Step 1

If you are using a bread maker to make the pizza dough, place all of the dough ingredients into the bread maker and use the basic dough setting. It will take approximately 2 hours to knead and rise. To make the dough by hand, mix the dry ingredients together and then add wet ingredients to form a rough dough. Knead for 20 minutes, or until a smooth, elastic dough is formed. Cover with plastic wrap and leave to rise in a warm place for around one hour, or until the dough has doubled in size. Knock back and knead for 2 minutes until the dough feels tight again. Divide into portions for your pizzas – it will make 2 large pizzas or around 12 mini pizzas.

Step 2

To make the pizzas, pre-heat the oven to 200°C. Finely chop the onion and grate the mozzarella if necessary. Roll out each portion of dough and lay on a lightly oiled tray and top with passata, onion and cheese. Leave to rise for a few minutes (or longer if you prefer a thicker pizza base), place on a baking tray and cook for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Serve with smoked salmon, capers and a dollop of sour cream and enjoy!
