Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup (160ml) lukewarm water
  • 1 1/2 tsp instant dried yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp honey
  • 1 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups (225g) plain flour
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt flakes
  • 350g mixed medley tomatoes
  • 1 cup (100g) grated mozzarella
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil, extra
  • 2 tbs finely grated parmesan
  • Flat-leaf parsley leaves, to serve (optional)

Method

STEP 1

In a small bowl, whisk the warm water, yeast and honey to blend. Set aside for 5 mins or until foamy. Stir in the oil.

STEP 2

In a food processor, blend the flour and salt. With the machine running, pour in the yeast mixture (dough will be wet). Transfer dough to a floured work surface and knead for 3 mins or until it becomes smooth and elastic. The dough will be very tacky but will release cleanly from your hands.

STEP 3

Shape dough into two balls. Place on a floured baking tray and dust the tops with flour. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place for 45 mins or until doubled in size.

STEP 4

Meanwhile, position oven rack in bottom third of oven. Preheat oven to 250°C (230°C fan-forced). Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.

STEP 5

Sort the tomatoes by colour (red, yellow, orange and maroon). Using a serrated knife, thickly slice the tomatoes crossways.

STEP 6

Stretch out each dough ball with floured hands, or roll out on a floured work surface, until 20-25cm wide (dough does not have to be perfectly round). Transfer to prepared trays.

STEP 7

Working quickly, drizzle and rub the extra oil over the dough. Top with mozzarella and parmesan. Arrange the tomatoes by colour in single concentric circles over the cheese, leaving a 2cm border around dough. Sprinkle with pepper, if desired.

STEP 8

Bake for 15 mins or until the crust is crisp and golden brown on the bottom. Transfer pizzas to a cutting board and sprinkle with parsley, if using. Cut into wedges and serve.
