Homemade pizza with homemade sauce

I have finally got the homemade pizza down to a tee and wanted to share the recipe for both the pizza dough and the pizza sauce we now use. Both are simple and the sauce makes enough for four pizza's (we freeze three of them).

Firstly the dough, you can't use the sauce without a base ready for you, this needs to be made at least 1 hour in advance
You will need: 250 ml of Luke Warm Water 7 g of Dried Active Yeast (can get weighed packets from most stores)
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Sugar
2 tbsp Oil
350 g Strong Bread Flour

Stir in the yeast to the warm water, it will normally go quite cloudy.Add the salt, sugar and oil and give it a good stir.Add the flour and mix until it forms a dough.Pout out onto a flour covered worktop and knead for around 7 - 10 minutes.Place in a large bowl and cover with cling film.Place in the fridge for at least an hour,you should see it rise.When you need the dough, pour onto a flour covered surface, knead and then roll out as required.Add your toppings of choi…

Chessington World of Adventures | Family Day Out

Back in August we were lucky enough to take a trip up to Chessington World of Adventures with the three of us. We were luckily enough to get seats on a community funded project for a coach trip up there. We had such a lovely day so here is our story.

Our coach left our town at 9:30 in the morning and we arrives at about 11 am,we first entered the park through the coach end, which is located near the sea life centre and animals, so this is what we first ventured to, there are so many animals there which Lilly had never seen before, she especially loved the giraffes and the penguins. The zoo and sea life centre added more excitement to Lilly's trip as she got to experience so much in one day.
We sadly miss some of the animals as the signage wasn't amazing and I am terrible at reading maps, but hopefully next time we will managed to visit those ones too.

After we finally managed to find our way to the rides the real adventure began, we had downloaded the app for both the map and…

Halloween Secret Stones with Bojecher Paint Marker Pens

We have been busy today today creating some spooky Halloween inspired secret stones to hide during half term. We were lucky enough to be gifted some paint marker pens by BOJECHER to try out. These are perfect for many different materials such as pebbles, wood, glass, fabric, ceramic and more. 

These are perfect for so many crafts all year round, they're weather proof so will last a long time. The pen has two tips to choose from, a 3mm diagonal one and a 5mm round on, the round one being better for painting bolder lines.
We have had lots of fun creating some scary designs using all 12 colours in the pack, the pack includes 10 normal colours and two metalic ones too. The colours are bright and do not fade when drying, they are quick drying and no need to bake. 

I have many more plans for these from personalised mugs to scrap booking. if you want to check these out I will leave the link below.…
