Wholemeal Pizza recipe and Weekend Motivation

Last night I decide to make my own pizza dough. I looked up a few different recipes and combined them to form this.. a simple yeast-free wholemeal pizza dough.

Pizza Dough Ingredients
2.5 cups Wholemeal flour
2.5 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
1 cup Water
1 tbsp Olive Oil

It literally took 2 minutes to combine all the ingredients in a bowl and knead it into a nice soft ball of loveliness. I then covered it and let it sit for a while, as I waited for Josh to get home from training.

About 30 minutes before serving, I used my hands to flatten the dough into a nice circular shape and placed in onto a greased baking tray. I baked this in a 200 degree celcius oven for 10 minutes (with no toppings!).

Once the base came out the oven it was nicely golden and held it’s shape well. Then onto the toppings. I covered it in tomato paste, fresh tomatoes (my best on a pizza), red onion, kalamata olives and mozzarella cheese.

Then baked it for approximately 20 minutes.

Served with a fresh green salad topped with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

It was delish! The recipe does need some refining, as it was quite dense. Any tips on making it lighter and less dense? Perhaps I needed to roll it thinner? But I will call it a success as we got through it with great ease 🙂

This morning was my beautiful cousin Lauren’s 30th birthday surprise breakfast. Breakfast was very yum… I started with fruit salad, yoghurt and muesli. Look familiar?? Check out the recipe!

After the party my mum and I headed to a park to catch some sunshine. There were so many people out and about doing just the same thing.

We took our towels, got take-away coffees and enjoyed a good does of Vitamin D for a couple of hours.

I found a great quote on the Nike She Runs facebook page… and SO true!

On that note, I am off to do just that… Body Attack time!
Happy Friday friends!

Things I am loving this Tuesday

Topped up on toiletries today.  I am a big fan of Cetaphil skin cleanser and moisturiser. So soft on the skin, reasonably priced and perfect for day and night use.

Paw Paw Ointment. If you haven’t tried this, quite simply you are missing out! Perfect solution to anything pretty much. Dry skin, lip balm, burns, bites…

Now this was a birthday gift –MOR Cucumber & Casaba handcream. It smells amazing and absorbs really well into the skin- it is perfect timing for a new handcream especially since this cold weather makes my hands horrible. (Thanks Ca and Jase!)

Tuesday night quality Kindle time!

Peppermint tea. I love a cup of pep tea after dinner. Perfect to settle the stomach and help the food digest nicely.

A hot bubble bath. With incense burning and magazines 🙂

And then my new, warm Ugg boots to climb into!
(Another lovely birthday pres, thanks B&C!)

After a relaxing evening it is time for bed.

What are your favourite things this Tuesday? 

Hasta Luego 🙂
