Ingredients

For the dough:

  • 400 g plain flour
  • 1 tsp raw sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 30 g olive oil
  • 2 tsp instant yeast
  • 220 g warm water

For the pizza toppings:

  • 3 tbs pizza sauce
  • 4 pork sausages
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1-2 fresh tomatoes, sliced
  • 200 g bocconcini
  • bunch of fresh basil leaves
  • Kewpie (Japanese) mayo, to serve

Instructions

  • Too make the dough, sift the flour into a bowl. Add the sugar, salt and oil.
  • Put the yeast sachet into the warm water and leave for a few minutes (or until frothy). Mix together. Pour the yeast liquid into the flour and mix together (add more water if needed).
  • Knead on a floured board into a ball.
  • Place in a bowl floating in a sink of hot water (don't let any of the water into the bowl) and cover with a tea towel. Leave for 30 minutes to rise.
  • Knead the dough on the floured board again.
  • Roll out to make a large 32cm dough circle.
  • Place the dough onto the tray and spread over the pizza sauce. 
  • Preheat oven to 220 degrees celsius (fan-forced). 
  • Squeeze the pork sausages out of the skin and mix on a bowl with the chilli flakes. Cook in a frying pan over medium-high heat in small balls until brown.
  • Add the cooked pork and sliced tomatoes to the pizza and cook for 10 minutes (or until the base is almost cooked). 
  • Add the bocconcini and cook until melted and the base is crispy (approximately 5-10 minutes). 
  • Top with fresh basil and Kewpie mayo and serve immediately. 

Notes

This pizza dough will make enough for 1 large pizza and 4-5 mini pizzas. 
Kewpie (Japanese) mayo can be found in the Asian section of any major supermarket.
