Quick Pizza Dough Recipe

By Tim J Fischer

Pizza is one of those foods that when you get a craving for it nothing
else will do. You can always get one delivered, but there is so much
more satisfaction in making your own dough and stretching it, topping
it, and baking it. This recipe makes two great tasting, thin crust bases.

Ingredients (makes 2 pizzas)

• 300g White Flour - 1.5 cups • 200ml Water - 4/5 of a cup • 8g Instant
Dried Yeast - 2 heaped tsp • 8g Sugar - 2 tsp • 6g Sea Salt - 1 heaped
tsp • 15ml Olive oil - 1 tbsp

Technique

1. Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. 2. Pour
in the water and stir just until mixed in. 3. Add the oil and keep stirring
until you have a nice smooth mixture. 4. Cover the bowl and allow the
dough to rest for ten minutes 5. Turn out the dough onto a floured
board or benchtop. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes by squishing
flat, folding in half, squishing flat again and repeating. As you knead,
you should find that the dough loses its stickiness and becomes more
smooth and supple. 6. Split the dough into two equal lumps and shape
each lump into a ball. Sprinkle the dough balls with flour and cover
with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise for one hour. 7. The
dough is now ready to use. Shape each dough ball into a pizza base
by pressing it into shape with your fingertips or rolling out. Place each
base on a floured peel or a pizza tray if preferred, add your favorite
toppings and cook your on a preheated pizza stone!

TIP: If the bases keep springing back when you are shaping them, get
them pressed out half way to their final shape and then leave to relax
for 5 minutes before you finish shaping.
