Is it a scon or scooone?

Well actually it's a pizza!

My pizza base is made from a traditional scone mixture, add tomato base and some cheese and then whatever else you want. So here goes - 

Pizza Base

200g self raising flour
100g butter
1 egg beaten
pinch salt

Put the dry ingredients into a bowl and then chop the butter into cubes and then add to the dry ingredients. Rub the butter into the dry ingredient using the tips of your fingers. Add the beaten egg a little at a time until the dry mixture comes together into a soft dough. (May need a little milk but add sparingly). Roll out to a 12in or 30cm circle or whatever shape you prefer; square, oblong or as it ends up.

Tomato base

4 tbsp tomato puree
4 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tsp basil or mixed herbs

Mixed together and then spread across the pizza base. Add grated cheese and whatever you fancy. Put it into a medium/hot oven and cook for about 20 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and brown.
