For the dough:
125g extra strong white bread flour
1tbsp Mellow Yellow Rapeseed Oil
75ml tepid water
For your topping:
2tbsp tomato puree
60g grated mozzarella
Preheat your oven to 230°C/210°C fan and put a baking tray in the oven to get hot.
In a large mixing bowl, mix all dough ingredients together using your hands. Once combined, knead until smooth and no longer sticky. It should be quite sticky at first but the more you work it together, the less sticky it will become and should turn into a smooth ball of dough.
Leave covered for around 30 minutes, or up to a few hours if you are not ready to cook your pizza yet.
Split your dough in half and roll out on a floured greaseproof paper. Spread tomato puree over each pizza and cover with grated mozzarella. Use slices of each topping ingredient to create your smiley faces! Get creative!
Slide onto a tray and transfer to the hot tray in the oven.
Cook for 10-12 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
