Easy Home Bake Fresh Pizza Dough 500G, half price £1 at Tesco

32
Found 12th Aug 2013
Bought this to try as only £1! Sometimes I make my own dough, which can be time consuming, sometimes I get ready made pizza. This is a nice compromise if you want to control pizza's thickness and toppings. I reckon 500gr should make 3-4 pizzas and everyone can have own topping.

For base: passata or olive oil with a bit of rosemary.

Also great to do with kids and a decent healthy meal without being overloaded with loads of cheese or pepperoni.

Turn up the oven to as high as it will go or use a BBQ, 3-10 mins and its done (depending on the thickness and temperature).

Offer ends 27th August 2013.

Soya flour, dextrose and emulsifier - no thank you! Should only need flour, yeast, olive oil and salt and takes very little time to make your own. Suppose it deserves heat for the price though.

I buy a ciabatta mix for pizza bases its only 80p, and doesn't take much mixing, it's 500g before you add water.

All natural ingredients so what's your problem? Hate these self proclaimed puritans

Soya flour is just ground up soya bean - perfectly healthy and nutritious. Dextrose is glucose - presumably there as an energy source for the yeast. The emulsifiers are there to stabilise the mix of different ingredients - nothing harmful.

Do you actually have a logical or rational reason for moaning about them?

You can get a finest pizza for only a few quid this is just time consuming...

This looks good especially for busy mums. Tesco also had packet pizza base mix for 65p last week which was very good. Used it to make mini baps for a mini burger recipe in the new Ellas kitchen cookbook. Heat added.

very sticky dough, too elastic to roll out into a base and has a weird generic alcohol taste and vodka aftertaste.

wouldn't recommend. Make your own!

also consider using pizza base alternatives like ready made Flatbreads, even naans and pittas!

I always make my own but would consider having this as a standby. Good price too so thanks OP for posting. (_;)

Out of the packet and needed to knock the fermentation back it hardens up. The alcohol taste is what happens when yeast ferments but I didn't get that from mine. It was delicious

From The Ecologist in an article about the crap that's put in our wholemeal bread...

"Soya flour: Increases protein content. The manufacturers of Hovis say there are no GM ingredients in their products. Nevertheless soya is a cheap and overused form of protein in modern baked goods. It is also an estrogen mimic that can disrupt hormone levels in men and women. Excess consumption of soya isoflavones (plant estrogen) is also implicated in thyroid and immune system suppression, increased risk of estrogen dependent cancers, infertility and growth problems. It can interfere with absorption of important nutrients."

There is absolutely no excuse for padding a product with Soya other than profit, seems a perfectly logical and rational reason to object. Far too many people are happy to accept any old crap in their food, which is exactly why we've had the recent meat contamination issues.

Because they're absolutely unnecessary in pizza dough. So quick and easy to make without them. For example, soya flour is there to cheaply bulk out the product. Don't our bodies deserve better than this?

irony much

Great deal for the product.

I usually mix the flour and yeast, olive oil and warm water in the well, let the dough ball rise for 1.5 hours and 10 minutes kneading. Comes out lovely. Not time consuming at all - just do something else while it rises

Soya flour is actually healthy

very expensive way of making a pizza and i agree with the others in that the ingredients are full of junk.

I always make my own and this is my favourite dough mix which makes 2 large thin crust bases

350g strong white plain flour
7g easy blend yeast sachet
2 tablespoons olive oil
225ml (8 fl oz) milk (or water)

optional – teaspoon of sugar or honey
optional – 1/2 teaspoon of salt
optional – 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper

bung it all in the breadmaker at the pizza dough setting
seems to work best with lidl's bread flour which is around 69p the bag which will give you enough for 4 batches

Read the ingredients list!Dough!



Wish I was like you...and I could scientifically analyze what the long term effects on my body were from just reading the ingredients
They all sound so healthy...so they must be... right?

Did you miss the "contains horse meat" on the ingredients list.... during the last food scare perhaps?

Nooooooooooooo!

PLEASE don't go down that extremely boring old 'horsemeat' road! It's not even funny!

I've made a few with these bases, can also pick up the pizza sauce, cheese and toppings usually in the same isle. Super easy to make and relatively quick. Tastes great too!

What a crock I too can be clever and seek out some obscure medical journal article proclaiming the dangers of drinking tap water!

Anyone know what aisle these would be along?

Mine was in aisle with butter and cheese:)

Since when were soya beans "crap"? Asians have been eating them for thousands of years. They are hardly "padding" it anyway, its way down the ingredients below salt, obviously just a sprinkle for texture and taste. The health issues of this you are better looking at how much salt and carbs your getting.

Shame there's not an emoticon for 'projectile vomit'. Who puts that sh1te into their system for the sake of a few extra minutes of easy cooking/prep?

marked as £2 in my tescos but scanned at £1.
quite hard to get into a nice circle but we had a bit of craic trying
pizza cheese £3 for 2
sauce 39p.

4 pizzas for around a fiver and a bit of fun making them with the kids

There was horsemeat in beef products because people are happy to have soya flour in their ready meals? I think not... And even if you are going to buy into that stuff about being an estrogen mimic etc., it will be present in negligible amounts in this pizza.
