Quick and Easy Scone Base Pizza


© 
This time last week there were 4 giggling girls in my house, as both Miss Ony and Miss Kahonie had a friend round for tea. I decided to make them a scone base pizza as they're so quick to make, especially using the food processor. As one of these friends is a notoriously fussy eater, I made a plain cheese and tomato pizza, as I know she's not a big fan of vegetables!

Serves 4

Scone base
  • 200g/8oz SR flour
  • 50g/2oz butter/spread
  • 50g/2oz grated cheese
  • 5-7 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp mustard powder
Toppings
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree/sun-dried tomato puree
  • ½ tsp mixed herbs
  • 50-100g/2-4 oz grated cheese
  • your choice of extras: finely chopped peppers/onion/mushrooms, sweetcorn, pineapple, olives, veggie bacon etc
Pre-heat the oven to 200C/Fan 190C/Gas 6
Rub the butter into the flour.
Add the cheese, baking powder and mustard and mix.
Slowly add just enough milk to make a soft but not sticky dough.
Roll out into a circle about 2cm thick, on a floured board, and place on a greased baking tray.
Top with the tomato puree. Sprinkle with herbs and add any extra toppings.
Finally top with the grated cheese.
Cook for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.

Serve with pasta and salad.

Suitable for freezing.

Alternatives: For a vegan scone base omit the cheese and milk. Use 75g/3oz of dairy-free spread and add water or dairy-free milk instead.
Top using vegan mozzarella-style cheese. Pin It

  2. Good idea Lisa. I will have to give it a go. I could make diddy ones for Cooper. We sometimes use english muffins to make pizza with.
