Method

  1. Recite Bismillah
  2. Combine flour, salt, sugar, yeast, butter & water to make a sticky dough. We recommend making the dough in a a stand mixer. (You may need more water.)
  3. Then add olive oil & Knead.
  4. Cover with a bag & allow to rise for at least an hour.
  5. Meanwhile prepare sauce by adding olive oil, mixed herbs, red chilli flakes & garlic in a pot. Leave the ingredients to “marry” in the pot for 5 mins. 
  6. Then turn on the heat & add onions. Cook till soft & transparent.
  7. Add in remaining ingredients & cook till thick on low heat for around 30 mins.
  8. Roll out dough to desired size bases.
  9. Preheat oven to 180c.
  10. Pre- bake your base for 5-7 mins. This will result in a base that holds on its own & is crispy on the outside & soft & airy on the inside.
  11. Spread sauce & add toppings. (leftover sauce can be frozen for next time)
  12. When ready to bake preheat oven to 180c
  13. Bake till lightly golden. Enjoy!
