    Using your hands, knead dough on a floured work surface for 8 minutes or until smooth and elastic. (Alternatively, knead dough using an electric mixer with a dough hook.) Place in a large, lightly oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Set aside in a warm place to prove for 3 hours or until doubled in size.

    Using your fist, knock down dough. Turn out onto a floured work surface, then divide into 8 and form each portion into a ball. Place balls on a large tray and cover loosely with a slightly damp tea towel. Stand in a draught-free place for 2 hours or until doubled in size.

    Place 2 heavy-based oven trays or pizza stones in oven and preheat to 230C. On a lightly floured work surface, using a rolling pin and working with 1 ball of dough at a time, roll out balls to 20cm rounds.

    Place cheeses, salami, tomatoes, capers and basil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine. Divide filling among rounds, placing on one half of each round and leaving a 1cm border. Fold dough over filling, then, using your fingertips, press edges firmly to seal.
