- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp fast action yeast
- 150 ml lukewarm water
For the topping
- Packet of mozzarella
- Tin of tomatoes
Measure the dry ingredients
Make the dough
Make a well in the flour and pour the water and olive oil into the middle. (To limit mess you could do this in a bowl.)
Mix the ingredients, bringing flour in bit by it until they come together to form a (slightly wet and sticky) dough.
Knead the dough on a lightly floured work surface.
Once the dough ball looks smooth, pop it in a bowl, cover with cling film and leave it in a warm place until its roughly doubled in size.
When it’s ready turn the dough out on to a lightly floured surface, knead it slightly and roll it out. Place it on a baking sheet.
Make the topping
Drain the tin of tomatoes then spread it on the pizza base..
Chop up or grate some mozzarella then get sprinkle that on top.
Add any other topping you like.
Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Keep an eye on it. You may need to turn it if one side is browning faster than the other.
