I followed my usual weekly cheats dough recipe but added lots and lots of butter 😳 eeekkk… So bad but it was just so crumbly and yum.

190g self raising
3.5g yeast
110ml water
Pinch of salt and sugar
2 tbls of butter

Combine, kneed and pop in a bowl.
Coat with olive oil
Cover with cling film
Leave to sit for an hour
Remove from bowl
Roll out again and spread a layer of soy butter across the surface
Roll as you would sushi and tuck into a dough ball
Into the fridge now for an hour
Remove and roll out again
Lay into a cake tin and get filling!

The nicest pizza I have made to date. Even if I do say so every week. Yes it’s slightly more time consuming and calorific but worth every extra second and calorie. Joy!
