  • 110ml (3½ oz) warm water
  • ½ sachet (3-4g) dried yeast
  • 200g (7oz) strong bread flour
  • ½ tbsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 50g (1¾ oz) passata
  • ½ tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 1 ball fresh mozzarella (drained and torn into pieces)
  • fresh basil leaves (optional)


Place an ovenproof frying pan, skillet or roasting tin in the oven and preheat to 200°C/Gas Mark 6. In the measuring jug, combine the warm water and yeast.
Weigh the flour, sugar and salt into the mixing bowl and thoroughly mix before pouring in the yeast and water.
Bring the dough together with your hands then, on a floured surface, knead for a few minutes before returning to the mixing bowl. Leave in a warm place for 10 minutes to prove.
Lightly flour a clean surface. Once the dough has proved, turn it out onto the floured surface and roll into a circle the size of your frying pan or skillet, or shape into a circle that will sit nicely in your roasting tin. Use oven gloves to remove the pan, skillet or tin from the oven and transfer the dough into it.
Being careful of the hot pan, skillet or tin, spoon the passata on the dough, sprinkle on the dried herbs and torn mozzarella.
Use oven gloves to return the pan or tin to the oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes and top with fresh basil leaves before serving.
