I don't know about you, but there are often times in my house when we're hungry for a little snack, but we've run out of bread and there's nothing we fancy in the larder. So, at home, I make these great flatbreads all the time. It's the easiest bread I have ever made - there's no yeast and no proving time - have a go and you'll see what I mean.
Garlic and rosemary focaccia
Focaccia is my favourite type of Italian bread. I's not too hard to make and you can take it in loads of different directions by changing the toppings. I've gone for good old garlic and rosemary here but you could try combos like cherry tomatoes and basil or three cheese. Just keep it light and you'll be onto a winner.
You can't beat the smell of freshly baked bread wafting through the kitchen! Baking your own loaf is such a rewarding, therapeutic, tactile thing and you'll be so proud of yourself once you've cracked it.
Basic pizza dough
Pizza is probably one of the most famous dishes in the whole world. This is a really simple method for making your own pizza dough.
Pizza margherita with different toppings
When it comes to topping a pizza, the only thing you need to remember is: less is more. Keep your combinations simple and don't overload it with toppings.
