Homemade Pizza for Tea

(Updated below)

I made pizza from scratch for the first time ever.

Dough was mixed using the bread maker.

Each family member got to choose their own toppings on their individual pizzas.

Fresh herbs from the garden.

Pizza will never be the same again - it was so yummy and filling.

And this is what helped make it so yummy:  Fresh home-grown herbs.


  1. I can almost smell it!!! How about sharing the recipe for the dough? I'd be interested to know whether you use any oil with it, or just (like myself) flour, water, salt and yeast.

  2. Thanks for finding your way to my blog Librarian.
    I just used the recipe that came with the breadmaker:
    325ml Water
    2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    600g / 4 cups bread flour
    2 1/2 teaspoons Tandaco Yeast

    I then used the "Dough" program on the machine: 1st knead 3 minutes; 2nd knead 27 minutes; 1st rise 1 hour. Makes 1 kg dough.

    Roll out dough into lightly floured surface into rounds. I made 3 smaller rounds for the children, then one big rounded rectangular type shape for the parents. Place onto lightly greased oven tray. Sprinkle or spread pizza with selected pizza toppings.

    Bake in pre-heated oven at 200 deg C for 12 - 15 minutes or until base is cooked and topping heated through.

    We've been making this about once a week since, and have agreed to never buy pizza takeaway again.
