Chorizo and Cheddar Pizza

Chorizo and Cheddar Pizza

Bread, when made at home, can be one of the most frugal foods out there and what a lot of people don’t seem to realise is that includes pizza. So, when you’re spending £5-6 on a “top-notch” pizza from a supermarket you’re spending far more than necessary. Even pre-made pizza bases are extortionately priced – particularly since they tend to be insipid, uninspiring imitations of what is, in reality, a very basic product. The best approach to take is to make a large amount of dough in advance, portion it out and freeze it for later use.

Cheese and Onion Potato Bread

Cheese and Onion Potato Bread

It’s rather surprising that a recipe for Potato Bread hasn’t yet been featured here. I’ve long been a proponent of this frugal root vegetable, so this is a truly inexcusable oversight. Indeed, the entire concept is one that is incredibly appealing; it’s clear that this is one loaf of bread that is going to possess flavour in prodigious quantity, in addition to a moist, pleasurable texture. Happily, this is one recipe that doesn’t disappoint, not that my recipes tend to do so, and is the perfect accompaniment to any soup or casserole.

Almost every culture and civilisation in the known world has a variety of flatbread it is able to call its own, in one way or another.

It seems that the whole point of a flatbread is that you can mould them to be whatever is desired – this recipe for Garlic and Herb Flatbreads remains within that tradition.

Walnut Bread

Baking bread is one of those ironic acts that everyone wants to do, but very few actually go ahead with. Yet, despite the evident irony, the state of laziness in which we find ourselves is understandable; there is something magical about the smell and taste of freshly baked bread, hence the desire; yet the process itself can appear rather time consuming. Indeed, those of us who do occasionally succeed in baking a loaf of bread do so on days on which one has the luxury of being able to potter around the house. We all fall foul of such lethargy from time to time, myself included, so I shall try my utmost to instil within you an overwhelming compulsion to leaven on a regular basis. That is, assuming indolence isn’t the reason behind your lack of freshly baked bread.
