140ml water, warm
Prepare 2 baking trays by pouring 1 tablespoon of olive oil on each tray and spreading it with a pastry brush. Brush the inside of a large bowl with olive oil.
To prepare the dough, put the flour, yeast and salt into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the water with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Use the end of a wooden spoon to mix everything together to create a wet dough.
Turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface and work it with your hands for about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic.
Place in the oiled bowl, brush the top with olive oil and cover with cling wrap. Leave to rest at room temperature for 25 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 220°C.
Once rested, turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface and divide it into 2 equal halves. Use your hands to push each one out from the centre to create 2 round discs about 25cm in diameter. Place the pizza bases on the oiled baking trays.
Spread the passata evenly over the top of the bases using the back of a tablespoon.
Sprinkle grated mozzarella on the pizzas and drizzle each one with extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Cook for 10 to 15 minutes.
Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve.
