That Greek pizza 

That Greek pizza 

I’m FOREVER on a quest to find alternates to certain foods, without becoming obsessive! I always say that I’m a chef “first” – because, besides the training, this is my absolute passion. 

So sitting with recipes books and trying to find time to go through COUNTLESS blogs, sites and instagrams, I sometimes see something, it gets stored in the depths of my brain and then like a lightbulb, it goes off, and keeps blinding me with its flashes. 

I saw this on a friends Facebook, sometime ago, I think she posted the link to a Pinterest site and as you probably aware, the ball just keeps rolling… 

I’m not even creating a recipe tab for this, it’s two ingredients – it’s the simpliest recipe that I have EVER posted. 

1 1/2 cups of self raising flour

1 cup of Greek yogurt (non-fat) 

Pinch of Salt and pepper 

MIX 

Leave to rest for 20 minutes and then shape to a pizza base. Pre-bake without toppings at 200C for 10-15 minutes, until slightly golden. 

Top…pop back into the oven until the cheese melts. 

EAT 

   
     

   

  

  
How’s that for quick, easy, simple, fast, “look at me impress my friends” moments!!!

The pizza situation

I call it “THE SITUATION” because no matter who you are, or what you do, everyone loves pizza. If you don’t, you actually don’t have a soul. 😉 

My pizza base recipe 

600g of flour

A pinch of salt 

2 tablespoons of olive oil 

1.5 teaspoons of yeast 

500ml of water (slightly warm)



Mix yeast into water to activate 

Add the olive oil to your water and mix, add to the flour and salt….combine 

You are not looking for a bread dough “all of it comes together” ball, it will be soft and almost still runny. LEAVE IT to rise. It will almost quadruple in volume. 



See the bubbles, be the bubbles 👍

Plop out onto a well floured surface 



All you doing here is gathering the dough back onto it self 

Don’t overwork it 

Place your pizza base, be it rectangle or round onto a floured oven tray or pizza stone. Bake in a oven that’s been preheated to 200 degrees – until it’s almost a tan colour (you effectively bake the base until it’s done, but without burning it) 



Tomato base 

Add toppings of your choice 



Pop back into oven until it’s all yummy and melted!

Cauliflower power! 

Cauliflower power! 

Soooooo, we on this trend of being healthy! Eating less processed carbohydrates, or just less processed items in general! 

I love the cauliflower pizza base idea! It packs an amazing flavour punch and is obviously much healthier (just don’t over dose with cheese) 

Recipe below! 

Ingredients for the base:

1 cup of cauliflower (finely chopped in a food processor or grated) 

1/2 cup of low fat grated mozzarella 

5 tablespoons of almond flour 

3 tablespoons of grated Parmesan 

1 teaspoon of chopped mixed herbs (any that you prefer) I use oregano 

1 pinch of salt and pepper 

1 egg beaten 

Toppings 

GO WILD! 

Set your oven to 200 degrees celcius 

Mix the base ingredients in a bowl, shape into a circle or spread out onto a prepared baking tray and pop into the oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown! 

I use a basic tomato sauce for the base 

Top with your choosen ingredients and pop back into the oven to melt 

I don’t pile the pizza with toppings, bearing in mind that the cauliflower doesn’t “harden” like a normal pizza base! 

So that’s that! 

Be creative and enjoy the process! 

It’s ridiculously yummy! 🍴❤️
