Method

  • 01
  • For pizza dough, combine yeast and 650ml warm water in a bowl and set aside until staring to foam (10-12 minutes). Meanwhile, combine flour and 3 tsp fine sea salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre, add yeast mixture and mix to form a dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface, knead until smooth and elastic (8-10 minutes), place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and stand in a warm place until doubled in size (1-1½ hours). Knock back dough, divide into 4, then set aside again, covered with a damp tea towel, until doubled in size (45 minutes-1 hour).
  • 02
  • Place a pizza stone or heavy-based oven tray in oven and preheat oven to 220C. Roll one piece of dough into a 3mm-thick disc, transfer to pizza stone, scatter with a quarter of the cheeses and top with a quarter of the pancetta and bake until golden and crisp (10-12 minutes). Repeat with remaining pizze, scatter with basil and serve hot.
Note This recipe makes four large pizze.
