200g strong white flour
1 x 7g sachet dried yeast
1 teaspoon salt

Mix the flour, yeast and salt in a large bowl.

When the dough starts to form, tip out from the bowl onto a lightly floured surface and knead together for 5-10 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic.
Lightly grease a large bowl and place the dough inside.
Cover with cling film, leaving to stand for 30 minutes.
Tip out onto a lightly floured surface and split the dough in half.
Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a circular shape about half a cm thick.
Slightly roll the edge of the dough in on itself to create a lip around the edge for the crust.
Oil a baking sheet and place your base on, before adding your toppings.
