Pizza dough recipe

Ingredients

7g sachet dry yeast

1 teaspoon caster sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups plain flour

2 tablespoons olive oil

Method

Step 1

Combine 3/4 cup warm water, yeast, sugar and salt in a jug. Whisk with a fork to dissolve. Cover with plastic wrap. Set aside in a warm place for 5 minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface.

 Step 2

Sift flour into a bowl. Add yeast mixture and oil. Mix to form a soft dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 10 minutes or until elastic. Place in a lightly greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Stand in a warm place for 25 to 30 minutes or until dough has doubled in size.

Step 3

Use your fist to punch dough down. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth.

Notes

It’s a good idea to use a strong flour like doppio zero “oo”, bakers or pizza flour.

This recipe is fine like this however it’s also a good idea to prove the dough in the fridge for 24 hours.
