240ml water
60ml white wine vinegar
15g dehydrated porcini mushrooms
1 (20-by-36cm) piece focaccia bread
3 tbsps extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for preparing pan and garnishing
340g tinned whole tomatoes with basil
225g fresh Buffalo mozzarella
110g shredded aged mozzarella
18-20 thick pepperoni slices
30g Parmesan cheese, grated
90g fresh basil leaves
4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 230°C/Gas 8.

In a small saucepan, bring 240ml water and white wine vinegar to a simmer. Remove from heat and add mushrooms. Cover and let mushrooms sit, 15 minutes. Strain.

Slice bread horizontally to create two pizzas. Lightly oil a baking tray and place pizzas crust side up. Brush top with three tablespoons of oil.

In a bowl, squeeze tomatoes to break them up slightly. Place on pizza halves. Pull pieces of Buffalo mozzarella from the ball and place on halves. Top with porcini mushrooms, shredded mozzarella, garlic and pepperoni.

Bake until cheese has melted and crust is crispy, about 25 minutes.

Remove pizzas from oven, drizzle with oil, sprinkle with Parmesan and spread with cut basil.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve.
