Dairy free pizza

This was inspired by a trip to Pizza express. We always order the bolognese for T, but I thought that he can't miss out on pizza! Making pizza dough is surprisingly easy, you just need a bit of time on your side. 


250g Bread flour
1 packet dried yeast (7g)
2 tbsp olive oil
150mls lukewarm water
Jar of sundried tomato paste (check that it is dairy free). 
Whatever toppings you can think of! (see below for some ideas)

  • Measure out the flour into a large bowl (or use your work surface in the kitchen)
  • Make a well in the flour
  • In a separate bowl, mix the water, yeast and olive oil and leave for a few minutes until the yeast starts to ferment. 
  • Pour the yeast mixture into the well of the flour. 
  • Initially combine with a spoon, and then turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 5-10minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic

Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic

  • Put the dough back into a clean bowl and cover with a damp cloth. Leave in a warm place for 45mins-1 hour. 
  • Once the dough is doubled, turn it back out onto a floured surface and knock the air out. 
  • Cut the dough into 4 equally sized pieces and roll these out with a rolling pin. 
  • Place the pizza bases onto a lightly oiled baking paper and top with your desired toppings. 

This recipe made enough for four small pizzas. 

Ideas for toppings:

Ham and mushroom
Dairy free cheese (if your baby can tolerate soya)
Chicken and sweetcorn
Tomato and basil
Tuna and green pepper

Ham, mushroom and basil pizzas. 

  • Bake in the oven for 15mins at 200C until the dough has cooked through. 
  • Serve with a tomato salad and enjoy!

PS - you can always make some for yourself too!
