Ingredients of Napoli Pizza Recipe
Baker's Pizza Dough
375g unbleached bread flour, plus extra for dusting
125g stoneground wholemeal flour
2 teaspoons dried yeast
2 teaspoons caster sugar
2 teaspoons sea salt
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for oiling and brushing

Napoli Pizza Recipe Topping
1/2 cup black olives
1 clove garlic
few drops balsamic vinegar
extra virgin olive oil for brushing, plus extra to serve
1 cup tomato passata
1/2 cup tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup grape tomatoes
1/2 cup basil leaves
1 tablespoon grated parmesan
150g buffalo mozzarella, thickly sliced
chopped flat-leaf parsley to serve

Preparation of Napoli Pizza Recipe
1. Place flours, yeast, sugar and sea salt in a large bowl. Slowly add olive oil and 250ml warm water, mixing with your hands as you go. Place dough on a floured work surface and knead well for 10-15 minutes until dough feels silky and soft, but not sticky. Dust with flour, put in a bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and leave for 1 hour in a warm, draught-free place to double in size.
2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 220°C. Lightly oil 2 large baking trays.
3. Dust work surface and your hands with flour and briefly "knock back" risen dough to push out the extra air, then divide it into two and roll each half into a ball. Leave dough for a few minutes to settle, then press balls flat and, using your fingertips, shape them into pizza bases, working from the middle of the round and pushing out until pastry is about 5mm thick and 30cm wide.
4. Place pizza bases onto prepared baking trays, sparsely cover with toppings (see below) and cook for 10-15 minutes or until edges of bases crisp up and become golden. Makes 2 pizza bases.
5. For napoli pizza topping, preheat oven to 220°C. Remove pits from olives, place olives in a food processor with garlic and vinegar and process to form a paste. Brush 2 prepared pizza bases with olive oil.
6. Spread tomato passata over bases, sprinkle diced and grape tomatoes, basil and parmesan over and top with mozzarella, then spoon a few blobs of olive paste in three or four places on each base. Cook according to the Baker's Pizza Dough recipe, then remove from oven, scatter with parsley, drizzle with olive oil and serve immediately.

  1. Thanks for sharing this recipe it's definitely a really good reward for my brother who got his Food Safety Training last week. But still work on the dough first. I'm not really the cook-type but I'd like to do something special for him.
