Christmas pizza

Walnuts are not only deliciously festive they are high in omega 3, which facilitates signaling molecules, promoting healthy eye and brain neuron health. Turkey contributes half of the daily amount of vitamin B12, important for helping you feel more energized and lower the likelihood of anemia.

Serves 4,  629 kcal per serving


¾ cup water (180 ml)
1 tsp active dry yeast (5g)
2 cups wholemeal strong flour (450g)
½ tsp salt (3g)
1 Tbsp canola oil (15ml)
¾ cup tomato sauce or passata (180ml)
1 cup diced Camembert cheese (140g)
½ cup walnut halves (100g)
¼ cup dried cranberries (30g)
9 oz pieces of cooked turkey breast (255g)


  1. In a jug, mix water, yeast, and oil. In a large bowl, stir the flour and salt together and make a well in the middle. Pour in the water mixture and stir until a rough dough forms. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 10 minutes, until you can see elastic-like strands in the dough.
  2. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a plate or cling film and leave for 30 minutes. Prepare the other ingredients in the meantime.
  3. Set the oven to 375 F (190C).
  4. When the dough has risen, place it back onto a lightly floured surface and split into two, rolling each out into a roughly circular base (don’t worry if they don’t look perfect, they’ll be delicious as oblongs!)
  5. Spread over the tomato sauce or passata, and evenly cover with the toppings.
  6. Place the pizza’s in the oven for 12 minutes, covering with foil or a baking tray on a higher rack halfway through, which stops the cranberries and walnuts from getting charred.
