2. Working on a floured surface and using your fingers, press and stretch the Pizza Dough out to a 25 cm (10-inch) round. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured pizza round trays.
3. Spread tomato sauce evenly over crust, leaving a 2,5 cm (1-inch) border. Top with the mozzarella cheese, tomatoes slices, basil leaves and a drizzle of the extra-virgin olive oil.
4. Turn the oven to broil for 5 minutes, then return it to 260°C (500° F). Bake until the bottom is lightly charred and the toppings are bubbling, about 6 minutes for a chewier crust and 8 minutes for a crispier one. Avoid opening the oven door during baking.
