Pizza base

Step 1

Make up to packet instructions and allow 30 mins for the dough to prove. We make up the whole pack then weigh out 70g balls of dough – the ones we don’t use we freeze.

Step 2

Roll as thin as you can onto a piece of baking parchment – you may need to spray your rolling pin with low calorie cooking spray to prevent sticking.

Tomato sauce

Step 1

Throw all ingredients into a pan, bring up to the heat then turn down and simmer for 30 minutes stirring often

Step 2

Once cooked, attack with a stick blender or blitz in a food processor until smooth.

Step 3

Place into a sterilised jar until ready for use. Will last a week in the fridge or you can freeze it. Perfect for batch booking.

Chicken and bacon

Step 1

Chop up the bacon and chicken and place on an oven tray.

Step 2

When the dough is proving, place on an oven tray and cook in the oven for 20 minutes until cooked. Do not put raw meat on your pizza!!

Pizza assembly

Step 1

After you have rolled out your dough, place a small amount of tomato sauce and spread it around.

Step 2

Start with your chicken and bacon – as little or as much as you like.

Step 3

Next your peppers, onions and mushrooms.

Step 4

Next your cheese – make sure to distribute it evenly. On top of that dot around some fresh tomato pieces.

Step 5

Place some onions on the top – not too many though, you don’t want them to burn.

Step 6

Place in an oven pre-heated to 200°C for 12 minutes.

Hello I really want to make this it says 1 packet of Aldi whole meal bread mix but when I’ve had a look it’s over 500 grams the bag so I’m not sure how much to use for one portion? Thank you 🙂

    HollyWednesday 25th May 2022

    Hey Laura, we divide the bread mix once mixed into 70g dough balls and one of those balls is one portion for the pizza, then the unused dough balls we freeze. Hope that helps!

For the pizza base the instructions says you need 350mls water but doesn’t when to add it.

Also I’m finding it difficult to get wholemeal breadcrumbs so going to make my own. Any tips on how to do this greatly appreciated.

    HollyTuesday 24th May 2022

    Hey Julie, for this recipe we used a wholemeal bread mix that you just add water to, I’ve just had a look online and similar products are available from Sainsbury’s, Asda and Tesco. The first step of the recipe is to make the bread mix according to the packet instructions this is when you would add the water. Hope that helps!

For someone that vetoed pizza from their diet for a long time as it’s too caloric. I really enjoyed trying this & can’t wait to have another pizza night 😃

A silly question, but what is one portion here?

I’ve looked and looked but seem to be missing it.

    Steve CowderoyTuesday 12th May 2020

    Hi Paddy, thanks for getting in touch with us. This pizza is 1 portion, if you think it is too much you can half the portion when cooked and serve with an accompaniment of your choice. Hope this helps

I’m sorry if this is a dumb question but how can you have “1/2 tsp Chicken Breast cut into small strips”? 1/2 tsp wouldn’t even cover my thumb nail.

    KateSunday 5th February 2017

    Hi Helen
    It’s a typo. The tsp should not be there, it should be 1/2 a chicken breast. It has been corrected

any hints and tips to stop it sticking so much on baking paper? sprayed with frylight and couldnt get the base off at all 🙁

Reply

    KateSaturday 23rd April 2016

    Hi Beth,
    Try lining the tray with baking parchment (not greaseproof paper) if you’re having problems with sticking. Parchment is treated with silicone, so it’s non-stick, moisture-resistant and can handle high temperatures, which makes it great for baking, especially if the recipe doesn’t include any fat, like the pizza base.

A quick and tasty alternative for the tomato sauce is a tablespoon of tomato puree, crushed garlic (to taste!) and a teaspoon of Italian mixed herbs, just stir and use – makes enough for a pitta bread sized pizza.

    Thanks for the tip Hilary, great if you don’t have the time to make the sauce from scratch.
