Pizza dough

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 4 people

This recipe makes enough dough for 4 pizzas.

  • 15 gm dried yeast
  • 400 gm strong plain flour
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
01   Combine yeast and 40ml water in a small bowl and stir until yeast dissolves. Add 2 tbsp flour and stir until combined. Cover and stand in a warm place for 30 minutes or until foamy.
02   Place remaining flour in a large bowl, make a well in the centre and add yeast mix, 1½ tsp sea salt and 200ml water. Mix together, then knead on a lightly floured work surface for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Divide into 4 and place on a greased oven tray, brush with oil, cover with a tea towel and stand in a warm place for 2 hours or until doubled in size.
