  • 1 3/4 cup luke-warm water
  • 1 pkg active dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 5 cups plain flour
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil, divided (plus more for drizzling before baking)
  • Flaky salt 


  1. In a small bowl, stir together water, yeast and sugar. Cover and place in a warm area for 20 minutes.
  2. When the mixture is bubbly, add it to the bowl of a stand-up mixer that is fitted with a dough hook. Add flour, kosher salt, and 1/2 cup olive oil. Start the mixer on low until it’s combined, gradually working up to medium speed for 5-6 minutes.
  3. Remove dough from bowl and place on a floured surface and knead.
  4. Coat a large glass bowl with olive oil. Place the dough in the bowl, cover with cling wrap, and leave in a warm area for about 1 hour or until it doubles in size.
  5. Pour the remaining 1/2 cup olive oil into a baking tray.
  6. Place dough onto the oiled tray and flip so all sides are covered in oil. Press the dough toward the outer edges of the tray, digging your fingers into the dough to form dimples. Place the tray in a warm place to let it rise again for about 1 hour.
  7. Preheat oven to 220 degrees.
  8. Gently press toppings into the dough as required. Sprinkle with a little more olive oil and the flaky salt. Bake for 25-30 minutes and allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.
