    • Total time: 1 hour 30 minutes 60 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 6


    • Pizza Base
    • 450g plain, unbleached white flour
    • 1 level tsp sugar
    • 1 level tsp bicarbonate of soda
    • 1 level tsp salt
    • 350ml buttermilk, plus a little extra
    • Tomato Fondue
    • 2 tsp olive oil
    • 1 onion, sliced
    • 1 clove garlic, crushed
    • 900g tomatoes (fresh, or drained, tinned ones)
    • salt, freshly ground pepper and sugar
    • 1 tbsp chopped thyme, parsley, mint, basil or marjoram
    • Toppings
    • 150g Cheddar, grated
    • 60g chorizo sausage, sliced
    • 3 large mushrooms, sliced


    1. Make the tomato fondue. Heat the oil in a wide pan over a gentle heat. Sweat the onion and garlic until completely soft (10-15 minutes).
    2. If using fresh tomatoes, core them, then cover with boiling water, leave for a minute, and drain. Peel and slice, and add to the onions. If using tinned, just roughly chop first. Season with salt, pepper and sugar. Add the herbs. Cook for 10-20 minutes more.
    3. Meanwhile, make the base. Preheat the oven to 230C/gas mark 8. Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl, make a well and pour in the 350ml buttermilk. Mix, adding more buttermilk if necessary. Turn onto a floured board, knead briefly then roll out to fit a swiss roll tin (25.5 x 38cm) or divide into 6 pieces.
    4. Spread 8 tbsp tomato fondue on the dough. Scatter over the toppings. Bake for 25 minutes. For small pizzas, roll out each piece of dough to a 15cm round. Add the toppings and bake for 8-10 minutes.
