16 ounces 00 flour (or any strong flour in fact)
9 ounces warm water
1/2 teaspoon dried yeast
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 jar passatta
3 cloves garlic
Buffallo Mozzerala
Grated Parmesan
Fresh basil leaves
salt & pepper to season


Bung the passata in a saucepan with a few slightly crushed cloves garlic and simmer until reduced by half. Season to taste.

Meanwhile, put the flour, water, olive oil, yeast and salt into a food processor (if your food processor has a dough hook, great, if not just use the normal blades) and mix until all combined into a soft springy dough.

Place the dough on a floured surface and roll into a ball. Place in a large bowl brushed with olive oil and leave to rise for one hour.

Pre-heat oven as high as it can go.

Then, stretch out dough on a floured surface to desired size/thickness/shape/number of pizzas (thin is best obviously), put on pizza stone/baking tray, spread on sauce, add mozzerela and some grated parmesan.
Cook in oven - mine takes about 4-5 minutes at 300 degress celsius.
Remove from oven and spinkle a few roughly chopped basil leaves, and black pepper.

Eat and say out loud "Fucking hell this is great pizza".
