  1. For the dough, combine the flours on a clean surface and make a hole in the center.

    Add yeast and sugar to 650 ml of warm water. Stir and then pour into the cavity.

  2. Using a fork and making a circular motion, mix the water with the flour bringing it from the edge of the hole to the center. When the dough is blended, start kneading using your hands to form a ball.

    Knead using your hands to stretch, pull and roll the dough. Continue until you get a smooth and elastic dough.

    Shape into a ball and place it in a bowl covered with plastic wrap. Let it rise until doubled – about 40/50 minutes.


  1. To assemble the pizza, divide the dough in half. Then divide one half of the dough again into 4 equal balls.

    Flour each ball, cover it with cling film and let it rest for another 15 minutes.

    Transfer the dough to a clean surface and using your hands roll it out in a circle about ½ cm thick.


  1. Preheat the oven to 250 ° C / 500 ° F / gas 9.

    At this point spread the tomato sauce on the base, spreading it up to the edges. Break up the mozzarella and sprinkle it over the sauce. Finish with a few basil leaves. Season with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt.

    Bake the pizza in the center of the oven for 15-20 minutes, until the pizzas are golden and crispy.
