    3/4 c  Ground almonds
    1/2 c  Caster (granulated) sugar
      3 dr Almond essence; more or less

  Dough: Put flour and salt in a
  large bowl.  In a small bowl, mix fresh yeast with a little water;
  put in a warm place until frothy. To use dried active yeast, wisk
  with sugar and a little water; leave until frothy. Add yeast liquid
  to flour with remaining water and oil. (To use easy blend yeast, mix
  into flour and salt before adding water and oil.) Mix to soft dough.
  Knead on floured surface for 10 minutes. Put in a greased bowl,
  cover; put in warm place for 45 minutes or until doubled in size.
  Knock back risen dough and knead dough with ground almonds. Oil a
  12-inch pizza tin. Put dough in centre and press out to edges with
  knuckles. Pinch up edges to create a rim.
  Topping: Preheat oven to 425F.  In a bowl, lightly wisk egg whites.
  Stir in ground almonds, caster sugar and almond essence. Spread the
  mixture evenly over pizza base.  Drain cherries, reserving juice.
  Spoon over pizza, reserving a few for decoration. Sprinkle with
  flaked almonds and bake in the oven for 20 minutes until dough is
  crisp and golden. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, heat reserved juice and
  jam until syrupy. Dust cooked pizza with icing sugar and decorate
  with whipped cream and reserved cherries. Serve the sauce separately.
  Serves 4-6
