Two flavours PIZZA - and the best dough base!

One flavour is booooooring but two pizzas is too much.....Why not make two in one?
I love spicy chicken and garlicky mushroom!
What are your favourite flavours?

RECIPE for one pizza



180 g white pizza flour (00 strong white flour) + 30 g when kneading
125 ml lukewarm water
10 g fresh yeast(room temperature) or 5g instant
1 tbsp olive oil
salt, one pinch
oregano(dry), one pinch
basil(dry), one pinch
sugar, one pinch

1.Crumble fresh/dry yeast with pinch of sugar, 40 ml lukewarm water and a 1 tbsp flour.Stir and leave to foam for 10-15 minutes

2.Mix the flour and salt in a bowl, add olive oil, oregano and basil.Add yeast mixture and the rest of lukewarm water.Mix with a wooden spoon, when the mixture comes together start kneading it using your hands.Add some more flour if the dough is too sticky.Knead for around 5-10 minutes until the dough is very soft.(trust me you will feel the difference). Cover the bowl with a cotton tea towel and put to rise somewhere warm, but NOT hot, until dough has doubled in size - it takes around 1 hour.(remember dough doesn't like draughts!)

3.Preheat the oven 190 C/170 C fan /Gas 5

4.When the dough doubled in size, put it on a lightly floured surface and knead for another 2-3 minutes,roll it out into a large circle and place on a well greased baking tray.

5.Spread with the sauces(one sauce for one half). Sprinkle with cheese and add the toppings for each half.

6.Bake for 30 minutes(I put it on fan for the last 5 minutes)


90g grated cheese
tomato sauce
yellow pepper, 3 slices
1 chicken breast, grilled and chopped
1 red chilli
fresh thyme
sea salt, freshly grounded

TOMATO SAUCE:(ingredients for half a pizza base)

6-7 tbsp tomato purée
1/2 tsp sugar
sea salt, freshly grounded

1.Mix all the ingredients together

Alternatively: use a good quality tomato ketchup


90g grated cheese
garlic sauce

GARLIC SAUCE:(ingredients for half a pizza base)
6 tbsp double cream
1 and 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise

1.Mix all the ingredients together until you get a nice and smooth consistency

This last piece didn't last for long ;-)


  1. I love your photos.. so pretty!! <3 <3 And that pizza just looks like DELICIOUS!!!

  2. What is the measurement on the mayo in the garlic sauce? Thanks!

  3. Hi Sarah,I'm sorry it's two days after....for some unknown reasons I don't receive email with the info about new comments.....grrrrr ;/
    I've just corrected the recipe - it's 6 tbsp of cream to 1 1/2 tbsp of mayo, but you can adjust it to your own taste, add more or less mayo :) Remember the ingredients for the sauce are only for half of the base if you wish to use it for a whole pizza double it up :) Best wishes x
