- 500g/1lb 2oz self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
- 1 tsp salt
- 200ml/7fl oz warm water
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 200g tin chopped tomatoes
- ½ tsp dried mixed herbs
- 50g/1¾oz mature cheddar, grated
- 12 thin slices chorizo
- freshly ground black pepper
Place the flour in a large bowl. Add the salt, warm water and 2 tablespoons oil and bring together to form a soft dough. Knead briefly, then divide the dough into four equal balls.
Dust a clean work surface with flour and use a rolling pin to roll one ball out into a rough 20cm/8in circle. Brush the dough lightly on both sides with some of the remaining oil.
Place a large non-stick frying pan with a heatproof handle over a medium-high heat. Carefully add the dough to the pan and cook for 5 minutes until golden-brown. Flip over and cook for a further 3 minutes, until the dough is cooked through.
Preheat the grill to medium.
Spoon the tomatoes over the dough, leaving a border around the edge, then sprinkle over the herbs. Scatter with the cheese then tear three of the chorizo slices in half and arrange on top. Finish with a good grinding of black pepper.
Grill for 3–4 minutes until the cheese has melted. Repeat to make the remaining pizzas.
