- 275g strong bread flour
- 2 tsp dried fast action yeast
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 150 – 175 ml water
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 400g chopped tomatoes
- 1 tbsp sundried tomato paste
- 1 tbsp fresh basil chopped
- Black olives
- 6 slices salami
- 250g block mozzarella
- First make the dough. Measure the flour, yeast, salt, oil and water into a mixing bowl. Mix together using a spoon. Turn out onto a floured work surface. Knead for 5 to 10 minutes until you have a smooth shiny dough. Place in an oiled bowl. Cover with clingfilm and leave to rise for 2 hours or until doubled in size.
- Meanwhile to make the sauce, heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and garlic and fry for 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the sundried tomato paste and basil. Leave to cool.
- Preheat the oven to 200C Fan. Knead the dough, then roll out to a large 30cm circle. Place on a baking sheet or round pizza tray. Spread the sauce over the base.
- Stamp out salami bats and mozzarella ghosts using Halloween cutters. Make spiders out of the black olives.
- Put the olive spiders and salami bats onto the pizza. Bake for 15 minutes until nearly cooked, then add the pizza ghosts and put back into the oven for 4 to 5 minutes until just melted (don’t leave too long or the mozzarella will spread too much ) and the edges of the pizza are golden brown.
