Cheese and veggie pizza

Cheese and veggie pizza


  1.  Sieve the flour and salt on to a clean work surface, and make a well in the middle.
  2. In a jug, mix the yeast, sugar, olive oil and water, and leave it for a few minutes.
  3. Pour the mixture into the well, and mix it together.
  4. Knead until it has a smooth springy touch.
  5. Place the dough in a flour dusted bowl and cover with a damp cloth.
  6. Leave in a warm room for about an hour.
  7. Remove the dough and knead to knock out the air - it is now ready to use.
  8. Roll the dough out to make a nice thin base.
  9. Add tomato puree along with chopped basil.
  10. Sprinkle on the 150g of Pilgrims Choice Mature Cheddar and add the toppings.
  11. Cook on 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5 for 10 to 12 minutes until golden.
