It’s always very satisfying making your own pizza dough, and topping it with your favourite pizza toppings. Pizzas are also fun for kids to help make, they will love spreading the sauce over the dough, and sprinkling over the toppings.

No knead food-processor pizza dough

2 cups plain flour

1½ teaspoons instant fast rise yeast

¾ teaspoon salt

¾ cup hot water 2 teaspoons olive oil


Perfect pizza sauce

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium red onion, thinly sliced

3 cloves garlic, crushed

2 x 400 gram tins diced tomatoes 1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon dried oregano

No knead food-processor pizza dough: Place flour, yeast and salt in a food processor and pulse until blended.With motor running, add water and oil. Process for 1 minute, or until a ball forms. With floured hands, remove dough and form into a round ball. Place in a greased bowl, turning over to grease all around. Let rise for 10 minutes for thin crust. Stretch into pizza pan and top.

Perfect pizza sauce: Heat the oil in a medium pan on a low to medium heat and sauté the onions for approximately 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for another couple of minutes. Add the diced tomatoes, salt, sugar, balsamic vinegar and oregano. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for approximately 30 minutes. Then simmer uncovered for 10-15 minutes until the sauce is reduced and ready to use.

Mexican mince and rocket pizza: Preheat oven to 200°C. Sauté the mince in a pan for a couple of minutes and add the Mexican seasoning mixture. Don’t add any water. Cook for a few more minutes until any moisture evaporates. Remove from the heat. Roll out your pizza dough and spread over the pizza sauce. Add a layer of mozarella and top with the mince and red onion. Place in the oven for 15 minutes. When the pizza is cooked, top with the rocket and squeeze over the lemon juice. Serve immediately.
