If you don’t have an oven for any reason- your old one is broken, the oven door doesn’t shut properly, or you are on a camping trip, then you can still make a delicious pizza. The ones you make yourself are usually more to your taste than the ones you can get delivered, as only you know what your individual taste is.
  Try this recipe for a pizza without an oven and see what you think. You can make your own topping or filling for calzone and experiment with different cheeses. With this recipe we have used processed mini-cheeses and other processed cheese, but clearly a good piece of Cheddar would be ideal. However you can use whatever cheese comes to hand.

250 gr plain (fine) flour
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup hot water

150 gr cheese
1 onion cut into thin rings
1 tomato cut into slices, seeds removed
1 green pepper cut into rings
6 black olives stones removed and sliced
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
½ tsp salt
½ tsp dried oregano
1 tbsp olive oil
1 egg, beaten

Put the yeast and sugar in a cup and pour the hot water over them. Leave this for 10 minutes.
Mix the salt with the flour and sprinkle drops of the oil in the mixture. Rub the flour through your palms so that the oil is well mixed in.
Add the water with the yeast and salt in it and knead the mixture into dough. Add more water if necessary.
Cover the dough with a cloth and leave to rise for at least 2 hours.
Divide the dough into 4 equal parts.
In a frying pan put half tbsp oil and swirl around the pan so that it is evenly coated. Take ¾ of the dough and spread it evenly in the base of the frying pan.
Put the pan over a low heat for 5 minutes so that the bottom of the dough is cooked. Remove from the heat.
Now turn the dough over and put ½ the cheese on the dough which has been cooked. Add the rest of the topping (but not the egg) and decorate it as you wish.
Roll out or flatten the remaining ¼ of the dough so that it will fit over the base of the pizza. Join the two pieces of dough with the beaten egg and leave for a few minutes so that it is joined well.
Brush the rest of the oil over the top of the dough lid.
Now put the pan back over a low heat and cook for 30 minutes, turning the pizza every five minutes so that both sides are cooked equally.
Now it is ready to serve. You can remove the lid and serve, or leave it on and eat like calzone.
This has Taste and is a Treat.
