Mix together the flour and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Crumble the yeast into the well, add 275 ml (approximately 1 cup) of warm water and the honey and mix thoroughly from the center out. Add the olive oil and knead until dough is smooth.

Knead the risen dough briefly and divide into 8 equal portions. On the floured surface, shape each dough portion into a ball and let rise for 10 minutes. Then roll out each ball into a disk (about 1 cm thick) (approximately 1/2 inch thick). Place dough disks on a floured baking sheet.

Bake in preheated oven at at 250°C (fan 220°C, Gas: highest) (approximately 450°F) until crust is golden brown, about 15 minutes. Rinse the basil, shake dry, pluck leaves and finelychop. Drizzle pizzas with walnut oil, garnish with basil and serve.
