About this recipe: This is a rich deep-dish pizza that calls for a creamy sauce instead of the usual tomato. Using an array of shop-bought ingredients means you have time to make your own pizza base, which is both easy and immensely satisfying!

  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil

  • 280g mozzarella cheese, grated
