  • ¼ cups lukewarm water
  • 1 x 10 g yeast sachet
  • 240 g cake flour
  • 2 t salt
  • 1 t sugar
  • 4 T extra virgin olive oil
  • For the topping:
  • 3 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 250 g fresh fior di latte cheese, torn into chunks
  • salt, to taste

Pour the lukewarm water into a small bowl, add the yeast and set aside.

Combine the flour, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add the yeast mixture to the dry ingredients, then add the oil. Mix until a dough has formed.

Knead for 5–10 minutes, then place in a well-oiled bowl. Cover and allow to rise for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.

Meanwhile preheat the oven to 180°C. Knock down the risen dough, place on a floured surface and roll out into a circle.

Spread the olive oil and garlic onto the pizza base, then add the cheese. Place the pizza on a baking tray and bake for 20–30 minutes, or until the dough is cooked and the topping is perfectly melted.

Season with salt to taste before serving.
