Italian Pizza

For the base

1 tsp instant yeast

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp olive oil

For the tomato sauce

100ml passata (tomato sauce)

1 tsp dried basil

1 garlic clove, crushed

 

For the tomato sauce

100ml passata (tomato sauce)

1 tsp dried basil

1 garlic clove, crushed

For the topping

Cheese and any vegetables or protein of your choice

Make the base: Mix the flour, salt and yeast in a large bowl. Make a well, pour in 200ml warm water and the olive oil and bring together with a wooden spoon until you have a soft, fairly wet dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 mins until smooth. Cover with a tea towel and set aside, let it rise if you want.

Make the sauce: Mix the passata (tomato sauce), basil and crushed garlic together, then season with any other spices and/or herbs of your choice to taste.

Roll out the dough: If you’ve let the dough rise, give it a quick knead, then split into two balls. On a floured surface, roll out the dough very thinly, as it will rise in the oven. Lift them onto two floured baking sheets.

Top and bake: Heat oven to 240C/fan 220C /gas 8. Smooth sauce over bases with the back of a spoon. Scatter with cheese and your toppings, drizzle with olive oil and season. Put one pizza, still on its baking sheet, on top of a preheated tray. Bake for 8-10 mins until crisp. Serve with a little more olive oil. Repeat step for remaining pizza.

Last step: enjoy a traditional thin Italian pizza!
