Quick and Easy No Yeast Pizza Dough

I use this base when I don’t have the time to prepare a traditional bread dough base for a pizza.  This is also called a scone or biscuit base, though it doesn’t crisp up at all. The base remains soft and tastes just as good as an authentic Italian pizza.

I used mushrooms and jalapenos out of a jar and store bought pizza sauce. You can vary the taste of your scone base by adding a little grated cheese or 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano or mixed herbs for a more interesting flavour. Add the extra flavourings after rubbing in the butter.

This pizza can be made for breakfast too, as it is so easy to prepare. You can use any topping that you want or just a mixture of different cheeses. Your family will love it.

PREP:  15 minutes  COOK TIME: 30 minutes

Ingredients

175 gms self-raising flour

½ tsp salt

30 gms butter

120 ml milk

Pizza sauce

Mushrooms, sliced

Jalapenos slices

Mozzarella cheese

Instructions

Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and pour in nearly all the milk at once. Mix quickly to make a soft dough and add the remaining milk only if necessary.

Turn the dough on to a floured surface and knead by turning and pressing with the heel of your hand 3 or 4 times.

Roll out or press the dough into a 10 inch circle on a lightly greased baking sheet or pizza pan. Push up the edges all round slightly to form a ridge. Spread with the pizza sauce and scatter the mushrooms, onions and jalapenos on top. Drizzle with a dash of olive oil and season if you want to. Bake for 15 minutes until the edges are crisp and golden. Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake for a further 5 minutes until the cheese has melted.

A Hint Of Spice

Hi. I am Padma and I am passionate about delicious food. Food is amazing in that it can take you to another place and time in your life just by the taste, smell and touch. Even a photograph evokes memories that lie dormant within us. I still remember a coconut candy that I used to eat as a child. Even though it’s not available now, I clearly remember the taste. It takes me back to my childhood pleasures as nothing else can. Being Indian, my palate is so used to spices. I started experimenting by mixing spices with European and other Western cuisines. The result is truly delicious. I love trying out different spices with different recipes. Sometimes I use the powder and sometimes I grind the spices with other herbs, onions, etc in the blender. The result is quite spectacular – a lovely fusion of the East and West. I hope you like my recipes and are inspired enough to try out a few of them. I would love to hear back from you.
