A Very Fast Soda Bread Pizza!

Summer time, gardens, children, friends, Barbeques & Pizza are some the main ingredients for a great day with the family! Pizza is so easy to make but some people are put off by the thought of getting the yeast, proving the dough and all that - so here is a simple soda bread dough that you can make in five minutes and the pizza then takes another 10 minutes!

This is based on a traditional Irish white Scone Bread mix with a wee twist and it works perfectly every time. 

My ingredients:
For the dough -makes two 10” pizzas
800g plain white flour
½ tspn baking powder
A few twists of ground black pepper
A few twists of ground sea salt
½ tspn mixed Herbs
½ tspn finely chopped garlic
2 tbls olive or rapeseed oil
125ml cold water
You can buy Pizza trays cheap in any hardware or discount shop.

My Method:
Heat your oven to 180ÂșC.
  1. Put all the dry ingredients into a large bowl and stir with a whisk to mix well. Add the oil and stir.
  2. Now add ¾ of the cold water and with your hand pull the mix into a dough. Add a little more water if you need to. When the dough comes together in the centre dust it with a little flour and turn it out onto your table.
  3. Cut in half and roll out into two thin circles the size of your pizza trays. Place in the oven and bake for 5 minutes. Remove and leave aside.
For the topping
1x jar of Tomato Sauce for Bolognaise
Thinly sliced peppers, Salami, onions, olives, bacon or any topping of your choice
Chopped fresh herbs
150g Mozzarella cheese sliced
Grated Irish Cheddar or Goats cheese of your choice


My Method:
Spread the sauce on the half-baked pizza base. Place your sliced meats, vegetables & herbs on top and finish with the mozzarella and grated cheese. Pop into the oven for another 6-8 minutes and serve immediately.

Experiment with toppings like prawns and cheese sauce, potato slices and chorizo, vegetables of all kinds sliced very thin, bacon and blue cheese or anything else you like!
