Taverna margherita pizza

A true classic for both children and adults and an easy way to make an evening meal that everyone likes. Taverna Finest gives a lovely salty taste to the sweet tomato sauce, and you can tweak the pizza yourself with ham, chicken or other favourite toppings.


Day before

Dissolve the yeast in water, add a quarter tsp. of salt and olive oil and then stir in the flour.

Knead the dough for 5 to 10 minutes until it is firm and holds its shape.

It will still look moist.

Place cling film over the bowl, put a plate or something similar on top and leave to rise in a cool place overnight.

On the day

Heat the oven to 250°C (fan-assisted) and place a baking sheet inside the oven.

Roll the dough out on a piece of greaseproof paper.

Mash the cheese together with the passata/tinned tomatoes and olive oil and spread over the dough.

Finely slice the cherry tomatoes and spread across the pizza.

Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven, garnish with basil and serve immediately.
