Let’s be honest here. Often, after a busy day ferrying the kids around to their various activities/parties (sometimes, both!), meal times can get a bit rushed.
This scone base pizza was whipped up in a few minutes and only took 12 minutes to cook. The beauty of using self raising flour is that it doesn’t need proving. These were a big hit in our house this weekend!
Scone Pizza base:
8oz Self raising flour
2tbsp olive oil
400g Tin Toms
1tsp mixed herbs
1tsp red wine vinegar
Toppings (the choice is yours – I used the following)
2 black pitted olives
Start off by Pre heating your oven to 200•C, gas mark 6. Then start to make the base. Place the flour, oil and water into a bowl and mix into a good dough.
Turn the dough out onto a clean, lightly floured surface.
Sprinkle some flour on top of the dough and make into a ball. Divide into two.
If you’d like round bases, get the base of a cake tin, pop some baking paper top and then place one of the balls onto it.
Use a rolling pin to get nice, round bases.
Now it’s time to make the passata. Tip the tin toms, herbs and vinegar into a saucepan. Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer. If necessary, use a hand held blender to get a smooth sauce (I didn’t need to).
When the sauce is lovely and thick, remove from the heat. Leave to cool for a few minutes.
Now you are ready to decorate your pizza. Smear the sauce over the bases, leaving a nice edge.
On top of the passata, sprinkle your grated cheese.
Then place two round pre cut pepperoni slices onto each base (eyes). I then used the end of a clean bottle opener to make smaller round pepperoni pieces (for the nose and mouth). Place them onto the base.
Next up, I cut two black (pitted) olives in half and popped them on top of the eyes.
Once ready, pop into the preheated oven for 12-14 minutes.
Place onto individual plates, use some rocket for the hair and sliced Tomatoes for the hair.
We hope you enjoy making these – meal times don’t get any more fun than this! Did they eat the rocket, you might ask? Oh yes, they did!! Parent points, right there 👍🏻
