- Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
- Put flour, salt, sugar and dried yeast in a bowl. Give it a quick mix with a spoon, add in olive oil and then give it another quick mix with a spoon. Make a well in the centre of the mixture and pour in some water.
- Then fold the mixture from the outside in and repeat the step until all the water is used or the dough has formed together and is pliable without being sticky.
- Put onto a floured surface and knead well for about 5 minutes. You can use this dough straight away, unlike bread where you have to leave it to expand.
- Then break the dough into 2 pieces. Roll out each piece until they are big enough to fit in a 28cm pizza tray. This mixture will make 2 thin pizza bases.
- Once pizza base has been placed on pizza tray, spread 2 tablespoons tomato puree over the base and then cover with the two types of cheese. Repeat the step for the other pizza base.
- Add some chopped onion and sprinkle some black pepper on as a finishing touch prior to placing in oven (optional).
- Bake in the preheated oven until crust is golden and cheese is melted, about 12 minutes.
You can add chopped salami and ham, or try a ham and pineapple, or a Cajun chicken with chilli or pineapple, or any type of topping you fancy basically. If kids make their own pizza they tend to eat it all.
If you like garlic I would recommend garlic and tomato puree to put on the base. It is lovely and most supermarkets sell it these days.
I normally double the pizza base mixture, use what I need, wrap the rest in cling film, leave to expand for a few hours and then place in fridge until the next day. Suitable for use as part of the Naan recipe I have on the site or making a pizza another day.
