  • We just love this cheesy, and super speedy pizza made on a pancake base.

    This is the ultimate easy take on pizza. Rather than make a dough which you need to knead, rest and stretch, you just make up a batter in a bowl. Give it a quick blast on the hob before transferring the whole thing to the oven to cook. Sometimes called a Dutch baby pizza, it’s a cinch, and a really pleasing way to cook a pizza. Unlike our classic thin pancake recipe, it will really rise up in the pan. You’ll need a hob-and-oven-safe pan to make cooking as easy as possible. Feel free to adapt the pizza toppings to your liking. Leave out the pepperoni for a veggie version, or add an extra kind of cheese.


    • For the pancakes:
    • 125g plain flour
    • ¼ tsp baking powder
    • Pinch of salt and pinch of pepper
    • 2 large eggs
    • 125ml whole milk
    • 25g melted butter
    • 4 tbsp pizza sauce
    • 125g mozzarella
    • Torn sliced pepperoni
    • 2 tbsp chopped olives
    • Oregano leaves


    • Combine the flour, salt, pepper, baking powder, eggs and milk in a bowl and whisk until the batter is smooth. Let the mixture rest for 20 minutes.

    • In a frying pan, melt the butter and use a brush to coat the pan with the buttery liquid. Pour the pancake mixture into the middle of the pan and let it cook for a moment.

    • Remove the pan from the hob and place in the oven for 15 minutes at 200ºC/400ºF/Gas 6.

    • Remove the pan from the oven. Spread the tomato pizza sauce base over the pancake and spread the mozzarella, pepperoni and olives over the top.

    • Place the pan back in the oven for 8 minutes until the toppings have melted and cooked. Sprinkle with the oregano leaves before serving.
