  • 150 g bread flour
  • 105 ml water
  • ½ tsp yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil.
  • 4 tbsp tomato pizza sauce
  • 80 g mozzarella
  • Grana Padano
  • Prosciutto di San Daniele
  • leaves Rocket
  1. Dissolve the yeast in the water. Mix together the flour, salt, the water and yeast mixture and oil. Mix until it all comes together in a dough. Turn this dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and pliable. This will take 5-10 minutes. 

  2. Form the dough in a ball and place it back in the mixing bowl. Cover, and leave to rise for about an hour. 

  3. Pre-heat the oven on its hottest setting. Place a pizza stone or thick baking tray inside to warm. 

  4. Turn the dough out onto the re-floured surface, and roll out to a thin disc. As you roll, keep turning the dough to make sure it doesn't stick. 

  5. Sprinkle some polenta onto a baking tray, and place the pizza base on top. Spread tomato sauce evenly onto the base. Spread the mozzarella slices evenly. 

  6. Slide onto the hot pizza stone or baking tray, and cook for about 10 minutes. It's cooked when the dough around the edges is lightly browned and crusty. 

  7. Garnish the hot pizza with slivers of Grana Padano, slices of Prosciutto di San Daniele, and rocket leaves.
