      Knead by hand or use a machine until the dough comes together. Add the salt now and knead further.
    3. 3
      Roll into a ball and let it rise in a warm area of the kitchen.

      Chop the tomatoes and mozzarella into little pieces and mix together. Add thorn pieces of basil, a drizzle of olive oil and season.
    5. 5

      Heat oven to 200 degrees c or 400 degreec f.
    7. 7
      Cut the dough into 24 pieces and flatten with the palm of your hand or a rolling pin to form a circle about 6 inches across.
