  1. If you are making your own dough, add all dry ingredients to a large bowl (being careful to seperate the salt from the yeast)
  2. Add the water and bring together into a ball. This shouldn’t be too dry or sticky so add water or flour to bring back the right consistancy.
  3. Rest the dough in somewhere warm until it is doubled in size.
  4. Dust the surface you are using to roll out with a handful of flour
  5. Take the dough and roll out into a smooth ball
  6. Dust the surface with semolina (this gives THE crispiest base!)
  7. Add your pizza sauce and toppings
  8. Cook for  10 to 12 mins at the highest temperature you can and enjoy!
