Method

  • Pre heat the oven to 240°c
  • Put the flour into a bowl and stir in the yeast and salt.
  • Pour in the 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 at least 5 mins until smooth. Cover with a tea towel and put to one side.
  • You can leave the dough to rise if you like, but it’s not necessary for a thin crust pizza.
  • For the sauce: Mix passata, basil and crushed garlic together, and season to taste. Leave to stand while you get on with preparing the base.
  • For an alternative try a bbq sauce base with cheese and chicken.
  • Split the dough into 4 portions and roll out on a floured surface to fit a tray or pizza crisper.
  • Spread sauce topping and sprinkle with cheese and then add toppings of choice.
  • Cook for between 10 and 15 minutes, until the base is golden and crispy.
