- 250g strong white bread flour
- 250g plain white flour
- 5g powdered dried yeast
- 10g salt
- 325ml warm water
- About 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 handful coarse flour (rye, semolina or polenta), for dusting

In a bowl, mix the flours, yeast, salt and water to form a sticky dough.
Mix in the oil, then turn out on to a clean work surface and knead until smooth and silky.
Shape into a round, and leave to rise in a clean bowl, covered with a plastic bag, until doubled in size. This should take about 2 hours
Preheat the oven (and pizza stone or substitute) as high as it will go.
Take a lime-sized piece of dough and roll it into a 5mm thick round.
Dust a rimless baking sheet with coarse flour, lay the dough on it.
stretch out the dough and pinch the edges.
Get your ladle and put the passata in the middle then use the back of the ladle to spread it.
Then sprinkle your cheese and other toppings .
Slip the pizza from the sheet on to the hot stone or baking tray .
Bake until any cheese is bubbling and the base is taking on some colour, seven to nine minutes.
cut up and eat it
