Pizza base

  • 400gms wholemeal bread flour
  • 100gms quinoa flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 7gms fast action yeast sachet
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 250mls warm water


  • 200mls passata
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
  • Salt to taste


  • Toppings of choice – I used mozzarella, tomatoes , sweet corn  and peas to decorate


  • Pre-heat the oven to 200’C
  • Mix all the dry ingredients first.
  • Make a well in the middle of the flour
  • Add the olive oil to the water and pour it into the the well.
  • Slowly mix all the flour and water together to form a dough.
  • Cover with a damp cloth and leave to rise in a warm place (I put it near a radiator). It will double so use a large bowl. If you’re in a rush I have used the dough straight away too and it’s still good
  • To make the tomato sauce, heat the passata, olive oil, salt and dried herbs in a saucepan and simmer until it thickens – about 10 minutes
  • Divide the dough into 4 and roll as thin as you like your base, top with the tomato sauce and your choice of toppings


  • Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes depending on how thick your base is.
  • You want the edges a bit crispy & the cheese melted


  • Top tip – make extra dough and pop it into the freezer for use another day
