This pesto and three cheese pizza is pretty fuss free and could easily be doubled to serve a bigger crowd with the only waiting time for the dough to rise.



3/4 cup lukewarm water
1 teaspoon instant active yeast
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 teaspoon salt
1 garlic clove, crushed finely sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup plain pesto
1 teaspoon chili flakes
2 tablespoons goats or soft cheese
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup burrata mozzarella, torn


Place the lukewarm water, sugar and yeast in a bowl and allow to dissolve for 5 minutes until bubbling.

Add the flour, salt  and garlic in a bowl and mix until well combined and the dough has formed.

Knead on a floured surface until smooth.

Place the olive oil in a bowl and rest the dough for 30 minutes or until risen and doubled in size.

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350F.

Spread the pesto on the pizza base, then sprinkle the grated cheese evenly, crumble the goats cheese and lastly sprinkle the chili flakes over the top and place in the oven for 12 minutes or until golden.

Slice and serve hot.
