    Method

    1. For the dough, put the flour, yeast and 2 tsp salt into a large bowl and mix. Make a well. Mix the oil and water in a jug, then tip into the bowl. Use a wooden spoon to work the liquid into the flour – it will seem pretty wet. Set the bowl aside for 15 mins. Leaving the dough like this will save you from lengthy kneading later.

    2. Turn the dough onto a well-floured surface, flour your hands, then knead it very gently for about 2 mins until it is fairly even, soft and bouncy. Return the dough to the bowl, cover with oiled cling film, then let it rise in a warm place (or in the fridge overnight) until doubled in size.

    3. When ready to cook, heat oven to 240C/220C fan/gas 9 or as hot as it will go, then put a baking sheet in on a high shelf. Dust another sheet with flour. Split the dough into 8, then roll 3 balls thinly into rough circles. Lift onto the floured sheet. Smear over a thin layer of the sauce, scatter over a few slices of tomato, season, then add sliced goat’s or grated Parmesan cheese if you want to. Slide the sheet on top of the heated sheet. Bake for 12 mins or until golden and crisp and the tomatoes are starting to caramelise around the edges. Top with any fresh toppings, then drizzle with more olive oil to serve.

    Great recipe! Really delicious! Dough was a bit moist but that could have been my fault - first time :)

    Good recipe, only thing I found was 350ml of water was too much and I couldn't roll out the dough, used 250 instead and it worked much better!

    Just made these with my 4 year old daughter and we loved them. We took the passata route. Instead of goat/parmasan cheese we used grated mozzarella and popped some mushrooms on and a small drizzle of ev olive oil. 8-10 mins in oven too for us...a must try n great saturday afternoon activity.

    I LOVE this recipe and so do my husband and family. I'm a fan of traditional, super-thin pizzas and these turn out better than most restaurants'. Great too about pre-heating one of the trays - pizzas cool in under 10minutes and are crisp and delicious!

    Easy and simply delicious - my boyfriend was surprised to see pizzas without any cheese on them, but we both enjoyed them enormously. We chose to try pizzas with tomato sauce, rocket and 1) goat cheese and rocket or 2) prosciutto. I totally recommend it!
