Step 1

Preparation method: Put the flour into a bowl, add yeast and salt and stir it together. Make a hollow in it and poor in warm water — 200 ml and the oil. Stir it again then put the base on a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 min until smooth. Cover with a towel and set aside.
For the sauce: mix together the tomato sauce, basil and crushed garlic. Set aside at room temperature.
Split the dough into 2 pieces and shape 2 balls. Each ball then roll out with rolling pin into rounds 25 sm across. The dough have to be very thin as it will rise in the oven. Put the rounds onto 2 baking sheets.
Heat the oven to 220 C. Put upturned baking tray on the top shelf in the oven.
Put the sauce over the dough, then tomatoes, mozarella and parmesan. Sprinkle some oil, season with salt and pepper.
Put the first pizza on top of the upturned tray. Bake for 8-10 min until crisp. Serve with a little oil and basil leaves if you like it. Do the same with the second pizza.
