  1. Tip the flour, yeast, salt and sugar into a bowl and mix to combine.

  2. Add the olive oil and 175ml water then mix to a soft dough.

  3. Tip out onto a floured work surface and knead for a few minutes until smooth. Divide in half, then form into a heart shape. Using a rolling pin, roll the heart shape to about 5mm thick, stretching the sides out with your hands to help create the heart shape.

  4. Place onto a sheet of parchment or greaseproof paper and repeat with the other piece of dough.

  5. Spoon the sauce over the pizza dough leaving a 2cm border around the edge. Scatter the mozzarella and cheddar over the top then lay the chorizo on top, following the heart shape.

  6. Set aside to rest while you preheat the oven to its highest setting and place 2 upturned oven trays on the racks. This will give the dough time to rise – so anything from 15 minutes to 1 hour will be fine.

  7. Place a tray under the sheet of paper and slide the pizzas, one at a time, onto the hot oven trays in the oven, then bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.

  8. Remove and grind some black pepper over the top before serving.
