This is an easy-peasy recipe for a Scone-Based Wholemeal Pizza. Funnily enough I haven’t eaten a scone based pizza since I was a child myself (they seemed to be all the rage in the 80s!) but have been eager to give one a whirl for ages now. Mainly as they’re so easy and quick to put together with no need for kneading or rising. Results were pretty good though admittedly incomparable to a thin crust homemade bread dough.

But very tasty nevertheless, and my kids happily wolfed it down for their tea roasted roots and all!. The perfect instant and healthy pizza if you ask me, and one I shall definitely be baking again.

Top with your kids’ favourite topping and a little cheese (Mozzarella, Cheddar, Goats or Feta all work brilliantly on pizza). I try to veg things up as much as possible with pizza and it’s amazing what you can get away with under a fine layer of cheese.

The Good Stuff:

Wholemeal Flour, Any Veggies you choose to add

Great For:

Great for Toddlers and Young Children, Bigger Kids, Family Dinners, Mid-Week Suppers, Vegetarians, Quick Homemade Pizza


Serves a Family of Four
Top with your kid’s favourite toppings – because it’s ‘pizza’ you can usually get away with plenty of sneaky (finely cut) veggies.

Special Equipment:

A baking tray, rolling-pin

Quick & Easy Scone Based Wholemeal Pizza

Ingredients Prep Time:10 mins, Cook Time: 20 mins, Total Time: 30 mins

Makes One Large Pizza:

125g Wholemeal Self-Raising Flour

100g of White Self-Raising Flour, plus a little extra for rolling

a teaspoon of Baking Powder

a pinch of Salt and Pepper

30g of Butter

1 Egg, lightly beaten

a little Milk

a heaped dessert spoon of Tomato puree, plus 2 dessert spoons of water

100g of sliced Mozzarella OR 75g of cheddar/goats cheese/feta

PLUS your chosen topping ingredients – roasted roots, ham, tomatoes, sweetcorn, pineapple or peppers always seem to go down well my lot!

1) Pre-heat your oven to 200ºC.

2) Place the flours, baking powder, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl and combine together. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

3) Add the egg and using your hands try to get the mixture to come together. You may need to add a little milk, keep adding until the mixture comes together in one piece.

4) Turn out the dough onto a work top or large board, shape into a ball and carefully roll out with a rolling-pin until you have your desired pizza size and thickness (as thin as possible is best, but harder to do with scone dough!).

5) Combine the tomato puree with the water and spread over the pizza base.

6) Scatter over your other chosen ingredients and finish with a layer of cheese.

7) Place in the oven for 20 minutes. The pizza’s ready when the cheese is golden and bubbling.
