  • 1 ounce fresh yeast
  • 1 teaspoon white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup warm water (95-105°F)
  • 3 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • ½ cup tomato sauce or tomato passata
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 2-4 medium cherry or plum tomatoes , sliced
  • 3 ounces ham, sliced (preferably prosciutto, serrano, or country ham)
  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves


  • In a medium bowl, combine yeast, sugar, and warm water. Add 1 tablespoon flour, stir, and set aside for 30 minutes.
  • Sift the flour into a large bowl and add 3 tablespoons olive oil and the salt. Add the yeast liquid and mix into a soft, elastic dough. Knead for 5 minutes, until smooth. Cover the dough tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight (the dough can be refrigerated for up to 72 hours).
  • When ready to make the pizza, transfer the dough to a floured work surface. With floured hands, form the dough into a ball. Knead the dough by rolling it backwards and forwards, using your hands to stretch, pull, and push the dough. Keep kneading for 10 minutes, then cover with a towel and let sit to rise for 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place in the oven to heat up.
  • When the dough has risen, roll it into a 10-inch diameter circle, around ¼-inch thick, and transfer to the baking sheet. Spread the tomato sauce over the pizza crust, dot with mozzarella, and top with tomatoes and ham slices.
  • Bake the pizza for 10 minutes, until the base is crisp and golden-brown around the edges and the mozzarella has melted.
  • Remove from the oven, scatter with fresh basil leaves, and serve.
