Frying Pan Pizza.

If you didn’t already know, I love pizza.  Like, seriously. LOVE.

I adore Dominos, I am happiest when I’m sitting in Pizza Express with a plate of balls and a glass of red, and BM (Before Monsters), I used to love making a boxing day pizza following Jamie’s recipies.  People have bought me pizza stones and cutters for birthdays, I love love love.

So when I saw this on the TV the other day I was EXCITED, and decided to try a variation of it for me and the man.  As it was Saturday night we didn’t do the salad.  And I make my own topping sauce.  But LOVED.

Frying Pan Pizza.

For the pizza dough
  1. 250 g strong white bread flour
  2. 250 g plain white flour
  3. 5 g powdered dried yeast
  4. 10 g salt
  5. 325 ml warm water
  6. 1 tbsp olive oil
  7. 1 handful coarse flour, for dusting
  8. 1 tsp sea salt
  9. For the Sauce
  10. Olive Oil
  11. Garlic (chopped)
  12. Oregano
  13. 400g chopped tomatoes
  14. For the Topping
  15. Well โ€“ this is open. I used basic Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil. But you can use whatever you want. I also love BBQ chicken and sweet peppers to.
  1. Pre-heat oven to 220C.
  2. Mix the flours, yeast, salt and water to form a sticky dough. Mix in the oil, then turn out onto a clean work surface and knead until smooth and silky. (Alternatively, if you have a mixer with a dough hook, mix the flours, yeast, salt and water on a low speed add the oil and knead for 10 minutes). Shape into a round and leave in a clean bowl covered with a plastic bag for about an hour, until it has doubled in size. (I used my blender with a dough hook)
  3. To make the tomato sauce, heat olive oil in a pan, add garlic, chopped tomatoes and herbs. Simmer with lid on until reduced to a quick sauce.
  4. Knock back the dough and separate into balls depending on the size of the pan youโ€™re going to use and how thick you like your pizza base โ€“ you can freeze any you donโ€™t use at this point. Roll out the dough into a circle that will fit into your frying pan and sprinkle with sea salt.
  5. Heat some olive oil in an oven-proof frying pan and drop in the pizza base, cook for a couple of minutes until crispy on the bottom then flip over. Turn the heat down and spread the cooked side with tomato relish. Then add the toppings.
  6. Put the whole pan in the oven for a few minutes or until the cheese has melted and the base has finished cooking.
