Step 1.

Mix the flour and 650ml of lukewarm water together until it combines to form a rough mass. Dissolve the yeast in a tbsp of lukewarm water, then add to the dough and mix for a few mins.

Step 2.

Add the salt and keep mixing until you have a smooth elastic dough. This will probably take about 10 mins total mixing.

Step 3.

Shape in a large ball and place into a clean mixing bowl.

Step 4.

Cover and prove until doubled in size (a few hours at room temperature or overnight in the fridge).

Step 5.

Portion the dough into balls, place onto a clean tray leaving about 3 inches between each ball. Cover with clingfilm and allow to prove for another few hours until soft and pillowy.

Step 6.

In a bowl, crush the tomatoes by hand until pulpy, then season with salt. Chop or tear your mozzarella into chunks and put into a bowl.

Step 7.

Once ready, heat a frying pan over a medium high heat and preheat your grill on high. Stretch your pizza out on a well floured surface and place into your frying pan.

Step 8.

Spoon on 3 tbsp of the tomato sauce and spread across the base. Grate over a little parmesan, if using, then add a few basil leaves. Top with a handful of mozzarella.

Step 9.

Cook until the base is golden and crispy, about 3 mins, then place under the grill for another 2 or 3 mins until the top is golden and the cheese is bubbling.

Step 10.

Remove, finish with a drizzle of olive oil and serve hot!

Make sure you don’t add the salt and yeast together, as salt kills yeast and your dough won’t rise!
