Pizzas are interesting for me to make, as I can put whatever topping I have on them, and they are far healthier than shop bought ones.

I have made the base myself as this is also nicer than the shop bought ones, and I can make it very thin this way.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes plus proofing
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 2 - 4 servings

Ingredients
For the pizza base
2 cups plain or bread flour
2 tsp dried yeast
2 tsp caster sugar
2 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
About 1 cup WARM water

For the topping
cup home made pesto, or bought pesto
2 medium tomatoes, sliced thinly
Small jar artichoke hearts, drained, halved and excess moisture squeezed out
185 g baby bocconcini
100 g prosciutto, chopped
1 potato, microwaved, sliced

Method
For the base
Combine the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a medium bowl.

Make a well in the centre, and stir in the oil and enough of the water to make a soft dough.

Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 10 minutes or until it is smooth.

Put the dough in a large oiled bowl, cover and stand in a warm place for about one hour until it doubles in size (it MUST be warm or the yeast will not rise).

Put the dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth.

Divide the dough in half and roll each one on to a floured surface.

Make them as thin as possible


For the topping
Preheat the oven to 210 fan forced, and oil two pizza trays -place the trays in the oven while you finish the dough/topping.

Spread the pesto on to the base of each pizza.

Top with the sliced tomato, artichokes and the potato slices.

Add the bocconcini.

Add pepper if required.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until the bases are crisp, take out of the oven and top with the prosciutto.

Return to the oven for another few minutes just to heat the prosciutto.

Cut each one into 4 pieces and serve.
