My mum doesn’t like bought pizzas, according to her they are too greasy and not very tasty. But she likes homemade pizzas so we had that regularly when I was a child. I prefered bought pizzas though because the dough was nicer. Until I found this recipe in one of her cookbooks that is, now I actually prefer homemade.

This recipe is from a great Swedish cookbook called Annas mat. I know have my own copy.

Homemade pizza, 2-3 portions


200 ml lukewarm water

2 tbsp milk

2 tbsp olive oil

pinch of salt

1 tsp honey

1 tsp dried yeast

500-600 ml plain flour

Pour the liquids into a bowl and mix them, then add the salt and the yeast, make sure the yeast dissolves. Then add about 500 ml flour and knead it in. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour. When the dough has let go of the edges of the bowl, is all in one piece and is still a bit sticky, sprinkle some flour on top, place a clean tea towel on top and let it rise for about 45 minutes or until it has doubled in size.

Then add a little bit more flour and knead it properly to make it elastic. Roll out to wanted size. You can either have one big slightly thicker pizza that covers a whole baking tray or two or more smaller (and thinner) ones. I made two with different toppings.

Tomato sauce:

I make it easy for myself here and mix 1 part ketchup with 1 part tomato paste and 1 part BBQ, chilli or reggae reggae sauce.

Topping I:


Tinned artichoke hearts

Pressed garlic

Buffalo mozzarella

Grated cheddar (or other cheese)


Topping II:


Marinated peppers

Pimiento olives

Buffalo mozzarella

Grated cheddar


Bake for about 8 minutes in 265 centigrade. Enjoy!
