See me on TV on Weekend Extra!

extra-logotv“And here’s one I made earlier!”  Ooh, I’ve always wanted to say that!

Ok so if you’ve never seen the Stove Top Pizza in action, now’s your big chance, particularly if Brisbane Extra is available on your TV stations (Channel 9).  Last week, the Extra crew came around and filmed a segment in my very own kitchen, and I felt very much like an Aussie Nigella for a few hours!  (Minus the twin set outfit and glorious hair!)

Those of you in Brisbane and surrounds can catch the segment on Saturday 28th February at 5.30pm on Channel 9.

Update: click here to view the segment!

We made a delicious ham, pineapple and mushroom, kid-friendly pizza and also one suited more to grown-up tastes, with pancetta, black olives and sun dried (ok, oven dried in my oven) tomatoes.

I doubt that TV chef celebrity will be forthcoming but at least my audience has grown!!!

Here is the Stove Top Pizza recipe:

¾ cup self-raising flour
¾ cup plain flour
(Add another ¼ cup each of flour and water to create a thicker base as desired.)
(Can use gluten free or wholemeal flour too.)
¾ cup lukewarm water
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp dried yeast
Good pinch of salt

Topping – all optional, go crazy on your favourites!
¼ cup tomato passata or puree
1 cup shredded pizza cheese
½ can pineapple pieces, drained
150g shredded ham
100g sliced mushrooms


  1. Combine all dough ingredients in Sauté Pan and mix well.
  2. Press dough using the tips of your fingers, until the base of the pan is covered.
  3. Spread the pasta sauce onto the dough taking it as close to the edge as possible.
  4. Add other toppings of your choice.
  5. Place the pan (with the pizza inside) on the stove over medium heat and cover, making sure the vents are closed.
  6. Cook 5 minutes.
  7. Turn lid to open side steam vents, reduce heat to medium low and cook for a further 20 minutes.
  8. Remove from heat and using egg flip, lift pizza from pan onto a board or serving platter.
  9. Serve immediately.
