I love pizzas made with home made dough and pizza sauce. I just love that wonderful aroma in the kitchen. Prosciutto is a favourite topping and with a few extras makes a fabulous pizza. I like to serve with a fresh rocket and spinach salad with baby roma tomatoes, red onion and balsamic dressing. Of course a good red wine makes this meal perfect!


  • Pizza dough

  • 200 mls water

  • 1 tabs olive oil

  • 1 teas salt

  • 2.5 cups bread flour

  • 1.75 teas dried yeast

  • a little olive oil for lightly greasing the pizza trays

  • Topping

  • 1 cup home made pizza sauce

  • 125 g shaved prosciutto, cut into strips

  • 300 grams mozzarella cheese (ball) sliced into thin rounds

  • 6 mushrooms

  • 2 cheeks of red capsicum thinly sliced

  • .5 cup fresh basil leaves torn into pieces

  • 2 tabs fresh continental parsley chopped roughly

  • salt

  • freshly ground black pepper

  • You will need two 30cm round pizza trays (or you can shape your rounds and bake on a flat baking tray)


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 200 C.

  • 2.

    Make the pizza dough in your breadmaker on the ‘dough setting’. This takes approx 50 mins. Lightly brush the pizza trays with a little olive oil and have ready.

  • 3.

    When ready, halve the dough to make two 30cm diameter pizzas. Roll dough on a floured surface into a round a little larger than the pizza trays.

  • 4.

    Place the dough on the greased pizza trays. You can fold the edges under if overhanging the tray. Don’t worry if it doesn’t look neat at this stage, because as it rises in the oven it will plump out. The unevenness gives it a rustic look!

  • 5.

    Spread the pizza sauce thinly over the dough. Sprinkle the prosciutto, the fresh basil, parsley, capsicum and mushrooms over the base. Lastly, place the mozzarella slices and season with salt and pepper.

  • 6.

    Bake pizzas in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 mins or until base is cooked and topping golden.


Slide your pizzas on to a large board to cut with a pizza cutter. Sprinkle the pizzas with some shredded fresh basil before serving.
