Balmoral PieHealthy SundaesHomemade Pizza No Cook BagThis is one of my cheats as I use a ready to roll pizza dough, however like many of my batch cook dishes, it’s mainly homemade and certainly better than buying a supermarket pizza. The kids have great fun adding the toppings and I know exactly how much cheese goes into it and what the tomato base is made of.
Use small sealable freezer bags for these pizza raw bags. Simply put all the toppings you want in the bag rather than tell you what you like on your pizza simply add any topping you like, I use…..

A great friend Sarah-Jane made it for me once and I now make it every few weeks.
