Ingredients

For the base

  • 300 g strong bread flour
  • 1 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 200 ml water lukewarmFor the sauce
  • 1 jar for pizza sauce or tomato puréeFor topping
  • 150 g grated mozzarella
  • Black olives
  • Green and orange peppers

Instructions

  • Add the flour, yeast and salt into bowl and mix together
  • Add 200ml (6.8floz) of lukewarm water and bring together in the bowl with a wooden spoon or by hand
  • Turn the dough out on to a floured work surface and knead for a few minutes until smooth and return to the bowl.
  • Cover with a wet tea towel or cling film for an hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F (180C/360F fan), turn the dough out and divide into two equal parts.
  • On floured work surface roll the dough out until just larger than the kitty template (which download here as a pdf or as an image).
  • Place the template over the dough.
  • Cut around the template with a sharp knife to form the head.
  • With the leftover dough roll out six breadsticks around 4 inches long for the whiskers.
  • Cut the green peppers into two circles (I used a very tiny biscuit cutter), and add a slither of olive for the pupils. Make the nose and mouth out of the orange pepper.
  • Add the pizza sauce, mozzarella and vegetables to make a face. Lay the breadsticks on top of the pizza for whiskers.
  • Bake for 12 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
