“A lean way to eat pizza.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. I made a bread dough with 8 oz wholemeal flour and 4 oz malted flour, a large pinch of salt, a teaspoon of sugar and 1/2 a sachet of instant yeast.
  2. I made it in the food processor, using the dough hooks, and added just enough warm water until it came together in a ball.
  3. Kneaded it, partly by machine and partly by hand, until it was smooth and no longer sticky, then put it in a clean bowl, covered with a plate, in the airing cupboard for about an hour.
  4. Incidentally, I've never felt the need to coat it with oil- it stays moist enough.
  5. While it was rising, I made the filling of an onion, chopped, 2 cloves of garlic, crushed, 3 tomatoes, peeled and chopped, a red.
  6. (bell) pepper, peeled and chopped, 2-3 oz cheese (I didn't weigh it; just a"nice amount"), grated.
  7. Mixed all together in a bowl and seasoned with salt, freshly ground black pepper, lemon juice.
  8. (about 1/2- 1 tablespoonful, didn't measure!), Worcester sauce, paprika and cayenne pepper (Not a lot, Curtis; you can add some more!).
  9. Rescued the dough, knocked it down, divided it into three.
  10. Rolled it out very thin on floured surface, roughly circular, piled 1/3 of the filling on each"circle", brushed edges with water, sealed, and placed on greased baking-sheet.
  11. Baked at gas mark 7 (425 F).
  12. for 20 minutes.
  13. Served with green salad.
  14. The family wants this again very often, so they tell me!
