Channel your inner chefs and whip up delicious pizzas together. Our easy homemade pizza recipe guarantees a scrumptious dinner and is perfect for Little Chefs.

Homemade Pizza Recipe:


300g white bread flour (plus extra for dusting)

1 tsp instant yeast

1 tbsp olive oil

Tomato Sauce:

1 tbsp olive oil

2 crushed garlic cloves

200mL tomatoes (pureed)


8 mozzarella pearls (halved)

Small bunch of fresh basil leaves


  1. Pour the flour into a bowl and stir in the yeast and 1 tsp of salt. Add 200mL warm water (not too hot) alongside the oil. Stir together until the dough turns soft and wet.
  2. Place the dough onto a floured surface and knead for 5 mins until smooth. Cover with a tea towel and leave to prove for an hour until the dough has doubled in size.
  3. While the dough is proving, make the tomato sauce. Heat up a drizzle of oil in a small pan and lightly fry in the garlic, then add the tomatoes and simmer until thickened. Leave to cool.
  4. Once the dough has risen, knead it in a bowl, then place it onto a lightly floured surface and cut it into two balls. Roll out each ball into a thin, large teardrop shape (around 25cm across).
  5. Heat the oven to 475° F. Spread the sauce on the pizza bases and scatter the mozzarella. Then drizzle the olive oil on top and season. Put the pizzas into the oven and bake for 8-10 mins.

If cooking isn’t for you - order takeout and enjoy a cozy afternoon indulgence!
