Everyone seems to have their own favourite version of pizza dough that they prepare themselves or simply buy ready-made at the shop. If you don’t have your own recipe and are feeling rather daring you can try making your own dough. I kept this recipe simple but don’t be afraid to mess with the ratios of the cheeses!

    Sometimes I only eat pizza for the crust, other times it’s a vehicle for toppings. This seems the perfect pizza to satisfy the latter. Do you make your own dough or buy it?

    Oh, we are definitely on the smae wavelength – you will laught when you see my entry into the vintage cheddar draw :) This is one of my all-time favourite pizzas – I have been known to beg pizzerias in South Africa to make this even if it’s not on the menu… Cheesy perfection! Gnocchi quattro formaggi ain’t half bad either…
