Ingredients

Main:

  • oil, for greasing
  • 225 g self-raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • salt
  • 50 g butter, diced
  • 50 g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp plus 1 tsp milk
  • 3 tbsp plus 1 tsp yogurt
  • 225 g tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 225 g mozzarella, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp shredded basil
  • freshly ground black pepper

For the toppings:

  • cooked ham, diced
  • pineapples, diced

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas 7. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

2. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Add the butter and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in
the grated cheese.

3. Whisk together the egg, milk and yoghurt. Add enough to the dough to bind. Knead lightly until smooth.

4. Place the dough on the greased baking sheet. Shape into a 20cm diameter circle about 5mm thick.

5. Cover with tomato slices, mozzarella and your chosen toppings. Sprinkle with the olive oil and basil. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

6. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the scone base has browned. Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.
