Italian Fakeaway: Pizza

Pizza but make it mini! Add your favourite toppings to this fun recipe and get the kids involved (it’s much more affordable than takeaway pizza).



  • Add the flour to a large bowl, sprinkle some salt on the left and add the yeast to the right. Add the sugar in the middle, pour in the oil and 190ml of warm water and combine until a dough forms.

  • Dust a clean work surface with flour and knead the dough for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Oil a clean bowl, place the dough in the middle, cover with clingfilm and leave to rise for an hour in a warm area of the home.


  • Add the passata to a pan a long with the basil and mixed herbs, add salt and pepper and simmer for 5 minutes then leave to cool. (Take this time to prepare your toppings also).

  • Preheat the oven to 220C, knock the air out of the dough and divide into 6 pieces. Roll each piece of dough out into a circle, toss the dough up while spinning and catch on the back of your hand. Repeat until the crust is thicker than the centre.

  • Place on to a baking tray lined with baking paper, cover and leave to rise for 20 minutes.

  • Once risen, spread the sauce on top, add the cheese and your chosen toppings. Cook for 15 minutes.
