Pepperoni and Jalapeño Pizza

A tasty homemade pizza with pepperoni and jalapeño!
Serves: 2 Preparation Time: 1 hour Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Pepperoni pizza


  • 400g Strong Bread Flour
  • 1 7g pack of yeast
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 350-400ml of warm water
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 300g Mozarella cheese grated
  • 1 Large red onion thinly sliced
  • 2-3 Jalepenos thinly sliced
  • 400g Pasta sauce/passata (homemade see recipe)
  1. Place flour, salt, sugar and yeast into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Pour in the olive oil (this is optional, but gives a lovely chewy crust)
  3. Very slowly pour in the warm water and mix with a Hand Mixer, or your hand, until the mixture forms a ball.
  4. Knead in the bowl for a few minutes with one hand, holding the bowl with the other, or use the Hand Mixer with Dough Hooks.
  5. When a smooth texture is formed, leave the dough in the bowl and cover with a damp tea towel or cling film and allow it to double in size.
  6. Punch down the risen dough to release air bubbles and then roll out (or press out with fingertips) on two pizza stones or a large baking sheet.
  7. Allow the dough to rise again for approximately 15-20 minutes (use this time to prep your toppings)
  8. Thinly slice the red onion, jalepenos and grate the cheese.
  9. Lightly cover the base with a little of the cheese first, this gives the crust a crispy texture.
  10. Spoon on the passata or our roasted pepper sauce and top with the sliced onion rings and jalepenos.
  11. Cover with the remaining cheese.
  12. Bake at 180-200C for 10-15 minutes.

Top Tips...

  • Makes 2 x 10' thin crust pizzas

Try adding mixed dried herbs or chopped sundried tomatoes to the dough for a twist on the classic base.

Pizzas don't have to be round, so why not try making a large square base and allocate each quarter for different toppings.

Coate the base with a thin layer of cheese before the sauce, this makes the base crispy.

Try using a cheese sauce as a base instead of tomato for an indulgent pizza.

No yeast pizza, use plain flour, baking powder and griddle as the flatbread recipe.

Baking times. 220/200fan for 10-15 minutes. Always a fast high bake for pizzas.

Tips for a crispy bottom.....Brush pizza stone with a little olive oil before placing on dough.

For a Non soggy crispy pizza....Sprinkle a little grated cheddar cheese on top of the base before sauce and toppings. Stops the base from becoming soggy.
