It’s Pizza Friday!

I doubt anyone can resist the temptation of a delicious pizza. And they always taste better after a night of heavy drinking to celebrate the end of the week! I particular enjoy the taste of homemade pizzas, given the fact I am one of those people who likes to go crazy with the toppings. Whether you like a plain old Margherita or a rich Meat Lovers, one of the best things of making pizzas at home is that you can put whatever you want on it!

The pizza dough recipe I used came from a Pizza Margherita recipe on BBC Good Food. (Link: ) It is very easy to adapt to make any types of pizza you want!


Quantity: 2 pizzas


300g strong white/bread flour

1 tsp instant yeast

1 tsp salt

200ml warm water

1 tbsp olive oil

Toppings of your choice


  1. Place the flour in a large bowl. Stir yeast and salt into the flour.
  2. Make a well in the flour mixture, and pour in water and olive oil. Mix until well-combined and you have a soft, fairly wet dough.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 5 minutes and until smooth.
  4. Cover and set aside before use. (You do not need to leave the dough to rise but it is not essential for a thin crust.)
  5. Prepare the toppings.
  6. Roll out the dough on a floured surface. The dough needs to be very thin as it will rise when baking in the oven.
  7. Pre-heat oven to 240C/fan 220C /gas 8.
  8. Place toppings on pizza and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until crisp and toppings cooked.

Why not give it a try to start your weekend? Have it ready to cure your hangover the next day!
