A no yeast pizza recipe –  usually keep yeast in my baking cupboard, but occasionally I forget to stock up! This was one of those occasions, so I improvised with self raising flour.

It tasted really good and I don’t think it came out too badly for a first try.

You will need
90 ml Warm Water
1 tsp Salt
Toppings Of Your Choice
Pizza Sauce (store bought or make your own)
Grated cheese
45 ml Olive Oil
225 g Self-Raising Flour

Method

Preheat the oven to 220ºC

To make the crust: Combine the salt, flour, oil, and water, mix well.

Lightly flour your work surface and roll out the dough.

If you like a thick crust, you can roll the edges of the dough over or leave flat for a thin crust.

For a stuffed crust, add cheese as you roll the edges.

Cover the pizza with sauce, cheese and your choice of toppings.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown, and the edges and bottom of the crust are golden brown.

Take the pizza out of the oven and allow to cool.

Sprinkle lightly with Pizza Seasoning or dried Italian herbs to serve – optional.

NB. I have also submitted a similar article at Cut Out + Keep.

I love making these cheesy baked enchiladas and Mexican style food in general (Ryan makes the best bean burritos! ).

This quick and easy recipe will serve 4, but you can also have some as left overs. I have taken some to work with me in the past.

Side note: I need prettier or non black baking dishes…

You will need

  • 8 Soft Corn Tortillas
  • 500g tender chicken breast
  • 150g grated cheese
  • Red enchilada sauce (store bought or make your own: I recommend Gimme some Oven’s sauce recipe)

Method
Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C for fan assisted ovens), gas mark 4.

Slice the chicken into thin strips.

Pan fry the chicken in oil on a medium heat until it’s cooked right through.

In a bowl, stir up the Enchilada S Mix with both parts of the Tomato Sauce sachet and 150ml hot water.

Pour half of the mixture over the chicken, add half the grated cheese.

Microwave the Soft Corn Tortillas on full power for 35-40 seconds or heat in the oven following the pack instructions.

Spoon the filling onto the middle of the warm tortillas, wrap them up and lay them folded side down onto a lightly greased baking dish / tray.

Pour over the remaining sauce and sprinkle on the rest of the grated cheese.

Bake in a pre-heated oven for 10 minutes, until the cheese is golden and bubbling.

May 7th was my birthday and I decided to book a few days off work to celebrate.

Wednesday 6th May

I was surprised by Ryan by a mini birthday celebration, my sister also came over as they both had work on my actual birthday.

There were presents and a mini cake complete with sparkler and candles… I swear Ryan made a mistake with my age through. 😉

Thursday – Sclub7!

Last year mum, Kelly and I went to see McBusted on my birthday. This year it was Sclub7! My inner 90s / 00s child is very happy!

Mum and I did a bit of shopping beforehand, I didn’t find much I wanted except a nearly complete set of the new range of Buffy figures – all except Spike. Very happy! 😀

The concert was amazing, they played a great mix of songs and each band member did a solo preformance. One of the highlights was an acoustic version of Reach with Paul Cattermole.

Not sure how we’ll top this next year.
