Lunch Wednesday 11 July - Pizza

Haven't had pizza in ages and I fancied some, so I made one. Next time, I will just go the whole hog and have normal, full-fat cheese. Pizza really needs decent cheese and the half-fat stuff just ain't got the "melt-osity".

1 pizza base (see below)
½ portion Marinara Sauce
125 reduced fat mozzarella cheese
few fresh basil leaves

100g strong white flour
1 teaspoon sugar
5 g yeast
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt

Mix together the yeast with a bit of hand warm water and 1 tsp sugar. Allow to stand until foaming (about 10 mins). Add the flour and olive oil along with sufficient water to make a stiff dough. Knead thoroughly until smooth and elastic. Place in a bowl covered with cling film and stand in a warm place to rise until doubled in bulk (about 45 mins). Knock back and shape into a round. Top with sauce and cheese and bake in a hot oven (Gas 8).
