125g Shipton Mill strong white bread flour

2.5g Angelsey Sea Salt

2 heaped tblspns sourdough starter (discard)

1 good tblspn olive oil

85-90 ml cool water

A little extra flour & semolina for dusting


Mix all ingredients together in mixing bowl and using dough hook give a good 5-10 mins in mixer until dough leaves the bowl clean.

Put into a well oiled bowl and cover for a couple of hours until risen by at least twice the size. Turn out onto a board scattered lightly with flour & semolina, give a gew stretches and turns before rolling out into either one or two pizza bases depending what suits you. I go for two oblong ones which suits our eating habits. Place on an oven tray,  brush with olive oil, cover and leave to rest for half an hour or so in a warmish place.

Add toppings as you see fit, starting with a tomato paste, sliced mozarella & tomatoes, maybe a few onions lightly softened in a pan, olives, grated cheese or whatever suits or you have in the fridge. Leave to rest as oven warms up to 200C and cook for 15-20 mins until the base is risen and golden and any cheese has melted.
