Place the yeast, water and honey in a small bowl and mix to combine. Allow the yeast to activate in a warm place for 5 minutes until bubbles appear on the surface.
Place the flour, salt and olive oil in a large bowl and add the yeast mixture. Mix together well to form a dough.
Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic.
Divide in half and lightly oil the surface of the dough.
Place a cover over the dough and allow to rise a warm place for 30 - 60 minutes until the dough has doubled in size.
Pre-heat the oven to 250ºC fan bake.
Press the dough out on a slightly oiled pizza tray.
Spread the pesto around the base and then sprinkle on smoked ham and walnuts.
Dot mozzarella around the pizza and season with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.
