Basic Pizza Dough.

Basic Pizza Dough.


3/4 cup warm water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon caster sugar
2 cups baker’s flour
2 teaspoons or 1 sachet dry yeast


Combine dry ingredients in large mixing bowl and add oil and water.

Mix to a soft dough

Knead on a floured surface until soft and pliable

Return to the mixing bowl and cover with cling wrap and leave in a warm spot for 30 minutes.  The dough should double in size.

When it has risen, ‘punch’ the dough once to remove air bubbles.

Remove from bowl and knead gently for 1 minute

Roll or push the dough out to desired size, prick randomly with a fork and add favourite toppings.
