    • 125g ball mozzarella, torn 
    • 75g grated Cheddar  
    • 2tbsp basil pesto  
    • 75g pitted mixed olives 
    • Handful basil leaves


    • Heat oven to Mark 7/210˚C. Make the dough as per pack instructions, adding 2tbsp of the olive oil; knead for 3 mins, then divide the mixture into three. On a floured surface, roll out two rounds to about 30cm in diameter and put onto two lightly oiled baking trays. (Save the other third to make dough balls.) Leave to rise in a warm place for at least 10 mins.

    • Put the passata in a pan and simmer with the remaining olive oil and herbs for 5-10 mins until slightly reduced and thickened, season well. Divide between the bases, then scatter over the toppings, mozzarella last. Bake for 15-20 mins until the base is crisp.
