===Baking in an oven===
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 220 c (425 F - Gas 7)
===Cooking on a pizza stone===
To obtain a nice crispy pizza base, pre-bake the pizza base on a pizza stone under a very hot grill for 2 minutes a side. Then remove and add the toppings and cook until the cheese is bubbling. Watch carefully though as they can quickly burn in the intense heat.
