Want a homemade pizza but you've run out of bread flour and yeast? Not a problem with this scone pizza, which utilises a scone base made with self raising flour, rather than traditional yeasted pizza dough.

SCONE BASE PIZZA


We love homemade pizza in this house, and making them just got a whole lot easier with this quick and easy scone pizza

Made with self raising flour, there's no need to prove the pizza 'dough' as it is yeast free. That means you can be enjoying delicious homemade pizza within 30 minutes.

It's a great recipe for the kids to get involved with too. They love mixing the scone dough and choosing their toppings for the pizza.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR THE YEAST FREE SCONE PIZZA BASE


To make the scone pizza base, all you need is butter, milk and self raising flour. If you only have plain flour in your cupboard, don't fret.

You can make your own homemade self raising flour by mixing 2tsp of baking powder with 150g plain flour. Store the flour in a clean dry container with a secure lid.

EQUIPMENT NEEDED


The only equipment you need for this scone pizza recipe is a bowl for mixing the dough, and a rolling pin. For a simple tomato and mozzarella topping, a chopping board and grater will also be useful.

STEP BY STEP SCONE PIZZA RECIPE


Step 1: Rub 25g cold cubed butter into 125g self raising flour, with a pinch of salt added.

Step 2: When breadcrumbs form, it's time to add the milk.

 Step 5: Knead the dough in the bowl for a minute to make it nice and smooth.

Step 6: If you'd like to add some cheese to the dough, it's time to do it now. Knead in 25g of grated cheddar until it is combined within the dough.

Step 7: Roll out the scone dough with a rolling pin on a floured surface. I like to do it directly onto a pizza stone. It doesn't have to be neat. The more rustic the better!

Step 8: Now it's time for adding toppings of your choice. Cheese and tomato is always a staple in this house, especially with the kids.

Step 9: We used grated cheddar and sliced buffalo mozzarella for this pizza. You could try crumbled blue cheese or even feta if you prefer.

Step 10: Bake in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. Leave to cool for 5 minutes before cutting into slices.

WHAT TOPPINGS CAN I USE?


My kids usually opt for a mozzarella and tomato pizza. However, you could add as many toppings as you like.

A personal favourite of mine is ham and pineapple (I love it so much I've even developed a macaroni cheese recipe with ham and pineapple!).

For something a little bit different, how about this Brie and Blackberry Pizza from A Mummy Too? Not sure my kids would go for it, but I might give it a try when blackberry season arrives.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS


I usually make this scone pizza for my kids to share at lunch. They like it with some cucumber and carrot sticks on the side.

If you're serving this to adults, I'd make a green salad with a light lemony salad dressing.

The ingredients stated make 1 medium pizza. The recipe can easily be doubled if you would like to make 2 pizza's, or if you prefer, 4 mini ones.
