HM Pizza and tomato sauce

ingredients, this is for a triple batch,


For the dough

20g dried yeast
3 tsp salt
dessertspoon sugar
1500g bread flour
drizzle oil, plus extra for greasing 5p
1 litre lukewarm water

For the tomato sauce

300g onions, sliced into rings
garlic paste 30g

6 cans chopped tomatoes

90g tom puree

freshly ground black pepper
250g cheese to sprinkle

put yeast in approx 300ml hand hot water with sugar, leave to stand in a warm place until a frothy head has formed.

Meanwhile warm flour on top of your oven while it cooks something else!

add the salt to the flour, then a drizzle of oil, then begin to add the warm yeasty water.

when that’s combined, add more hand hot water until you have a dough which comes away cleanly from the sides of the bowl.

divide this dough into 12 equal portions and stretch them into thin discs approx 9 ins in diameter, on baking sheets.

Put these in a warm place for approx 45 mins to 1 hr until fat and puffy.

While this is happening, prep your sauce: fry the onions and seasonings in the oil, add tomatoes and reduce down until a thick glossy sauce,  when the pizza bases are puffed, pop them in a gas 6 oven for 2 mins, remove, ladle on 1/12th of the sauce spreading thinly, bake for 4 more mins, then sprinkle with cheese (1/12th) and bake again til cheese melts.

Just after sprinkling with the cheese before last baking is the best time to freeze these 🙂
