For the sauce:

  • Large pinch dried oregano *
  • Pinch sugar

For the dough:

  • 400ml lukewarm water

  • 1 tsp caster sugar

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 7g sachet quick yeast *

  • 500g white bread flour *

  • ½ tsp salt
* Available at Holland & Barrett


Step 1
Pour 400ml lukewarm water into a jug. Add the sugar, oil and yeast and stir to mix. Set aside for a few minutes for the yeast to get nice and bubbly. Sift the flour and salt together into a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Gradually add the liquid, bringing the dough together with your hand.

Step 2
Transfer to a floured work surface and knead the dough for 5 minutes until springy and soft. Shape into a ball and put back in the bowl. Cover with a damp tea towel and leave in a warm place for 1 hour to rise.

Step 3
Heat the oven to 200ºC/180ºC fan/gas mark 6. Remove the outer layers of papery skin from the garlic heads and then place whole in a square of foil and drizzle with oil. Wrap up and bake for 45 minutes or until soft. Set aside to cool.

Step 4
To make the sauce, heat the oil in a pan, add the onion and cook for 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, oregano, sugar and some seasoning and simmer for 20 minutes until thickened.

Step 5
Add the sliced potatoes to a large pan of bubbling water and cook for 8-10 minutes until tender, making sure they are cooked through. Drain.

Step 6
Turn the oven up to 240ºC/220ºC fan/gas mark 8. Knock the pizza dough back and divide into 6 shape into thin rounds on oiled trays to make pizza bases. Top with the tomato sauce and potato slices then squeeze the garlic from their skins, mash a little and dot around the pizzas. Add the olives. Drizzle with a little oil and pop in the oven for 10-12 minutes until the dough is risen and golden. Garnish with basil and serve.
