Prep time: 15 mins

Total time: 30 mins
Serves: makes 3 pizzas
Dietary preferences: Gluten-free option, Vegetarian option, Pescetarian option, Nut-free
- 185g (1 ½ cup) self-raising wholemeal flour (or gluten-free self-raising flour)
- 245g (1 cup) plain Greek yoghurt
- oil spray
- Place the flour and yoghurt in a large bowl and mix until a dough forms.
- Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface.
- Knead the dough, adding more flour as needed if the dough feels too sticky, for 8-10 minutes. Divide the dough into 3 even pieces and roll out each piece to your desired thickness.
- Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F). Place a baking tray in the oven to preheat for 5 minutes.
- Remove the tray from the oven and lightly spray with oil spray. Transfer the pizza dough to the prepared tray and pre-bake in the oven for 5 minutes.
- Remove the pizza bases from the oven and add some toppings. Here are a few different pizza topping ideas:
- Margherita pizza — top the base with sliced tomato, mozzarella, finely sliced basil and freshly ground black pepper. Return to the oven.
- Smoked salmon — layer some slices of smoked salmon with cream cheese, finely sliced red onion, capers and rocket.
- Fruit pizza — top the pizza base with some ricotta and add sliced mango, strawberries, blueberries, some mint, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Once all the toppings are on, the fruit pizza is ready to eat — don’t put it back in the oven!
- Depending on your topping choice, you can serve straight away or return to the oven. If you are making a margarita or smoked salmon pizza, once you’ve returned the pizza to the oven, continue to cook it for a further 8-10 minutes or until the toppings are cooked and the edges are golden brown. Enjoy!
