This has to be a favourite in most people homes. I often add olives and sliced mushrooms when my sons are eating with us but the toppings list is exhaustive.

the topping


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6 and place a large baking tray upside-down on a shelf.
  • To make the dough, sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl.
  • Add the salt and a pinch of pepper, then stir in the oil.
  • Make a well in the centre, then stir in the warm water and mix to a soft dough, drawing the flour in from the side of the bowl a little at a time. Ideally you want to end up with a soft and slightly sticky dough.
  • Put the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for 2 minutes, until smooth and springy.
  • Place a sheet of greaseproof paper on the work surface, then dust with a little flour and place the dough on top of it.
  • Carefully roll the dough out into a 30cm/12in disc, roughly the thickness of about 5 mm.
  • Slide the dough and the paper onto the hot baking tray in the oven.
  • Bake for 3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, pour the passata into a bowl, add the tomato purée, mixed herbs, sea salt and black pepper and mix thoroughly.
  • Remove the dough tray from the oven.
  • Cover the base with the tomato sauce, using the back of a spoon, leaving a small gap around the edges of the dough.
  • Scatter the mozzarella over the tomato sauce, then top with the pepperoni and cheddar.
  • Add any other topping you like at this stage.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until the base has puffed up and is cooked through and the cheese is golden and bubbling.
  • Cut into wedges with a pizza cutter and serve immediately.
