Pizza is a fantastic version of fast food, and is quite healthy when you make it yourself.


400g plain flour

100g yellow polenta

2 tsp fine salt

7g dried yeast

1.5 cups warm water


In a bowl, combine dry ingredients then pour warm water into a well in the centre. Mix until dough forms then knead for 5 minutes.

Place dough in a floured bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size. At the same time, soak pizza tile in water for 1 hour.

When dough is ready, place on a floured surface and cut into 6 even pieces.

Preheat oven to 250C and put tile in.

Roll out dough pieces into a rough, round shape to about 3 millimetres thick then top with one of the options below, or make up your own.
