MAKING BY HAND
Mix the dough as directed on the pack reducing the water to 310ml and adding either the extra oil or Pesto.
Add olives and/or herbs into the dough or substitute Pesto for olive oil if desired.
Line an 8″ – 9″ (20 – 23 cm) cake tin with a little oil and add the tomato slices, olives, onion, mushroom or left overs from the fridge making a symmetrical pattern then pop the dough on the top.
Cover with an oiled plastic sheet or damp tea towel and place in warm place for 25 – 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 230°c (450°f) gas mark 8 on a lower shelf for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Tip out the loaf and put it back in the tin – upside down/tomato side up then return to the oven for a further 10 – 15 minutes approx. until the dough around the tomato is completely baked.
