  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 220ºC/425ºF/gas 7. Place a large baking tray or pizza stone or a large baking tray in the oven to heat up. 

  2. Step 2

    In a pan over a low heat, warm the milk until lukewarm. Pour 50ml of this warmed milk into a jug with the yeast & sugar. Mix this together and wait for a few minutes for bubbles to form from the yeast. 

  3. Step 3

    In a large bowl, sieve together the flour, xanthan gum and salt and make a well in the middle.

  4. Step 4

    In a separate bowl, combine the egg, 3 tablespoons of olive oil and the rest of the milk. Pour this mixture into the well of the dried ingredients together with the yeast mixture. Use a fork to combine.

  5. Step 5

    In a small bowl mix together the bicarbonate of soda and vinegar then knead this into the mixture. 

  6. Step 6

    Once the dough has formed, place it into a lightly oiled bowl and cover loosey with a damp tea towel. Leave the bowl in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size, this should take around an hour.

  7. Step 7

    As your dough is proving, it's time to make the topping.  Heat a splash of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, then add the peeled and crushed garlic. Cook for a few minutes, or until golden. 

  8. Step 8

    When your dough has doubled in size,  divide the dough into four equal-sized pieces on a flour-dusted surface. Use a rolling pin and roll to about 30cm in diameter and a couple of mm thickness. Rotate the dough frequently as you roll to ensure it doesn't stick to your surface.

  9. Step 9

    Place the rolled dough onto the preheated baking tray or pizza stone (you’ll need to do this in batches), then spread over the garlic and butter. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden and crisp.
