We have been so busy with Cams first birthday just gone and Mr Knight getting ready to go away for 8days on a Outward bound course in two more sleeps,tear! And then Cam and I going to the South Island in a week for a little four day adventure visiting friends. Then on top of all our packing ect we have ALL been/are sick! even tho we are yet to go on we trip itl be nice to get home and settled back to day to day-ness. So i thought id better do a post its been too long and a recipe was the only thing my poor brain can deal with at tho mo,but hope you enjoy it,its an old favourite in our home!! xx

* makes two pizza doughs to cover two whole oven trays,i find it hard to knead when halving the recipe so i just freeze half.
Simple pizza dough

6 cups of flour
pinch of salt
2 cups of warm milk T yeast

Warm milk and sprinkle yeast on top,leave to stand for 5minutes
Mix flour and salt,add milk mix when ready
Stir and knead together,sprinkling flour as needed,
Oil a bowl,place dough in,cover& place in airing cupboard or warm place to double in size,or near.

oooo toppings:
so oil your oven tray and roll pizza dough out to cover the whole tray add about three cloves of crushed garlic tomato paste sprinkle with cheese, and i topped mine with: slices of silverbeet or spinach cover with cheese to stick it down slices of salami,ham or bacon cherry tomato's are delish parmi cheese feta cheese and cubes of cooked pumpkin
(may not sound that great but pumpkin actually works really well,cut into small squares and boil till just soft,drain,cool and place on pizza)
add pepper

preheat oven to 200c bake
and cook for 40mins
just test dough to see if cooked,cool for a we while before cutting.
home made pizza what a treat!!!!!!

* this recipe i used 4 cups of wholemeal flour and 2 white.
