    Also what pizza has only 300 calories?

    Edit: Oh, it's per 100g.

    By eating it you actually burn more calories than you consume.

    Looks like it's low salt, low fat, and normal amount of vitamins but still high carb and high calorie.

    You don't think there's a single vitamin in things like tomato sauce or cheese?

    is it normal for a pizza to have any vitamins?!

    and i don't call 300 calories "high"... espeically for a main meal. in fact, i'd call that low, considering you are supposed to eat 2500 calories/day.
    Try harder. Of course a normal pizza has vitamins.

    A full one of those pizzas has 560 calories according to their website. All they've done is take a normal pizza, give it an extra thin base and next to no cheese, and trumpet the combination of tomato sauce and carbs as some kind of wonder fusion. All the seaweed in the base does is lower salt content.

    300 calories per 100g is fairly high, half a kilo of dinner would be 1500 calories. I eat more than 500g of an evening but then I probably eat a fair chunk over 2500 per day too.

    Ended up getting a recommendation from a friend and went with this

    300g strong white bread flour
    7g fast action yeast
    5g salt
    230ml ish cold water
    Drizzle of olive oil

    Gonna let it prove for another hour and I should easily get a couple of large pizzas out of that. Might attempt a stuffed crust if i'm feeling fancy aswell. Dough is looking pretty good so far and looks to be a decent size. Hopefully it'll turn out alright for a first effort.

    This thread has major potential if we share the recipe's, post pictures and make this even better than that burger thread.

    I've always wanted to find the perfect recipe for a homemade pizza that doesn't require a pizza oven or anything like that.

    Nice :) Is that a pizza stone?

    Out of interest, what's the cost of ingredients that went into that?

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    @mal Yup. Got the pizza stone a Christmas or two ago I think and i've only really just started to use it.

    As for cost i'm not sure really. Certainly much less than your average takeaway I would think. Mozzarella was a quid, cheap can of peeled tomatoes, leftover chorizo, bit of a sliced ham and some herbs? Very cheap.

    Has any brave soul ever attempted a homemade Chicago style pizza? Those deep dish ones. They look lovely.

    I quite like the naan bread for a base homemade pizza option. Just requires a tin of tomatoes add whatever herbs you like, Salt, pepper reduce that for half hour. Smear onto naan add mozzarella whack in oven on high temp (approx 210) cook for about ten minutes (or until cheese starts to brown) and voila.

    I've been putting the Bank Holiday to good use by doing some research into the latest trends in home authentic pizza production.

    I dabbled with a pizza stone on the BBQ last summer, and it had potential, but is a bit of a faff. I got a new book, which reckons the best way in the kitchen is to start them off on a cast iron pan on the hob, then move it into a toasty oven.

    But on doing research, I came across the Baking Steel - works like a pizza stone in the oven, but with much better heat transfer - so you get the quick cook on the base you are after. And reading around, it seems to work.

    With shipping from the USA, it's a bit pricey - but reading forums, other tight arses like myself have figured out it's basically a piece of sheet steel. There are a few suppliers on eBay, but I've emailed some local metal fabricators to get a quote. Will update when I get things up and running!

    @BillMurray I know this is about 10 months late but that pizza looks fucking delicious. Did you follow an exact recipe or just make it up as you went?

    I was intrigued by the ad saying they were voted better than Dominos. Not that I think Dominoes is particularly good, though they aren't bad, so I buckled and bought the only Chicago Stuffed Crust pizza I'll ever buy. It had sauce in the crust, which seemed a bit crap given the standard stuffed crust is filled with cheese.

    It was alright. Very sweet dough, though. Not as good as delivery, but a lot cheaper, and not as bad as the cheapness would suggest. But still all kinds of wrong.

    If I'm buying pizza from a shop then I'd rather a Romano crust Pizza Express effort.

    Sometimes I make pizza dough at home but it's rarely worth the effort when you can just slice a ciabatta in half and make awesome pizzas that way :)

    After my disastrous attempt at a meat feast I'll stick ordering from dominos.

    My kids prefer Dominos to 2 really good pizza places near us, one with an amazing wood-fired oven - it's a big clay dome with some burning logs inside. I think it's down to marketing and advertising.

    Just wait till I'm whipping them off my bit of steel plate :)
    I've also purchased a pizza peel (the long-handled spade thing).
