    Step 1

    Start by making your dough. I just stick the flour, water, olive oil and yeast in my bread maker (on the dough setting) and leave it to knead for a couple of hours.

    You can use any kind of flour you like but I prefer wholemeal for a grittier grainier taste.

    Brush a baking tin with some olive oil and put the dough in an oven set to 220 for five minutes. You don't have to pre-bake the base but we prefer it, as it stops the final pizza from getting soggy.

Sorry for the slow reply. We had a kit to make it, though it's mostly just milk, cheese salt and rennet tablets. It's super easy!
