    V4M - pizza dough doesn't need much fat as a rule, just olive oil is enough. I usually make a basic dough recipe just using strong flour, yeast, salt, sugar and olive oil. Works fine, it's usually a Jamie Oliver recipe I follow I think.
    Thats exactly what I did, the criticism was not enough fat :o

    The Jamie Oliver one I'm pretty sure uses more oil

    I used to use a Gordon Ramsey one which was 4 or 5 tablespoons of oil. That was the one I posted the pic of that you admired ( sure it was you )

    Also kneading it with oil instead of flour makes for a tasty crisp base. Just don't use the extra virgin - a tad too over powering

    Thanks, I'll give it a go and make garlic bread out of it. Can't bear to waste good vegetables on it if its only going to end up in the bin :(

    Today I have made peanut butter cookies which are simply odd and the mixture did not behave at all. I am blaming the flour. The kids say they taste fine.

    Baked another fruit cake, which is lovely, and I had a bit of mixture left over so I put it into 6 bun tins and they are rather magnificent, if I say so myself, with a cup of tea. The kids seem to like Christmas cake one year and not the next, so I have stopped making a big one weeks in advance as sometimes it just turns out it is only me eating it, and just make a souped up fruitcake with boozy fruit once a week for December. They are eating it this year.

    Biscotti x 3 varieties... Chocolate & candied ginger, cranberry & pistachio and gluten-free date & walnut. All for gifting.

    Have to say next time I bake GF biscotti, I would add xanthan gum as it spread a little too much, but DH reckons it tastes great!
