  • 1To make the dough, put the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Using the dough hook, mix to combine. Add the oil and water and mix on medium-low speed for 5 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic. (Alternatively, combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the oil and water and mix until the dough comes together, add an extra tablespoon of water if necessary. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.)
  • 2Put the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place for 1 hour or until the dough doubles in size.
  • 3Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and punch down to remove the excess air. Knead the dough into a smooth ball. Divide into three, 8 ¾ oz pieces.
  • 4To make the pizza sauce, put all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until well combined. Transfer to a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Boil for 5 minutes until the sauce thickens. Set aside to cool. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
  • 5To make the topping, remove the casings from the sausages. Tear the sausage meat into small pieces, then flatten.
  • 6To make the pizza, turn the ON/OFF switch to the ON position and PREHEAT the pizza oven for 15 minutes.
  • 7Roll out each piece of pizza dough to form a 9 ½-inch round and place each on a 11 ¾-inch square piece of parchment paper.
  • 8Prick the crusts with a fork or pizza docker.
  • 9Spread 1 teaspoon of oil over each pizza crust. Spread 3 tablespoons of pizza sauce over each crust, then sprinkle each with ½ teaspoon pepper flakes.
  • 10Divide the remaining toppings evenly among the crusts.
  • 11Select the CLASSIC crust setting.
  • 12Transfer one of the pizzas (still on the parchment paper) to the hot pizza stone and close the lid. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • 13Open the lid and quickly slide the parchment paper out carefully. Close the lid and cook for a further 6-7 minutes until browned. Monitor the cooking progress through the viewing window. Topping should be cooked and golden and crust crisp and brown.
  • 14Open the lid carefully with oven mitt and transfer the pizza to a cutting board.
  • 15Repeat with the remaining pizzas.
  • 16Drizzle with extra olive oil, season with salt and pepper and garnish with basil leaves. Slice and serve.
