Pizza bases

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Pizza bases

Good morning all.

I wonder if anyone can recommend any ready made pizza bases?

I know it's a poor excuse for making my own, but ideal when I am working for a nice quick meal to prepare when I get home on sunday evening.

Thanks everyone.

Doesn't answer your question, Z, but why not leave the dough covered all day, roll out a bit when you get home and add the toppings.

The ready made ones I've come across are all awful, heavy and dry.

For a quick pizza how about making a scone base (it takes minutes). Delia's frying pan pizza is an example.

Sainsbuys do a pizza set, consisting of a ready rolled pizza base(I normally roll it out a bit thinner) and a jar of tomato sauce. You just need to add the toppings of your choice. It's near the chilled pastry section.
It's very good and just right when you want a quick lunch.

Also tortilla wraps are a good substitute too, again just add your favourite toppings.

I've never had very good results with ready mode pizza bases. When I used to make my own pizzas a lot I used to use "Granny Smith's" bread mix in a packet. (Don't know if they make it any more but there are other bread mixes).

It's very quick and you don't need to faff about with bread makers. Just pop it into a bowl or the processor or mixer and whizz together, shape and leave to rise while assembling your other ingredients. As it only needs to rise a little it only takes 10 minutes plus "decorating" and baking.

I used to have Sainsbug's jars of antipasto in for quick pizza toppings.

Its true, its a ready made thing they don't seem to have cracked yet, most are dreadful.

Sainsburys used to do brilliant ones years ago called "boboli" and they were excellent, but discontinued years ago in the UK (Its an american product and Sainsburys had the UK rights)

Personally, Id do a batch of home made ones, wrap individually and freeze, they you can just take out, leave for 15 minutes and then top and bake.

No I dont think its a poor excuse at all Z - sometimes you just dont want to faff about or dont have time. I think its a bit trial and error on bought ones - although surprisingly I have to have gluten free ones and they work fine!

Just another idea - my kids love "french bread" pizzas. I buy a baguette, cut in in half and top with sauce and toppings, cook it in the oven and it goes lovely and crispy. A good quick alternative.

Oh GQ I do that too! When you want a really quick pizza use a baguette! Can't say I'm making it for the kids.......haven't got any!!!! OH likes them though. Good for using up "past their best" bits too.
