Rambler’s Margarita Pizza

The perfect afternoon pick me up this is super simple pizza that's guaranteed to impress, and is very easy to make...

Ingredients

Dough

  • 500 g Strong White Bread Flour
  • 1 tbsp Fine Sea Salt
  • 7 g Dried Yeast
  • 1 tbsp Golden Caster Sugar

Tomato Sauce

  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 1 bunch Fresh Basil
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 400 g Quality Plum Tomatoes

For The Topping

  • 85 g Mozzarella Cheese

Instructions

  • For the dough, pile the flours and 1 level teaspoon of sea salt onto a clean surface and make a well in the centre.
  • Add the yeast and sugar to 300ml lukewarm water, mix together and leave for a few minutes, then pour into the well.
  • Slowly bring in the flour from the inner edge of the well and mix into the water. Continue to mix– when the dough comes together and becomes too hard to mix, flour your hands and begin to pat it into a ball.
  • Knead the dough by rolling it backwards and forwards, using your hands to stretch, pull and push the dough. Keep kneading for 10 minutes, or until you have a smooth, springy, soft dough.
  • Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover with cling film and leave in a warm place to prove for 45 minutes, or until doubled in size.
  • For the sauce, peel and finely slice the garlic, then pick the basil leaves and finely chop the stalks.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan on a medium-low heat, add the garlic and basil stalks, then cook gently for a couple of minutes, or until the garlic is lightly golden, then add most of the basil leaves, the tomatoes, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Leave the sauce to tick away for around 20 minutes, or until smooth, breaking up the tomatoes up with a wooden spoon. When the time’s up, taste, and season to perfection.
  • To assemble the pizzas, divide the dough into 4 equal balls.
  • Flour each dough ball, then cover with clingfilm, and leave to rest for about 15 minutes – this will make them easier to roll it thinly.
  • Dust a clean surface and the dough with a little flour and roll it out into a rough circle, about ½cm thick.
  • When you're ready to cook them, preheat the oven to 250°C/500°F/gas 9.
  • At this stage you can apply your topping: spread the tomato sauce over the base, spreading it out to the edges. Tear over the mozzarella and scatter with the remaining basil leaves. Drizzle with a tiny bit of olive oil and add a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • If you can, cook the pizzas on a piece of granite – if not, cook them one by one on pieces of tin foil directly on the bars of the bottom oven shelf. Cook for 7 to 10 minutes, until the pizzas are golden and crispy.
  • You can transform this simple pizza into something even more exciting by adding a few extra toppings. Here are some of our favourite: chilli, parsley, tomatoes, peppers, ham, pepperoni, sweetcorn.

Notes

Top Tips

This basic dough recipe can be used for different flavoured breads to accompany dishes of pasta or curry or even a stew. To add flavour to the dough do so after step 1, so things like garlic and chilli powder or different spices or herbs can be added.

I can not recommend kids country enough. I was blown away by this nursery. The staff are absolutely amazing. My little one has come on leaps and bounds since attending. We are heartbroken to be leaving. But thank every single member of staff for making every day an adventure for Finn xxx

We love Kids Country but more importantly our little boy loves it. In the morning he is so happy pointing at the door to get in then once in waddling over to the breakfast table to enjoy breakfast with all his friends & Debs. He doesn't even look back when I leave. When I collect him in the evenings as soon as he spots me he comes over, up into my arms for a big kiss. The girls are great. It's great how they tell you what he's eaten to what they've done in the day, including any cheeky moments. We are so pleased we picked KC and recommend it to everyone X
