Pizza day

Here we go Lisa, pizza recipe as promised. :)
You will need:
- 225g self raising flour
- tsp of dried basil
- pinch of salt
- pinch of freshly ground black pepper
- 5tbsp olive oil
- 2tbsp tomato puree (or tomato pasta sauce if you've ran out :) )
- 150g grated cheese
- toppings of your choice.

1 - Place flour, basil, salt and pepper into a bowl. Make a well in the center and add 3tbsp of olive oil and about 6tbsp of water.

2- Stir with a rounded blaced knife (like a palate knife) until the mixture forms large crumbs.

3- Bring together to form a dough. Add a little more water if you need to.

4- Knead lightly and roll out to fit into your frying pan. If its too thick for your taste make two. I prefer thin crust but thats just me. :)

5- Heat some oil in the frying pan and cool dough on a moderate heat for around 5 minutes turn pizza onto a plate and heat some more oil. Side pizza from plate back into pan to cook other side for around 5 minutes.

6- While cooking add tomato, cheese and toppings to pizza. Once base is cooked place under grill to cook cheese and toppings.

7- Enjoy!
