Ingredients

Dough

  • 100 g wholemeal bread flour
  • 250 g white bread flour
  • 250 ml tepid water
  • 2 tsp dried fast-action yeast
  • Pinch of salt

Tomato Sauce

  • 1/2 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • Handful of fresh thyme
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp tomato puree
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • Pinch of black pepper

Toppings - Any you like!

  • Mozzarella
  • Handful of basil
  • Parmesan, grated
  • Fresh cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 chili, chopped
  • Drizzle of olive oil

Method

  1. Place the flours, yeast and salt into a mixing bowl and stir. Add the water and, using your hands, form into a dough. Tip onto a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes or until the dough bounces back when pressed. Place back in the bowl and cover, leaving it to prove in a warm place for 1 hour.

  2. 5 minutes before proving finishes, make the sauce. Place the tomatoes, thyme, garlic, tomato puree, garlic paste and pepper into a saucepan and stir together on a medium heat. Then leave to simmer, stirring occasionally, on a low heat whilst you prepare the dough.

  3. Tip the proved dough onto a floured surface and knead very quickly. Then divide into 2 and roll out each pizza until it is 5mm thick. Place on a greased and floured baking tray.

  4. Spoon out the sauce onto both pizzas and spread in a circular motion. Add the cheeses and any toppings you like and then drizzle with a little olive oil. Place in the oven for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the crust is crispy. Enjoy!
