These quantities make one approximately 25cm diameter pizza.
1/4 quantity of basic pizza dough (approx 300-400g)
400g tinned chopped tomatoes drained of excess liquid
2-3 tbsps pesto (homemade is best)
1 ball of mozzarella
salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat your oven so that it is pretty much as hot as it will go. I generally go for 220C. Put your baking sheet/stone/skillet in the oven and leave to heat up.
- Once the oven has reached full heat, roll out your dough to the size of your cooking pan.
- Place the dough in your pan taking care not to touch it as the pan will be super hot.
- Spread the pesto over the base followed by the chopped tomatoes then tear the mozzarella with your hands and scatter over the top. Season with salt and pepper to taste then bake in the oven for around 13 minutes or until golden brown on top.
