No Proving Required – Scone Base Pizza – The Fast Way

Let’s be honest here. Often, after a busy day ferrying the kids around to their various activities/parties (sometimes, both!), meal times can get a bit rushed.


This scone base pizza was whipped up in a few minutes and only took 12 minutes to cook. The beauty of using self raising flour is that it doesn’t need proving. These were a big hit in our house this weekend!


Scone Pizza base:

8oz Self raising flour

2tbsp olive oil

150ml water


400g Tin Toms

1tsp mixed herbs

1tsp red wine vinegar

Toppings (the choice is yours – I used the following)

Grated cheese


2 black pitted olives

Start off by Pre heating your oven to 200•C, gas mark 6. Then start to make the base. Place the flour, oil and water into a bowl and mix into a good dough.

Turn the dough out onto a clean, lightly floured surface.

Sprinkle some flour on top of the dough and make into a ball. Divide into two.

If you’d like round bases, get the base of a cake tin, pop some baking paper top and then place one of the balls onto it.

Use a rolling pin to get nice, round bases.

Now it’s time to make the passata. Tip the tin toms, herbs and vinegar into a saucepan. Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer. If necessary, use a hand held blender to get a smooth sauce (I didn’t need to).

When the sauce is lovely and thick, remove from the heat. Leave to cool for a few minutes.

Now you are ready to decorate your pizza. Smear the sauce over the bases, leaving a nice edge.

On top of the passata, sprinkle your grated cheese.

Then place two round pre cut pepperoni slices onto each base (eyes). I then used the end of a clean bottle opener to make smaller round pepperoni pieces (for the nose and mouth). Place them onto the base.

Next up, I cut two black (pitted) olives in half and popped them on top of the eyes.

Once ready, pop into the preheated oven for 12-14 minutes.

Place onto individual plates, use some rocket for the hair and sliced Tomatoes for the hair.

We hope you enjoy making these – meal times don’t get any more fun than this! Did they eat the rocket, you might ask? Oh yes, they did!! Parent points, right there 👍🏻

  1. I tried this at the weekend. Albeit cheese and tomato.

    They were so easy to do. I haven’t been adventurous in the kitchen for a while and am usually a one pot wonder, so these were great!

    They were so tasty I almost forgot a photo! Not worth sharing of one square left! Will have to make more!


    1. Excellent! Thanks for letting us know – share your picture, we’d love to see the square left 👍🏻
      Glad you enjoyed the recipe and thanks for taking the time to visit our site. Carly X
