Makes :
2 pizzas

Preparation Time :
40 minutes

Cooking Time :
35 minutes

Preparation Method :

  • Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and add the yeast and salt, making a small well in the top. Mix the water and oil together into the bowl and gradually combine to a sticky dough.
  • Lightly flour the work surface and knead the dough for about 10 - 12 minutes, until it is smooth and elastic.
  • Cover the dough with some lightly oiled clingfilm and leave to rise for about an hour or until it has doubled in size.
  • Knock back the dough by gently kneading for about a minute, then divide into two balls.
  • To roll out the dough, flatten each ball, roll out on a lightly floured work surface, giving a quarter turn between each roll.
  • Preheat the oven to 220°C / 425°F / Gas Mark 7. Place the pizza bases on two baking trays, using a rolling pin to transfer them from the work surface.
  • Bring a small saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the asparagus spears and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Drain and plunge into ice cold water for 2 minutes. Drain well.
  • Divide the pizza sauce between the two pizza bases, spreading almost to the edges.
  • Scatter over the cooked asparagus, red pepper and cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melting and turning golden and the bases are crisp. Serve immediately.
