"From our Saturday newspaper The Weekend West. Times are estimated and have not included resting times for dough to rise but while this is happening to could be getting all the toppings ready."
To make the dough - put water, yeast and sugar in a small bowl and stir to combine and set aside at room temperature for 10 minutes or until frothy.
Combine flour and salt in a large bowl and make a well in the centre and then pour in first lot of oil and yeast mixture and using you hands, combine into a dough.
Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead with the heel of your hand for 8 to 10 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic but still slightly sticky.
Grease a large bowl with extra olive oil and put dough in bowl and cover with plastic and wrap and set aside for 1 hour or until dough has doubled in size.
Remove plastic wrap from bowl and turn out dough on to a lightly floured surface and punch air from dough to return dough to its original size.
Roll portion into a ball and cover loosely with plastic wrap and leave for 15 minutes or until dough has doubled in size again.
At this point, you can freeze or refrigerate dough for later use.

Lightly dust a 28cm pizza tray with flour and put rolled out pizza base om the tray and then prick centre of pizza all over with a fork.
Preheat oven to 240C.
