Pizza Dough Recipe

01
Oct

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 Cups Warm Water
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 2 tsp Dry Yeast
  • 5 Cups High Grade Flour, plus extra for kneading
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Salt

METHOD

  1. Place water and sugar in a large mixing bowl and stir to dissolve.
  2. Sprinkle yeast over the top and allow to stand in a warm place for 10 minutes.
  3. Mix flour and salt together in a separate bowl, make a well and add the yeast mixture and oil. Combine and work to form a soft dough.
  4. Knead on a lightly floured surface (use as minimal flour as possible for best results).
  5. Transfer dough to a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a clean tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in size - approximately 30 - 40 minutes.
  6. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, roll into a log shape and cut into 4 equal pieces. Roll into balls and leave to rise in a warm place for a further 15 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 220°C, and heat the pizza stone from cold in the cold oven. Cut baking paper to fit your pizza stone.
  8. Place the raw pizza dough onto the floured baking paper on the bench and roll out to form your pizza base.
  9. Add your favourite pizza toppings, and then slide the baking paper onto your preheated pizza stone.
  10. Bake until base is golden and crispy for approximately 10 - 15 minutes.
