Put the flour into a mixing bowl and make a well in the centre. Put the salt, yeast, oil and water into the well. Mix everything together to a soft dough. If the dough is too sticky add a little more flour. Knead the dough for 5-10 minutes until soft and elastic. Cover and set aside to rise while you make the filling.

Prepare the topping ingredients.
Shape the dough into one large or two small pizzas and set on the oiled baking tray. Spoon on the tomato filling spreading it right to the edge.
Arrange the topping ingredients. Season with salt and ground black pepper. Drizzle over extra oil. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes until the edges are golden brown.
