If there’s one comfort food that appeals to families and guests, it’s pizza. And why not? It’s a meal you can have at any time of the day, and can feed many at one go. There are different varieties to choose from, and you can add whatever ingredients you like. Plus, it’s easy to make, and you can even do it from scratch.

This recipe by executive chef of multiconcept eatery SPRMRKT, and partner chef of Bosch, Joseph Yeo, needs only a couple of ingredients.

Most of them may already be in your kitchen! Get the kids and your friends to help put them together for a fun and flavourful feast this June holiday.

Method: For the dough Combine olive oil, water, salt, sugar and dry yeast. Mix well till salt and sugar are dissolved.

Sieve flour into a mixer bowl. Use the dough hook attachment on your kitchen mixer and start mixing at a low speed.

Gradually add the liquid mixture to flour until it forms a dough. Then increase to full speed and beat for 20 seconds.

Divide the dough equally into portions of about 210g each.

Mould them into rounded buns, rest them on a tray, and cover with a damp cloth.

For the tomato sauce Blend the tomatoes till they turn into a smooth and liquid-like consistency.

Add the oregano, onion, basil and garlic. Pulse-blend to combine.

Add sugar, salt and  pepper to taste.

To make the pizza Pre-heat the oven to 240 deg C using the top-bottom heat mode.

Flatten one piece of dough into a round shape with your palm.

Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough evenly and flatten it further. Transfer the rolled dough onto a baking tray.

Spread the tomato sauce on the dough, and add mushrooms, chicken and mozzarella.

Bake it on the bottom rack for about 8 minutes to form a crust.

Shift it to a higher rack and bake for another 4 minutes to allow for better top browning.

1 Cut away the ends of French beans, and into shorter pieces.

2 In a pot of boiling water, add salt and ½ tsp oil. Blanch French beans for 1 minute. Set aside. (Do not cover the pot while cooking as this will keep the beans green.).

3 In another pan, dry-fry sesame seeds on low heat until fragrant.

Set aside.

4 Using the same pan, heat 1 tsp oil.

Add garlic and fry on low heat until golden brown.

5 Turn off the heat, and add light soya sauce, black vinegar and sugar.

Toss in chilli, if you want. Stir the mixture quickly and evenly. Drizzle over French beans.

6 Top with sesame seeds.

Serve hot with rice.
