    What do you all of you SW experts do about having pizza?

    Do you make your own, using pittas or pizza bases? Or are there certain sotre ones that aren't too bad?

    I tried the potato base, and it is OK, but next time I think I will have pizza on a red day and use a butterflied chicken breast as the base.

    I make the smash based one and think its great- a real good alternative if you want a free base and use your HEX A for the cheese. It doesn't taste like traditional pizza base, but you get to put all the usual toppings on and get creative- I make mine really thin and huge so it overlaps my plate- yum

    Pizza is what I miss the most, and unlike other things you can't even really have it (without flexi syns)

    Thanks everyone.

    I've had a look at the smash recipe and soe comments about it on here and I think it'll definitely be worth a try. If all else fails I'll make them on half a pitta and count the pitta syns.

    I use a wholemeal tortilla as a pizza base (there's a thread on this in the recipe sub-forum). It works really well and I think better than messing around with smash.

    If you dont put the filling on it (well the tomato base), I would have thought you would be fine, otherwise it goes soggy if left for to long.

    The tomato topping that I prefer, is mixing passta with crushed garlic and herbs and warming it through before putting it on top of the pizza base.
    I then add chopped onion, sweetcorn, peppers, mushrooms, ham (if on ee day) and olives (syns), before my allowance of cheese and sticking it back in the oven....delicious!
    Another one I love is a baked bean pizza - using baked beans for the tomato topping replacement and then adding all the other bits...thats really nice too!

    I do quite like making the pitta bread ones, and luckily my other half will eat those too, but the majority of the time I'll just have a flexible sins day and have the pizza I reaaaaaally want (maybe once a month or so) - current favourite is the bbq chicken one from aldi if shop bought :D
