
- Add to oven and cook for 10 – 15 min.
- Serve and enjoy
I hope you enjoy your pizzas and try some interesting pizza combinations.
