How to make pizza

Points to remember

  • Preheat oven and a baking sheet to 220C/fan 200C.
  • Mix strong bread flour, salt and fast-action yeast together in a large bowl. Quickly stir in lukewarm water and olive oil and bring together to a rough dough.
  • Tip out the mixture onto a lightly floured worksurface and knead for 5 mins until you have a smooth, springy dough.
  • Roll out into a thin round (you may have to stretch it with your hands a little) and place on a floured baking sheet.
  • Add your favourite toppings (such as tomato passata, mozzarella, vegetables or cured meats), place the floured sheet on top of the preheated sheet and bake for 10-15 mins, until the pizza is golden and crispy.
