Makes 6 small pizza bases
500g strong bread flour
300ml of water
A generous glug of olive oil
Watch Mr BP in action here.
Mix together all of the ingredients in a large bowl until a smooth dough forms.
If the dough is a little too wet, add a handful of more flour. Similarly, you can add a little more oil if it feels too dry.
Knead the dough. Let little ones squish and pull it. You can split it in half and swap pieces after a few minutes to make sure it gets a proper bashing. Leave the dough in the bowl, cover it and let it prove for 1.5 hours.
Once doubled in size, cut the dough into 6 equal pieces, shape into balls, place on baking trays, cover with cling film and prove again for about an hour.
Stretch or roll the dough into flat bases. Top with a tomato base and toppings of your choice and then bake as hot as your oven will go on a baking tray or, if the bottom of your oven is clean (enough), you can bake the pizza on their for a more authentic pizza stone effect. Bake for about 5 minutes - until it's a done as you like it.
