I used to be sceptical about making pizzas, always imagining opening the oven only to find a soggy pizza, but luckily I discovered Jamie Oliver's pizza recipe. It is easy to make and the base comes out really crisp and delicious. I second Jamie's suggestion to use Tippo 00 flour. It makes all the difference.
As for the tomato sauce, I fry a thinly sliced clove of garlic in a bit of olive oil before adding a tin of tomatoes and either fresh or dried basil. Let it simmer for a bit and you are ready for the fun part: toppings.
I'm pretty traditional when it comes to pizza - prosciutto with mushrooms is a staple as is pepperoni (with mozarella of course), but there is no reason not to be more adventurous with your toppings.
What are your favourite pizza toppings?
