Takeaway too expensive? Try this yummy homemade pizza instead, shouldn't cost too much and ingredients will last ages so you can use whenever you want.


  • 1/2 a mug Self Raising Flour
  • Tbsp Olive Oil (optional)
  • Tsp Dried Basil
  • 2 1/2 tbsp Warm water
  • 100g Pasata
  • Pinch Salt and Pepper
  • Pinch Favourite herbs
  • Half Red onion
  • 50g Cheese


  1. To make the base, put flour, water and basil into a mixing bowl and mix until forming a soft dough. Add the olive oil for authentic Italian flavour.
  2. Need dough until pliable and mould into pizza shape (flat round circle).
  3. Leave on baking tray to one side
  4. To make the sauce, mix the Pasata, salt and pepper and your favourite herbs (I usually put in paprika and garlic) until forming a smooth sauce. Spread sauce on pizza base.
  5. Dice onion and sprinkle on top. Grate cheese and put on top of this.
  6. This makes a simple cheese and tomato pizza, but if you want other toppings, put them on at this point.
  7. Bake in the oven at gas mark 7 for 20 minutes until base golden brown and cheese bubbly.
