Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, 200°C. Line 2 baking trays with nonstick baking paper.

Pour the pizza base mix into a large bowl and add 175ml warm water and the olive oil. Mix to a dough and then knead on a lightly floured surface for 5-10 mins until smooth and springy. Leave to rise in a lightly oiled bowl, covered with clingfilm, in a warm place, for 45 mins, or until doubled in size. Divide the dough in half and roll each out to an oval (about 30x25cm).

Mix the crème fraîche with 40g Parmesan and season with black pepper. Spoon onto the pizza bases and top with the prosciutto, pears and Gorgonzola. Season with black pepper and drizzle with the oil then cook in the oven for 15-20 mins, until golden, risen and melted. Serve immediately, with the balsamic glaze drizzled over.
