Scone pizza

Another savoury recipe! This time, it's a quick version of a favourite food of mine - pizza. 

The Italians are going to hate me for this. Instead of making a beautiful, yeasty dough (à la Jamie), I've just mixed butter and flour with a little bit of milk, rolled it out and spread it with tomato purée. I'm in such a time-saving mode that I haven't even bothered to make my own pizza sauce! (It's okay if you feel the need to slap me on the wrist.)

This would be quite a fun recipe to make with children, if you want to step up from pitta pizzas. By making individual pizzas they can each pick what they want on it, so there are no arguments about ham/tomatoes/olives! In addition, they cook quicker than a large one, too, so by the time you've done the washing up, lunch will be ready. 

Tip: prepare all the toppings before you begin and place them in little ramekins. Not only will this make it easier when it comes to adding them onto the pizzas, it makes you feel like a pro chef. Win-win!

 Make a simple dough by rubbing butter into flour. 

Add a little milk to combine it all together. 

Roll out and spread with tomato purée. 

Use your imagination for toppings! Here I've used artichokes in oil, mushrooms and peppers.

Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese - sorry, Italy! - and a little bit of Parmesan. 

A little bit rustic-looking, but crispy and absolutely delicious! 

Scone Pizza (serves 3
8oz (225g) self-raising flour
2oz (55g) soft butter
Pinch of salt
Splash of milk
3 tbsp tomato purée
1oz (30g) Cheddar cheese (or similar), grated
Toppings - eg. mushrooms, ham, chicken, peppers, tomatoes…

1. Heat the oven to 220°C. Prepare all the toppings and flour a baking tray. 

2. Rub the butter into the flour. Add in the salt and a little milk until the dough comes together. 

3. Divide the dough into three even pieces and roll out each one on a floured work surface  until it is roughly the thickness of a £1 coin. 

4. Spread a tablespoon of tomato purée onto each pizza and top with vegetables and cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes until crispy and cooked the whole way through.
