A family movie, the finalé of your favourite drama, a top sports match… Whatever you love to watch on the box, Saturday TV nights are crying out for sharing plates and indulging in a little bit of what you fancy. If you avoid takeaways and cook for yourself, it’s easy enough to factor in a lovely treat.


Strong White Flour (bread flour)

250 g


½ teaspoon(s)

Dried baking yeast

1 teaspoon(s)

Olive Oil

½ tablespoon(s)

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)


  1. Put the flour and salt in a bowl and make a well in the middle. Combine the yeast, olive oil and 175ml warm water in a jug and stir to dissolve the yeast. Pour the liquid into the well and mix to form a dough.
  2. Tip onto a lightly floured surface; knead for 2 3 minutes, until smooth. Shape into a ball and put in a large bowl that’s misted with calorie controlled cooking spray. Cover with clingfilm and leave to rise in a warm place for 45 minutes or until doubled in size.
  3. Tip the dough onto a lightly floured surface, then knock it back and divide into 3 equal parts. Shape each piece into a ball then roll out each ball into a thin pizza base.
  4. Transfer to baking sheets, ready for your tomato pizza sauce and toppings!
