A Very Fast Soda Bread Pizza!

Summer time, gardens, children, friends, Barbeques & Pizza are some the main ingredients for a great day with the family! Pizza is so easy to make but some people are put off by the thought of getting the yeast, proving the dough and all that – so here is an alternative bread dough that you can make in five minutes and works just as well!
It is based on a traditional Irish white Scone Bread mix with a wee twist and it works perfectly every time. 
My ingredients:
For the dough -makes two 10” pizzas
800g plain white flour
½ tspn baking powder
A few twists of ground black pepper
A few twists of ground sea salt
½ tspn mixed Herbs
½ tspn finely chopped (or granulated) garlic
2 tbls olive or rapeseed oil
125ml cold water
You can buy Pizza trays cheap in any hardware or discount shop.

My Method:
Heat your oven to 170ºC.
  1. Put all the dry ingredients into a large bowl and stir with a whisk to mix well. Add the oil and stir.
  2. Now add ¾ of the cold water and with your hand pull the mix into a dough. Add a little more water if you need to. When the dough comes together in the centre dust it with a little flour and turn it out onto your table.
  3. Cut in half and roll out into two thin circles the size of your pizza trays. Place in the oven and bake for 5 minutes. Remove and leave aside.
 For the topping
1x jar of Tomato Sauce for Bolognaise
Thinly sliced peppers, Salami, onions, olives, bacon or any topping of your choice
Chopped fresh herbs
150g Mozzarella cheese sliced
Grated Irish Cheddar or Goats cheese of your choice
My Method:
Spread the sauce on the half-baked pizza base. Place your sliced meats, vegetables & herbs on top and finish with the mozzarella and grated cheese. Pop into the oven for another 8 minutes and serve. It couldn’t be quicker than that!

    why is there no soda written in the ingrédients when it is called a soda bread recipi?

  2. Baking Soda is sodium bicarbonate which when added to buttermilk (which is acidic) produces bubbles of carbon dioxide that expand causing bread to rise when baked. Baking Powder contains sodium bicarbonate but also includes Cream of Tartar, as an acidifier, so that the water (or milk) reacts with this causing the bread to rise when heated. You can use Baking Soda & Buttermilk instead of the baking powder and water if you wish. Zack.
