Easy fresh chorizo, red pepper and chilli pizza

    40 min

    It's a myth that pizza is hard to make at home. This recipe proves that no only is it easy, but its fast too and probably the best pizza you've ever tasted. Make a couple and freeze them too if you're so inclined! It's as good as ordering pizza delivery.

    Makes: 1 pizza

    • 300g strong plain bread flour
    • 1 teaspoon dried active yeast
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 200ml warm water
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 125ml passata
    • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
    • 1 handful chopped fresh basil

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat oven to 240 C / Gas 8.
    2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast and salt and then make a well in the centre.
    3. Pour the warm water into the middle and work it in to create a smooth dough texture. Knead until fully smooth and stretchy, about 5 minutes.
    4. Use a rolling pin and roll out to a 2mm thick circle. Place on a pizza baking tray and let rest for 5 minutes.
    5. Mix the passata with crushed garlic and basil, and spread all over the base. Add the torn up pieces of fresh mozzarella and add any other toppings you want. Scatter the chorizo all over the base along with the peppers and chopped up chilli.
    6. Bake in the hot oven until base is crisp and browned to your liking, about 8 to 10 minutes. This cooks extremely fast as it is fresh and very thin.
