Liquid pizza (yep, you’ve read that right!) – with or without a Thermomix

Sounds crazy? It’s actually is a very easy and fun way to make a pizza.

Simply make the batter, pour it into a baking tray, add the toppings you wish, cook in the oven and tah-dah.

See our verdict below the recipe.

Serves 4

Active time: 10 minutes – Total time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

For the base:

  • 1 egg
  • 40g olive oil
  • 300g pizza flour
  • 300ml warm water
  • 15g fresh yeast
  • 1 packet of dried yeast
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Tomato sauce – this is the one I use

Toppings of your choice

  • Ham, cheese, olives, mushrooms, pepperonis, peppers, eggs, bacon, grated cheese etc

Let’s go…

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. The size of the baking tray will depend largely on how thick or thin you like your pizza.
  2. Mix all the base ingredients in the TM bowl for 30 seconds / speed 4.
  3. Pour in the baking tray.
  4. Sprinkle your tomato sauce and toppings of your choice.
  5. Bake for 35 minutes in the oven.

The results: despite 45 minutes in the oven, it never really cooked through which is a shame as the taste was good.

I think the fact that I made it but it went in the oven a good 45 minutes later, which gave the dough time to double in size, really didn’t help. I might try again with less dough and certainly no ‘resting’ time.
