Pizza this good is hard to come by and it’s so simple and quick, particularly with my little pizza oven.  If you have the dough already made in the fridge (I generally keep some aside when making bread with my bread maker), it’s quicker and easier than making a couple of sandwiches.  The dough actually improves if made 2 – 3 days ahead.  I love the prosciutto and rocket topping but you can use whatever topping you like.

Makes 2 large pizza bases


200ml l warm water
2 tsp instant yeast
1 tbsp olive oil
1 ½ cups bread or plain flour (plus extra for dusting)
1 level tsp salt

Topping for 1 large pizza:

3 tsp tomato paste (puree double concentrate)
3 tbsp grated mozzarella
4 slices prosciutto
1 bunch rocket leaves
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil:
