  • In a medium bowl, combine the warm water (not too hot or you'll kill the yeast), honey and yeast until dissolved.
  • Leave for 5 - 10 minutes unti lthe yeast activates and the mixture develops a layer of froth on the surface.
  • In a large bowl, mix the sea salt and flour and make a well in the center.
  • Add the yeast and olive oil.
  • Mix together , then use your hands until the dough comes together.(I did this step in my kitchenaid.).
  • Tip the dough onoto a lightly floured surface and knead until th edoor is smooth, shiny and elastic (about 5 - 10 minutes) or allow the kitchenaid to do this.
  • If the dough is too sticky or soft, add a little extra flour or if it's too dry and crumbly, add a little water.
  • Shape the dough into a round ball and place in a large, oiled bowl.
  • Cover with a damp cloth for roughly 45 minutes or until the dough doubles in size.
  • Punch down the dough to remove the air and place it on a lightly floured work surface.
  • Divide in 2 and shape each piece into round disks.
  • Place the dough balls on a sheet of parchment.
  • Cover with a light coating of oil and let them rise again, for about 20 minutes.
  • Dough is now ready to add whatever toppings you like and cook.
  • Bake in a 400 degree oven for approximately 10 minutes. Keeping an eye on it until the cheese browns and the crust looks done.
