I used to think it was difficult making pizza, getting the dough to rise and all that kneading but now you can get bread mix with the yeast in it and all you have to do it add water, mix and leave it some where warm then make you pizza…easy peasy!

Most supermarkets like Siansburys, Asda and Lidl do a bread mix, buy the wholemeal version, it better for your heart and digestion.Its good when you are fasting for sustained energy.Whole contains all the original vitamin and mineral as well as the wheatgerm and bran.
