  1 2/3 cups bread flour (plus a bit for dusting) 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon yeast 6 oz. warm water 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil (and a small amount for greasing) 6 oz. pesto grated sharp cheddar grated mozzarella  


  Combine the flour, salt, and yeast together, then form a well in the centre. Add the water and 1 teaspoon of the olive oil and stir until the mixture holds together. Turn onto a floured surface and knead for 7 - 10 minutes. Put the dough into a bowl greased with olive oil, cover with cling film, and allow to rise in a warm place for 1 hour. Knead the dough again for another minute or so, then form the mixture into 18 even-sized balls. Coat each dough ball in a generous helping of pesto. Place the dough balls into a large cake tin, cover and rise for another hour. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cover the dough balls with the cheddar and mozzarella cheese, and bake for 20-25 minutes.
