Spelt pizza

1) add a cup (280ml) warm,not hot, water to a mixing bowl.

2) sprinkle 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast onto water

3) sprinkle 2 tablespoons coconut sugar onto water which helps activate yeast

4) leave for 10 mins. Mixture will have become frothy if yeast is active

5) add a cup of white spelt flour, 1tablespoon oil (I use olive oil) and 1 1/4 teaspoons seasalt (my kids prefer pizza if I replace 1 cup white spelt for 1cup whole meal spelt)

6) mix at a low speed to roughly mix ingredients

7) add 2 more cups spelt flour. mix at high speed.

8) add flour until mixture is a good dough. Will be slightly sticky

9) put dough into a well greased deep bowl, Cover will teatowel and leave in warm place for 1 hour. ( I heat ove and turn off and leave dough in warmth)

10) dough can be rolled out. It will make 2 large pizzas. I roll out on grease proof paper which I then set on a pizza tray

11) spread tomato purée onto pizzas (I use Napolina double concentrate tube)

12) sprinkle cheese on top and cook 10-12 mins at 200
