Ingredients
  

  • 300ml tepid water
  • 2 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 teaspoons dried yeast
  • 500 g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon mixed herbs
  • 100 g / 4oz cheddar cheese grated
  • 100 g soft goats cheese sliced and halved
  • 1/2 pepper deseeded and chopped
  • 12 black olives halved

Instructions
 

  • Place the tepid water in a bowl and add the sugar and stir
  • Sprinkle on the dried yeast and stir
  • Set aside for 10-15 minutes until frothing on the top
  • Put the flour and salt into a bowl and make a well in the middle
  • Add the yeast liquid
  • Draw together into one mass using floured hands until it forms together in one ball of dough
  • Knead the dough on a floured work surface – pushing the dough away with one hand and then drawing back towards you
  • Keep kneading for about 10 or so until it is smooth and elastic. Add a little more flour if it still a little sticky after 10 minutes
  • Place the dough in a bowl, cover with a tea towel and leave in a warmish place for about an hour, or until it has roughly doubled in size
  • Once the dough is ready, lift it out of the bowl and knock it back by punching the air out of it
  • Divide the dough into four equal parts
  • Roll each lump of dough into a ball and place in a bowl or on the work surface, covered with a cloth for 10-20 minutes
  • Work each ball into a round pizza shape using your hands, gently squashing and thinning it out as evenly as you can. Don’t worry if it is not perfectly round!
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C or gas mark 8
  • Put the chopped tomatoes in a bowl and add the herbs and pepper and mix with a handheld mix food processor whizz the tomatoes until smooth. (skip this step if you don't have a processor)
  • Cover each pizza with the tomato mixture
  • Divide the cheese into four and cover the tomato
  • Add pieces of the sliced goats cheese
  • Sprinkle the chopped pepper between the cheese slices
  • Add the halved olives, distributing them evenly
  • Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the dough is cooked and the cheese, melted
