This pizza takes a bit of forward planning. I find it easiest to make the dough before bedtime – it takes about 10 minutes – so it’s ready to cook the following evening.

Pizza base

  • 4 g/scant 1 tsp instant dried yeast
  • 270–290 ml/9½–10


  • To make the dough, stir the yeast into 5 tablespoons lukewarm water and leave until it starts to froth. Meanwhile, mix together the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl and make a well in the middle. Pour in the yeasted water and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, then gradually add about 270 ml</
