Recipe for the dough (makes 4 pizzas)
375g strong bread flour
3g dried yeast (I use a fast action one that comes in 7g sachets...just use half)
225ml warm water
A glug of olive oil!
In a large bowl mix together all the dry ingredients with a spoon
Add the liquid in 2 goes, mix with the spoon initially, then if needed use your hands to combine into a soft dough.
Turn the dough into a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes by hand. Put the kneaded dough back into a large bowl and cover with cling film. Leave in a warm place for 45 minutes to double in size.
Preheat the oven to 220C and place a baking sheet into the oven.
Knock the dough back down using your fingers and divide into 4 balls.
Roll each base out on a floured surface, you will find that it will keep its shape better if you turn it regularly.
Prepare your choosen toppings. For the tomato sauce I use 2tbsp of tomato purée water down with 2tbsp of water.
Using oven gloves take out the baking sheet, shake some flour onto the sheet and place a pizza base onto it. Load up with your toppings and bake for 10-12 minutes or until crispy.
Repeat as necessary!!
Enjoy your weekends everyone!
