Pizza Margarita

Makes 4 x 25cm pizzas
400g flour
1 tsp instant yeast
½ tbsp salt
180g very ripe plum tomatoes, chopped
1 clove garlic (optional)
400g mozzarella cheese
16 fresh basil leaves
Olive oil

1 Put the flour, yeast and salt into a food processor. With the motor running, add warm water (about 300ml) to make a soft dough.

2 Shape the dough into a ball and transfer it to a lightly oiled bowl, preferably the same temperature as the dough. Cover with clingfilm or a clean tea towel and leave to rise for one hour at room temperature.

3 Pre-heat the oven to its highest temperature. Divide the dough into four pieces, shape into balls and leave on a floured work surface for 15 minutes.

4 Roll the balls into 25cm circles (or get creative with your own shapes), leaving the edges slightly higher than the centre.

5 Spread the top gently with olive oil (not too hard as you’ll make the dough stick to the tray) then add the tomatoes.

6 Season with salt, cover with cheese and arrange the basil leaves on top. You can make pizza faces out of the toppings for extra fun.

7 Bake for around five minutes until the mozzarella is bubbling.
