Combine flour, 1 tablespoon sea salt and yeast in a large bowl (I use my KA bowl!)
In a separate bowl (I use a jug!) combine honey and 300ml warm water. Gradually add liquid to dry ingredients and mix with your hands to combine. (I cheat and use a wooden spoon then just the dough hook on my KA on the first click- very low)
Add the oil then mix to combine
Turn the dough onto a floured surface and lightly knead for about 5 minutes or until the dough comes together
Place in a food processor with a dough hook and knead for 2-3 minutes, adding extra water or flour as needed. Bill then says you can knead it all by had for an extra 5 minutes. personally- I use my KA for it all!
Form dough into a ball and place in an oiled bowl. Rub the top of the dough with oil to stop it going crusty
Cover with a damp tea towel and place in a warm, draught free place for 1-2 hours until dough has doubled in size
Turn the dough onto a floured surface and punch down with your fist
Knead lightly, then divide into 4 balls
Place each ball into a small oiled bowl and cover with damp tea towels
Place in a warm, draught-free place for 20-30 minutes until dough has doubled in size again
Roll out each ball on a floured surface to make a 30cm round base
Place each base on a lightly oiled pizza tray before adding pizza toppings
