wanna try my hand at making my own bases on ze weekend ....... must find recipe :D
Remember the cooking thread? *thwacks you upside the head with a peanut*

Allow me to reiterate:

Pizza - from scratch!

4 cups of flour
1 2g sachet of yeast
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup luke-warm water

Mix together by hand and add flour every now and then until it has a firm yet soft consistency. Stuff in a large bowl, cover with a cloth and place it in a warm/sunny area for about an hour.

In the mean time you can start making the tomato covering/pizzaiola (no idea if that's the correct term, I found it on a site and it sounds know-howy :))

Chop and fry one onion and 2 gloves of garlic
Add 2 tins of chopped tomato and cook until it's reduced
Blend in a food processor and spread it over the base when done! :D

Should make 3 bases.

My favourite toppings are:

Peppadews
Gorgonzola Igor
Mozzarella
Cheddar
Feta
Garlic
Mushrooms
Peppers
Pineapple - other half likes it :)

The Gorgonzola and peppadews work wonderfully together. As a vegetarian there are also some fake strips of "meat" that I like to add as well - I love them. Also fake bacon bits :D

Oh, and the bases are crispy bases when thin! Can also leave them to rise a little to make them thicker, but I like my bases thin, so.. :D Also, when rolling out the bases, it helps to roll them out in flour so they don't stick to the pizza tray and they end up being very.. er... nice :x I likes flour ^.^
