For the pizza dough:
  • 3 1/4 cups strong white bread flour
  • 2 tsp fast-action dried yeast
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup of lukewarm water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp dried Italian herbs
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
For the topping:
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 cup sliced closed cup mushrooms
  • 1 cup mini mozzarella balls
  • 1/4 tsp dried Italian herbs
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  1. To make the dough, add the water in a jug, mix in the yeast, olive oil and sugar and a teaspoon of flour and set aside for 10 minutes.

  2. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt, then, pour in the yeast mixture, garlic powder and herbs.

  3. Knead into a dough for 5 minutes until it's elastic and no longer sticks to your hand.
  4. Shape the dough into a ball.
  5. Slightly oil the bowl and the dough, cover with clingfilm and a clean tea towel, then leave to prove for 1-2 hours until it doubles its size.
  6. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 Fahreneheit).

  7. Transfer the dough to a lightly-floured work surface, knead it around for a bit to push the air out, then divide it into two equal balls and roll one ball to the size of your pizza pan.
  8. You can either make the second pizza at the same time, or wrap it in clingfilm and refrigerate the second dough ball to use it later on.
  9. Sprinkle some salt over the mushrooms and put them on the grill for 3-4 minutes.
  10. Cut the peppers into strips.
  11. Spread the tomato passata over, sprinkle some dried Italian herbs, grated Cheddar cheese, mushrooms, peppers, olives and mini Mozzarella balls
  12. Sprinkle some oregano on top, then one pizza is ready to go in the oven.
  13. Bake for 10 minutes, then increase the oven temperature to 200 degrees Celsius (390 Fahreneheit), and bake for a further 5-10 minutes or until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted.

  14. Serve hot!
