Ollie's Yummy Habanero Flavour Pizza

Ollie's Habanero Chilli Pizza


For the base:

300g strong bread flour,

1 tsp instant yeast (from a sachet or a tub),

1 tsp salt,

1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for drizzling

For the Pizza sauce:

100ml passata

1 tsp Goch Habanero Perfection Chilli Sauce (Hot!)

For the topping:

125g ball mozzarella, sliced

A handful grated goats cheese

Chopped pineapple

Sliced Ham

A handful of halved cherry tomatoes (optional)


To finish:

handful basil leaves (optional)


Make the base:

Put the flour into a large bowl, then stir in the yeast and salt. Make a well, pour in 200ml warm water and the olive oil and bring together with a wooden spoon until you have a soft, fairly wet dough.  Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 mins until smooth.

Cover with a tea towel and set aside. You can leave the dough to rise if you like, but it’s not essential for a thin crust.


Make the sauce:

Mix the passata and Goch Habanero Perfection Chilli sauce together, then season to taste. Leave to stand at room temperature while you get on with shaping the base.


Roll out the dough:

If you’ve let the dough rise, give it a quick knead, then split into two balls. On a floured surface, roll out the dough into large rounds, about 25cm across, using a rolling pin.

The dough needs to be very thin as it will rise in the oven.  Lift the rounds onto two floured baking sheets.


Top and bake:

Heat oven to 240C/fan 220C /gas 8. Put another baking sheet or an upturned baking tray in the oven on the top shelf. Smooth sauce over bases with the back of a spoon. Scatter with ham, pineapple, cheese (and tomatoes - optional), drizzle with olive oil and season. Put one pizza, still on its baking sheet, on top of the preheated sheet or tray. Bake for 8-10 mins until crisp.


Serve with a little more olive oil, and basil leaves if using.   Repeat step for remaining pizza.
