    Default Pizza Dough

    Pizza Dough

    400 grams strong white flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 1/4 teaspoons fast action dried yeast
    1 teaspoon caster sugar
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    200ml water

    To Make by Hand:

    1. Put the flour into a large bowl then stir in the salt, sugar and yeast. Add the oil then gradually mix in enough warm water to make a soft dough.

    2. Knead well on a lightly floured surface for 5 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic. Put the dough back in to the bowl, cover loosely with oiled cling film and leave in a warm place to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

    3. Tip the dough out on to a lightly floured surface, knead well then cut into 4 pieces. Roll each piece into a roughly shaped circle about 20 cm (8 inches) in diameter and transfer to 2 large greased baking sheets. (I used 2 pizza trays that you can find at any supermarket I think they are made by whiltshere).

    To make with a breadmaker:

    1. Lift the tin out of the bread machine, fit the kneader blade then add the measured cold water and the oil. Spoon in the flour then add the salt and sugar. Make a slight dip in the centre of the flour and sprinkle in the yeast.



    2. Insert the tin into the bread machine. Shut the lid and set to dough or pizza dough. Press start.

    3. At the end of the programme, lift the tin out of the machine, tip the dough out on to a lightly floured surface and continue as Step 3 "To Make by Hand"

    Notes: I top with basciola pasta sauce. I normally add about 1 tablespoon of garlic to the sauce (enough for two pizzas), which is about half a jar. But we do like garlic I then top with baby spinach leaves, black pitted kalamata olives, chunks of pancetta (I get the delicatessen to cut 1 cm slices so I can cut up in chunks) and a half half combo of mozzarella and grated cheddar or bocconcini if I'm feeling spesh.

    Enjoy

    Sounds delish and you're so good making your own pizza base! I use leb bread, which is as adventurous as I get!
    i actually went to a pizza party on the weekend, and they put pizza sauce (I use tomato sauce, sweeter) then cheese, then topping, then cheese again (not so much) and then some more sauce! Was really good!! xo

    LOL I can just imagine I start my own delivery service

    I've even made it vegetarian as well with "not bacon" and its brilliant. And our friends made it with broccoli and fetta and pumpkin and pinenuts and pesto. They said it was good

    Well I made pizza last night and it was not to bad at all, the base was perfecto +++++ and was yummy, but I did some eggplant to put on it and I think/know I over oiled it, with that and the sundried tomato's = to much oil so even though it tasted good the oil got to me so next time ( which will be soon ) I will make extra effort to use less oil on the eggplant etc... the kids loved theres and they had cheese and bacon with BBQ sauce, I am starting to beleive that less is more with pizza I love cafe style pizza and i think its because they dont overload the pizza with to much topping so that is another thing I am going to watch next time.

    Thanks agian Cailin was well worth the muscles I developed while kneading the dough WOAH that was hard work LMAO
