  • 325ml water
  • 7g dried yeast

  2. Place the dough in bowl and cover with lightly oiled cling film. Leave to rise for one hour.
  3. Remove the risen dough from the bowl and knock back for 2 minutes. Divide into 6 even pieces, cover loosely with clingfilm and leave to prove again for a further 10 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to the highest setting. Roll out your first piece of dough and place it onto a floured baking tray. Add any sauces and toppings before baking in the oven for 8 minutes, or until the edges are puffed up and golden.
  5. Repeat with the remaining pizzas and serve immediately.

Chefs tip:

This dough can also be used for flatbread. Simply break off a small piece of dough and roll out to approximately 2mm thick. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and cook the flatbreads for 1 minute on each side. Serve warm with hummus.
