1 1/2 cups of plain flour

1 cup wholemeal flour

pinch salt

2 tspns dried yeast

1 cup warm water


1.  Place the yeast in the warm water and allow to sit until it becomes bubbly (about 5 minutes).

2.  Place the flours and salt in a bowl and then pour over the yeast and water.

3. Knead the dough for about 3 minutes.  Form into a ball in a clean bowl and place clingwrap over the top of the bowl.  Place in a warm place to rise to about twice its bulk.

4.  When risen, knock down the dough with a balled fist and then roll out the dough to fit a large pizza pan.  Place onto a lightly oiled pizza pan.  If you want a thin and crispy crust place filling on immediately and then cook.  If you want a thicker crust allow the base to rise for about 20 minutes before placing the toppings.


1 cooked chicken breast (chopped)

3/4 cup of Peanut Sauce

1 cup of baby spinach leaves (chopped)

6 mushrooms (finely sliced)

1/2 red capsicum (finely sliced)

1 cup grated cheese


1.  Spread Peanut Sauce over the pizza and cover with baby spinach leaves.  (You can use baby spinach in a pizza as long as you cover it with cheese or other ingredients.  If you don’t cover it up it will go black. )

Top with chicken and finely sliced mushrooms.  Place grated cheese all over the top of the pizza.  Sprinkle with red capsicums.

2. Place in an oven preheated to 220 C for 15 minutes.

Serves 4


1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

1 tbspn grated ginger

1 tbspn minced garlic

1/2 tbspn brown sugar

1 1/2 cups hot water

4 tbspns lime juice

1 tspn minced chillis (or fresh chopped chillis if you have them)

1 tbspn soy sauce (optional)


Place the peanut butter in a cold pan along with the brown sugar, garlic, ginger, chilli and 1 1/2 cups hot water.  Now start the pan heating while you stir the mixture.   It will look strange at first but simmer gently on a low heat, stirring all the time.  Simmer until sauce reduces to required consistency.  My favourite consistency is a little on the thick side so I cook it until  a wooden spoon pulled through the mixture leaves a line in the pan.  Then stir through the lime juice and soy sauce.    Allow to cool before using on pizza.   If sauce is too thick stir through extra lime juice until you get the consistency you desire.
