It's National Pizza Day on Tuesday 9 February – the perfect excuse to indulge our love of the delicious Italian food.

Along with banana bread and sourdough, making your own pizzas has become a must-try at home in lockdown. The best bit is they're quick to make and you can add your fave toppings - pepperoni, olives, feta, whatever you fancy.

Actress and former Celebrity MasterChef winner Lisa Faulkner, who is married to MasterChef host John Torode, shared her brilliant recipe for a no-yeast pizza during Lockdown 1.0 and we're still using her method today.

I cook Lisa's recipe at home with my children and can confirm it's both simple and delicious – it's become a family favourite! Try it for yourself…
