How to Make:

  1. For bases, stir yeast and sugar in a bowl with 300ml warm water. Stand for 15 minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface. Place flour in a large bowl and stir in 2 teaspoons salt. Add yeast mixture to flour and mix with your hands to just combine. Place in a mixer with dough hook and knead for 5 minutes. (Or knead with your hands until smooth.) Divide into 6 balls. Place on a lightly oiled tray spaced apart, cover with a clean tea towel and stand in a warm place for 2 hours or until doubled in size.
  2. Preheat oven to 220°C or the woodfired oven to 400°C. Roll each ball out on a lightly floured surface, rolling from the inside to the outer edge, to form a 24cm round. Brush each base with 1 tablespoon garlic oil, then spread with a thin layer of sauce, leaving a 2cm border. Scatter with olives, prosciutto, cheese and tomatoes.
  3. Bake in the oven for 7-10 minutes, or place in the centre of the woodfired oven for 2-3 minutes until cheese has melted and bases are crisp and light golden.
  4. Scatter with basil and drizzle with garlic oil. Slice and serve immediately.
