Homemade Pizza offers endless possibilities when it comes to flavour and of course it’s much healthier and avoids the highly processed shop bought offerings. Another health study published this week revealed the dangers of eating too much of what it called ‘ultra processed food’. And, although it’s by no means a conclusive study, there is plenty of evidence that shows a healthy lifestyle, eating what I call real food rather than large amounts of processed and convenience foods, is, undoubtedly better for our health and will reduce the likelihood of developing certain illnesses, including T2 diabetes or becoming obese
Making homemade pizza doesn’t require too much planning and its easy to get ahead by having the base sauce made in advance. The sauce I use doesn’t require any cooking and we’ve always found it very tasty. if you’re super organised make a double batch and freeze some for another day.
Chose your Ingredients
Making pizza can be be a fun activity and it gets everyone cooking together. I prep a load of tomatoes, red onions, courgettes, mushrooms, sweetcorn, olives, chillies and offer these with mozzarella, goats or feta cheeses, along with pepperoni, salami or parma ham. I prefer a vegetarian or a smoked salmon pizza but the beauty of making your own is that each person can chose their own favourite toppings. These are the ingredients my family like but homemade pizza is just as tasty with tomato and cheese and maybe some added vegetables or salad to suit your own budget and ingredients.
