Nothing beats a classic pizza! This is a dish that everyone will love.

Serves: 2-3

Total time (prep and cooking): 40 minutes



  • 300g strong white flour, plus extra for kneading
  • 1 tsp fast-action dried yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 200ml warm water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 300g Hereford Beef mince
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 85g passata
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 150g Mozzarella cheese, torn
  • Salt and pepper


  • For the base: mix together the flour, yeast and salt in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the water and oil. Mix to a soft, fairly wet dough.
  • Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes until smooth. Put into a lightly greased bowl, cover with a tea towel and leave to rise for about 1 hour, until doubled in size.
  • Heat the oven to 200°C (180° fan) 400°F gas 6. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
  • Quickly knead the dough and roll out into a large round about 25cm in diameter. Place on the baking tray.
  • For the topping: heat half the olive oil in a frying pan.
  • Fry the mince with the garlic in olive oil over a high heat for 5 minutes until browned.
  • Brush the dough with the remaining olive oil and spread the passata on top. Sprinkle with oregano.
  • Place the beef mixture, mozzarella and tomatoes on top and season with salt and pepper.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes until the base is cooked and the tomatoes are tender.
