This homemade Four Cheese Pizza poses stiff competition to popular store-bought variants like ‘cheese burst’ and ‘cheese overload’. This pizza is made from the ground up – we are going to make everything from the dough to the base and the toppings ourselves – and that is what gives it a totally fabulous texture and flavour.
Herby seasonings add a lot of punch to this cheesy pizza, which is topped with four delectable varieties of cheese and tomatoes. An abundance of cheese also means that this pizza must be enjoyed as soon as it is baked, before the cheese gets chewy, so be ready with your fork and knife!
To enhance your pizza meal pair it with a glass of your favourite beverage.
