In This Recipe
  1. To make the pizza dough: Mix the flours, sugar, salt and yeast in a bowl. Add the olive oil and 150ml of the warm water. Mix to form a dough (add a little more water if the dough is dry). Knead the dough until smooth and elastic. Place the dough back in the bowl, cover and leave in a warm place for about an hour to rise.
  2. To make the sauce: heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for a minute. Add the remaining ingredients. Stir and leave to simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until the sauce has thickened. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Preheat your oven to 200°C and grease two large baking trays. Dust your work surface with flour and halve the dough. Roll each piece of dough out as thinly as you can into a rectangle and pop each base onto a tray.
  4. Spread the cooled tomato sauce over the bases. Top with grated cheese and your favourite toppings. Finish with a sprinkling of Italian herbs.
  5. Pop the pizzas in the oven for 15 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling and the base is cooked through. Slice and serve immediately.
