I'm not going to bore you with topping choices, basics are cheese and tomato purée from there its whatever's in the fridge.
This is the basic recipe and I normally freeze the majority
650g strong white flour (I ran out and put half wholemeal for this batch but feck it)
7g dry yeast
1tsp salt
1tsp dry mixed herbs
2 tbsp olice oil
2 tbsp milk
300ml water

1.Make the dough: mix the flour, yeast,dry mixed herbs and salt together in a large mixing bowl and stir in the olive oil and milk. Gradually add the water, mixing well to form a soft dough.

2.Turn the dough out on to a floured work surface and knead for about five minutes, until smooth and elastic. Transfer to a clean bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and leave to rise for about an hour, until doubled in size

3.When the dough has risen, knock it back, then knead again until smooth, roll into a ball and set aside for 30 minutes to 1 hour until risen again.

4.Divide the dough into six balls (I put 5 balls into the freezer but thats up to you!!) and roll each out onto a lightly floured work surface until 20cm/8in in diameter. (Defrost the frozen ones in the fridge over night in the fridge and then come back to this step)

5.Spread tomato purée over each pizza base and top with whatever you have hanging around, once made a baked bean pizza.

7.Bake the pizzas in the oven until the bases are crisp and golden-brown around the edges and any cheese on the topping has melted.
Mmmmmmm Looks lush. I like pizza but at the moment we just make gluten free socca bread and use it as a pizza base. We also don't generally buy tomato paste but we've got some sundried, so we just blend them into the base.

But that one looks lush... Mmmmm... Yeah... Image
Dipsy, you're going to come and live with us and make us pizza Image I've decided.
I would but I don't think Mark would let me... You know unless I made up a load, along with kebabs and curry for his once a week treat.

The rest of the time we're boring and healthy, promise! The price of meat has made us practically vegetarian, hence the black bean chilli...
Hmmm... Ever tried black bean pot? It was one of our staples for a while. Black beans and pumpkin/squash chunks in a thick molassesy sauce, baked in the oven... Mmmm. Haven't had it for ages, but in this weather I'm tempted Image

Don't be a tease!! share the recipe!!
I'll have to find it first Image haven't made it for ages so can't remember it and the recipe book may be over Grace's grandma's. I'm no black bean pot tease, I just didn't know if anyone would want it.
Natch! Recipe book at Grace's grandma's.
So as compensation, I'm posting this recipe for leek salad. No seriously, it's lush and doesn't just taste of raw leeks Image

1 medium leek
4 sticks celery
1 apple
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 heaped tbsp vegan mayo
Salt and pepper

Cut leek length ways and slice. Slice up celery. Peel and chop apple into small cubes. Mix up in a bowl with mayo and lemon juice. Salt and pepper to taste.

It came from a vegan cookbook, hence the vegan mayo. It also says you can add a cubed block of tofu, but I've never tried. We usually end up making our own mayo Image the book kindly has a recipe for that too.
Keeping all food under cover
is the first step towards ridding
the house of Aunts. Image

When you next have friends to dinner,
one cut up in a mixed salad would be
plenty for eight and a novel surprise for
one's guests.
Left over curry?

1. Make it into a pie.

2. Turn it into an oven proof dish and cover with a) mashed potato, sliced cheese and tomatoes or b) sliced potatoes, sliced cheese and tomatoes.
AND if you use 1/2 normal potatoes and 1/2 sweet potatoes, so much the better!

3. Make it into pasties.
