  1. Put the yeast in a bowl, with the sugar and cover with the warm water.
  2. Leave this to the side for 5 minutes.
  3. In a bowl (or even better, a mixer or bread maker), add the flour, yeast and sugar solution, salt and olive oil.
  4. Mix together to form a soft dough.
  5. If doing by hand turn the bread out onto a floured surface, then with a firm fist, knead the bread, for 10 minutes.
  6. Place the dough in a large clean mixing bowl, which has had a dribble of oil wiped over it.
  7. Cover with some oiled cling film and leave in a warm place such as an airing cupboard or near a warm cooker for 1 hour.
  8. When you come back to it, the dough will have doubled in size.
  9. Remove the cling film and stick your fist into the dough. It will knock all the air out of it.
  10. Knock the dough around for a minute or until it has deflated. It is now ready to shape.
  11. Heat an oven to 200C.
  12. Cut the dough into 4 then roll out each piece into a flat thin round pizza base.
  13. Prick the pizza all over with a fork. This prevents it puffing up too much and burning while it is cooking.
  14. Top each pizza with 2 tablespoons of tomato sauce, some onions rings, pear slices, some Gorgonzola, 1 tablespoon of walnuts.
  15. Lay the pizzas on baking trays and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes. You want to base to be golden and crispy and the cheese to be melted and gooey.
  16. When they have finished cook top with a handful of rocket and a drizzle of olive oil and serve.
