Five-a-Day Homemade Take-away


Five-a-Day Homemade Take-away

We love a pizza in our house, especially with two young boys who I think would actually live off of them if I allowed it! But homemade pizza seems  a far better option compared to calling the local delivery and it’s a great way to get the kids involved, getting in their five-a-day and it is also a good workout!

Pizza Base:

  • 250g plain white flour
  • 250g wholemeal flour
  • 1 1/2 tsps Himalayan salt
  • I tsp dried yeast
  • 1 tbls olive oil
  • 325ml warm water
  1. Mix the two flours together in a large bowl with the yeast and salt. Add the oil and warm water and mix to a rough dough. Tip out on to a work surface and knead for 5-10 minutes. Try not to add too much flour while kneading as this will effect the texture of your bread. This kneading is great for an arm workout!
  2. Oil a clean bowel with a little olive oil adding the dough, turning it, so it is lightly covered in a little oil. Cover with a clean tea towel and leave in a warm place to double in size. I always leave mine for a few hours.
  3. When the dough is well risen, tip it out and knock out the air by poking it with your fingers.
  4. This is  where I divide the dough into 4 portions and then roll them out into circles.


  • 3-4 tbls Tomato Passata mixed with some dried oregano
  • Organic Mozzarella
  • Freshly sliced tomatoes
  1. Top with vegetables of your choice but don’t go over board as this can result in a soggy pizza!
  2. Bake in a pre-heated oven of 250oC  for about 10 minutes.

All the ingredients I use are always organic – and for more from me on Food. Fashion. Fun head to FreshNesh
