10 ml Salt (2 tsp)
5 ml Sugar (1 tsp)
45 g Margarine (3 tbsp)

  1. Mix all dry ingredients together, then rub the margarine into the flour with the fingertips. Add the Anchor Instant Yeast and mix.

  4. Knock the dough down, divide into 8 equal pieces and roll each piece into a circle to fit into the pans. Place pizza bases into greased pans.
  5. Spread the tomato paste or salsa over the base and layer the rest of the topping, ending with the cheese. Season to taste.
