By Rosana McPhee •


Only two more days of National Pizza Week left and more pizza baking from our Great British Chefs bloggers.  Rosana McPhee from Hot & Chilli has a lovely pizza dough recipe and shares some of her favourite, slightly unusual, toppings.  And yes, we're starting with one for those who think sweet pizza is wrong!

Ingredients

1 package active dry yeast

1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

2 cups flour

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons white sugar

Method

{C}1.  In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until frothy, about 5-10 minutes.

{C}2.   In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, olive oil, salt, white sugar and the yeast mixture; stir well to combine.

{C}3.  Knead well until a stiff dough has formed. Cover and rise until doubled in volume, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200 C.

4. Turn dough out onto a well floured surface. Form dough into pieces and roll out into a pizza shape. Cover with your favourite sauce and toppings and bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
