How to make your own mini pizzas

Why eat out with the girls, when you can all have a night in with some mini pizzas? And now, thanks to this easy recipe, you don’t even have to load up on the frozen brands. Yay!

What you’ll need:

  • ½ tsp active dry yeast
  • 285g white spelt flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 300g tomatoes
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • Tomatoes

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C
  2. For the bases, mix the yeast with 170ml of lukewarm water, cover and set aside in a warm room for about 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile make the sauce. Heat the oil in a pan and gently fry the onion and garlic until the onions start to go soft. Add a splash of water to cool then add the remaining ingredients.
  4. Simmer for 15 minutes, or until thickened. Set aside until ready to construct the pizzas.
  5. For the bases, whisk the yeast and water mixture and set aside for another five minutes.
  6. Place the spelt flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the yeast mixture. Mix to combine then turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for 5–10 minutes until smooth and silky to the touch, adding a little more flour if necessary.
  7. Divide the bread dough into eight pieces, roll each piece into a ball and place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment and flatten into a circle.
  8. Smear on some tomato sauce followed by your choice of toppings and bake for five minutes. Rotate and bake for a further five minutes, or until the base is crisp.
