Pizza Dough
Yeaaaah more pizza! 🌞💛🍕🌞 The weather has been glorious over the weekend and we have been enjoying a spot of outdoor cooking/dining. I've tried and tested many pizza dough recipes over the years and I keep coming back to this one, so easy and never fails. A firm family favourite and we love being creative with our toppings.
  • (makes 5 pizzas)
  • Ingredients:
  • 500 g Type ’00’ flour
  • 320 ml warm water
  • 10 g salt
  • 6 g of dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  1. Mix warm water, yeast and oil. Be careful not to go too warm/hot as that’ll kill the yeast.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the flour with salt.
  3. To knead, I use a Kenwood mixer with the machine on 2/6 and start gradually adding water. Once mixed, I’ll time 4 minutes on the same setting.
  4. If you’re hand kneading, knead for about 10 minutes until the dough is stretchy and velvety.
  5. Set aside covered for 20 minutes.
  6. After that I’ll hand knead it for about another minute to finish it off.
  7. Now you can either cut it up into 165 g dough balls. It’s a good idea to flatten them just a little to make it easier to stretch later. Cover up them up with cling film and a kitchen towel and leave to rest for 2 hours.
  8. Once proved it’s time to stretch your dough into pizzas.
