Pizza is a dish we all know and love, but this cheat’s version is breaking all the rules! You’ll only need one pan and one hob ring for this, so there’s no need to turn the oven on. Plus, it’s not only quicker than your average takeaway, it’s far cheaper and contains three of your five-a-day in just one portion.
TOTAL TIME: 10 MINUTES
COST PER PORTION: 80p*
250g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
1 red onion
½ a red pepper
½ x 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
50g mature Cheddar cheese
½ a butterhead or round lettuce
red wine vinegar
1. Place the flour in a bowl with a pinch of sea salt, and gradually pour in up to 150ml of cold water, using a fork to stir as you go so it comes together into a ball of dough. Knead for just 1 minute on a clean, flour-dusted surface and put aside.
2. Put a 30cm frying pan on a medium-high heat with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Peel and finely slice the onion and deseed and finely slice the pepper, adding to the pan as you go, then season with a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Place a lid on top and fry for 2 minutes, or until golden, tossing occasionally.
3. Meanwhile, roll out the dough into a round the size of the pan (just under ½cm thick).
