Ingredients

  • 375g organic plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 7g sachet fast-action dried yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for greasing and drizzling
  • 6 tbsp passata
  • 3 large ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • 6 tbsp mascarpone
  • 250g bocconcini (mini mozzarella balls)
  • 12 thin prosciutto slices
  • 24 black olives
  • 75g wild rocket
  • Small handful fresh basil leaves

Method

  1. Make the dough. Put the flour, yeast and salt in a large bowl and gradually mix in 225ml lukewarm water and the oil, until the dough is manageable but not too sticky.
  2. Tip onto a floured work surface and knead for 10 min until smooth and stretchy. Put into a lightly oiled bowl and cover with cling film. Leave in a warm place for 1 hour, until doubled in size.
  3. About 30 min before you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 230°C/fan210°C/gas 8. Knead the dough for a few min, cut into 6 and cover with cloth. Roll each piece – first with a rolling pin, then your fingers – to a rough 20cm circle with a rim. Put on oiled baking sheets.
  4. Spread 1 tablespoon passata over each base. Arrange the tomato on top and dot over the mascarpone and bocconcini. Bake for 12-15 min.
  5. Arrange 2 prosciutto slices on each pizza and top with olives, rocket and basil. Drizzle with oil and season with pepper to serve.
