Homemade Dairy-Free Pizza

Hello lovelies,

I haven't posted a food post in agessss, and that is quite surprising as I am quite the foodie! So, I thought I would share with you one of my favourite recipe's that I have recently created. I was inspired by the dairy-free pizza in Pizza Express, and decided that it was time to put together a homemade recipe available for me to make at home. 


Necessary ingredients:

  • Pizza base dough - I use the SWEETPEA Pantry Playful Pizza Dough Mix, but any will do.
  • You may need different add-ins for the dough but this one requires oil and water.
  • Flour.
  • Free From Creamy Tomato Stir-In but any will be fine.
  • Leaves, whatever you desire I used rocket salad but spinach is also great.
  • Pepper.
  • Any other toppings that you desire, obviously if you eat diary you can go ahead and add cheese, etc...

1) Create the dough, according to your mix add the correct measurements of ingredients. If you are using the same mix as me  for one large pizza I used half the powder, 1 tablespoon of oil and half the amount of lukewarm water.

2) Powder a surface with flour. 

3) Kneed the dough until non sticky and in one ball.

4) Put in a bowl, lightly oiled, and leave for 30 minutes to rise, one hour if using all the dough powder. Cover with clingfilm. 

5) Gather all ingredients and a rolling pin.

Remember that you can add whatever you desire, I kept mine simple!

6) Roll out the risen dough and add tomato and your toppings.

7) Transfer to a floured baking tray.

8) Bake for the suggested time on the base box, ensure that you check every now and then to get it done to how you like it.

9) Enjoy.

Thats it, simple! 

Let me know your thoughts in the comment section.

Exploring Brighton

Yesterday, myself and my family (apart from one of my younger brother's, who is in turkey) visited Brighton. Somewhere which I have seen in many vlogs on youtube, Zoella and Alfie of course (and many others) and I have been waiting for a lovely sunny day to explore as much of the town as I can. We left at 7am so we arrived at about 8am and we had the whole day for exploring which was great! We started with the old lanes (North Lanes) which contained very unique shops with a lot of antique objects and abstract clothing. They were so interesting and I enjoyed wondering up and down the lanes. We had a photoshoot around the town as graffiti was common amongst the street walls, bins and other pieces of building in Brighton. I personally loved it as it looked super artistic and the graffiti was creative, not destructive. We stopped for lunch in Pizza Express, one of my favourites, yes you can get a cheese free pizza!! We then strolled down to the beach and the pier and we ended up going on all of the funfair rides, which were so fun and entertaining. Unluckily, my mum and dad had to wait hours for me and my brother to finish going on them all (over and over again I must admit) but they had fun laughing at us screaming on all of them! I fell in love with Brighton and I would love to visit again, maybe for a few days next time :) 

BIG NEWS: I just started a Youtube channel!!!! My first video is a vlog from Brighton which I enjoyed creating. I would appreciate any likes, comments or subscriptions and if you're interested then click below to see it! Otherwise I have put in my favourite photos of the day below! Enjoy :)


Lots of Love

Victoria and Albert Museum | London

Last Sunday,  I visited the Victoria and Albert museum in London, with my family. It is the world's largest decorative arts and design museum and it also has a whole section on fashion (the true reason why I wanted to go). It was very different to what I expected, however it was so interesting and I learnt a lot of new things. The fashion part, photos will be shown below, was definitely the highlight go the day and I enjoyed looking at all of the fashion pieces from years ago up until the present day. The art was also insane, there were old fashioned staircases which were beautiful and the museum as a whole is built in such a detailed, beautiful way. 

Fashion Part:

I can't remember what year these are from but old fashioned clothes are some of my favourites.

Can we just take a moment to look at how beautiful this dress is, I would love to try this on!

These were some of my favourite pieces from the fashion collection, I love the colour schemes, take me back to these days :) 

If you're in London or have the opportunity then make sure to have a look round, it is huge and I'd be surprised if there isn't a section that doesn't interest you. I would definitely go back as I did not go around the whole of the museum and my dad doesn't like looking at the writing in museums so we were in a bit of a rush to get out. I would love to return to look at everything in more detail, etc...

Let me know in the comments if you have ever been to the V&A museum or if your planning to go!
