    How about making a flat bread as a pizza base? Just plain flour, baking powder, olive oil and water!

    Not sure exact quantites really matter as Lesley Waters just just chucked it all in a bowl and mixed it up on Ready Steady Cook last night :rotfl:
    That's pretty much the way I make a scone base - except I'm lazy and use self raising flour :)

    It's in the Main Courses section of our Old Style Recipe Collection.

    You can find them in our "Indexed Collections" sticky at the top of the forum listing, or you can follow the clue in my signature any time you see it or...

    ..you can use the Indexed Collections link in the Blue Bar at the top of every page which looks something like this:-

    There's one in Shirley Goode's book using yoghurt :

    4oz wholewheat flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    yoghurt to mix
    1 tbsp oil (to cook)

    Mix to a soft dough, roll out into a thin circle. Then she cooks it on one side in a frying pan in the oil for 1/2 minute, turns it over, adds the sauce, toppings etc then cooks under a grill for 2-3 minutes until cheese etc hot and bubbling. I remember trying it about 8 years ago and it was fine. Don't know why I haven't done it since really.

    thanks carol how much does it make what size pizza... i really want to try it.. how much yoghurt?
  • Oh Carol, talking of using a frying pan, that reminds me of a very quick and easy pizza that Nick Nairn made on Ready Steady Cook once ... which I've managed to track down and is here :)

    Obviously you can choose your own toppings and don't have to use the same as he did, but the idea is good!

    Sorry it doesn't give any dimensions as such. It just says to roll out to fit a "large" frying pan, there's not that much flour so you could always increase the recipe if you have a really large pan. Mine's about 8-9 inches in the base I guess. As for youghurt it just says yoghurt to mix so add it gradually until it's mixed to a soft dough, not too sticky and not too dry, so it can be rolled out ok.

    Thanks Curry Queen for the tip above, that does look like a similar idea and I like the idea of cooking it quickly like that.
  • Yes, I like that idea too and after watching him do it I thought it would be something I'd like to try, but as usual I forgot all about it LOL! ... until you mentioned the frying pan that is, so cheers hun! :T

    My breadmaker arrived this afternoon so I should really be trying out pizza dough in that now!! Can't wait to try it but it may have to wait until weekend as I'm trying to paint son's bedroom at the mo.
  • I knew I had a recipe somewhere! I've used this recipe and it does work and taste nice ;)

    Ingredients
    1 1/2 cups plain flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup water
    2 tablespoons olive oil

    Method
    Place 1 1/2 cups plain flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder
    and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Make a well in the middle and add 1/2 cup water and 2 tablespoons olive oil.

    Combine by gradually imixing the flour into the olive oil and water, adding some extra water if you need it. You can use a food processor to do this if you wish.

    Place dough on a floured surface and knead wll until smooth and elastic, approx 5 - 8 minutes

    Roll or shape into a circle, top with your fav pizza sauce and add toppings. Cook in a medium oven until base is done.

    Eat and enjoy!!
