Christmas Tree Pizza

No excuse needed for making Pizza for dinner, but a Christmas Tree shaped Pizza is guarnteed to give you extra Mum points. To make these pizza’s you could cheat and use a ready made pizza base but we prefer to make our own. Here is the recipe for traditional dough base.

What you need:

  • 3 cups of strong plain flour
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon of fast action dried yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and cover. Leave for half an hour to give the yeast a chance to work.

After this time, divide the dough into 4 pieces and flatten with your hands. I then hand cut christmas tree shapes and put onto a greased baking tray.

Using a jar of pizza sauce (can be found in most supermarkets) or use tomato puree mixed with some dried oregano.

Then comes the fun bit of adding the toppings of your choice. I used a selction of peppers, sausage, chicken, salami, tomatoes and cheese. I let both of my kids decide what they wanted on their pizza. Put in the oven on gas mark 6 for approximately 20 minutes and they had them for dinner.
