1. Place the flour, salt, olive oil and water in a large mixing bowl. Mix well with a knife until a dough starts to form then pull together with your fingers, adding a very little more water if necessary to form a firm dough.


2. Knead the dough in the bowl for a couple of minutes then turn onto a floured surface and continue to knead for a further 3-4 minutes until you have a firm elastic dough.


3.  Roll the dough out using a lightly floured rolling pin to a thickness of about 6mm/-inch and place on a large baking tray. If you prefer, you can divide the dough into two pieces and roll each out as above.

Once rolled out, spread the pizza crust liberally with a well flavoured homemade tomato sauce (recipe below) then top with ingredients of your choice. Common ingredients used include grated cheese, onions, sweet peppers or chillies, anchovies, tuna, pepperoni, ham and olives.  Keep the toppings in small pieces/slices to ensure they cook through. Once topped, cook your pizza in a hot oven for 10 - 15 minutes.
