Pizza dough recipe
7g sachet dry yeast
1 teaspoon caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups plain flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
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.
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.
Use your fist to punch dough down. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth.
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.
