    • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve

    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.

    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!

    Great home made pizza. However it is promoted as a 'without the calorie' option. The recipe quotes 231 calories per portion (ie one pizza) without stating how much, cheese is added to the topping (Parmasan and hard goatrs cheese are both 395cal per 100g) it is therefore not possible to accuratly calculate the calorific content.

    Fairly easy to do, I did quite well on my first attempt, however found the passata a bit runny and my pizza wasnt stiff! lol Better luck next time. It tasted so much better than the cheap frozen ones I normally eat!!

    Really impressed with this recipe as I've made pizza in the past that has come out a bit thick and soggy, this made two good sized pizzas (used half the amount suggested) Made with strong wholemeal flour and topped with the roasted tomato sauce (yum!!) mozzerella, basil, mushrooms and salami. Will be making again soon

    Really really yummy with a nice thin base which was very easy to roll. I managed also to make 5 large pizzas with the base :)
