  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Step 5

    Sort the tomatoes by colour (red, yellow, orange and maroon). Using a serrated knife, thickly slice the tomatoes crossways.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
