Baking Through The Book, Love Lies & Lemon Pies

Baking through the Book: Scone Pizza

It’s the Great British Bake Off quarter finals tonight, and I am beyond excited! And in case you were looking for something quick and yummy to munch for your dinner while watching, today’s recipe is absolutely perfect.

Scone pizza was, I think, one of the very first things I ever learned to bake for myself. It’s delicious, endlessly versatile and takes much less time than traditional yeasted pizza doughs. In fact, my five year old daughter made most of this by herself. Now she’s learned to crack eggs, she is unstoppable!

Tip the dough out onto a floured surface and shape into a round about 25cm across (or whatever other shape you like – rectangles work well, too)

Place on an oiled non-stick baking tray or pizza stone, then press out again using your hands into a circle (or rectangle) to form your pizza base.
