  • Put the dough ball into an oiled bowl and cover with a damp towel or Clingfilm to prove, and double in size, this will take around an hour – hour and half.
  • Meanwhile fry the chopped Onion with the minced Garlic in a pan, when cooked add the tin of organic tomatos and season, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Flour a work surface and tip the dough ball onto it  and knock the air out of it and divide into 4 pieces.
  • Work each piece with your fingers and palm to flatten the bough into Pizza shapes as thin as you dare and around 10mm thik around the edge, and place on a baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle grated cheese over the dough fist then the tomato sauce in blobs around the pizza.
  • Scatter some ripped up Basil over the Pizza.
