1 tbsp Freshly chopped Basil

Instructions
 

1. Before you start preparing your ingredients, preheat the oven to 220C, 425F, Gas Mark 7.

 

2. Place the tinned tomatoes, sugar, tomato paste and herbs in a medium si saucepan or frying pan, season with salt and plenty of black pepper and bring to the boil over a high heat, stirring to mix well. Continue to cook over a high heat, stirring frequently, to reduce to a thick consistency.

 

3. Meanwhile, make the base by placing 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.

 

4. 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.

 

5. Check the tomato sauce and reduce the heat if necessary.  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.

 

6.  By now, the tomatoes will have rendered down into a thick mixture. Spread it evenly over the dough. If you are using raw onion slices, scatter evenly over the tomato mixture then top with the grated cheese.

 

7. Finally, arrange the remaining toppings, spacing evenly over the cheese and bake in the hot oven for 8-10 minutes until golden brown and bubbling.

 

9. Drizzle with a little extra olive oil and serve immediately.
