I am obsessed with making homemade pizza at our house and this homemade pizza dough is better than any store bought kind! It's so easy to make and you can add any topping to make your perfect pizza! Enjoy! X
Ingredients Large pinch of caster sugar
250ml lukewarm water
2 tsp dried yeast
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 1/3 cups of plain flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
Combine sugar and half of water (1/2 cup) in a bowl. Sprinkle yeast over top and set aside for 7 minutes or until foamy.
Stir in oil and remaining water then add flour and salt.
Use your hands to mix in to a coarse dough and then turn out on to lightly floured work surface.
Knead for 8 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic. (I timed it)
Transfer dough to lightly oiled large bowl, turning to coat in oil. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and set aside in warm place for 1 hour (dough should double in size)
Knock back dough with one punch to expel air then turn out on to lightly floured work surface again. Divide in to about 3 portions (shape into ball). Using one ball at a time, roll out into desired shape with rolling pin. We made ours into rectangular shapes.
Transfer to lightly oiled baking trays. Top with your favourite ingredients and bake for 12-15mins at 220 C until dough is golden.
You can freeze pizza dough in balls for up to one month in airtight freezer bags.
Knead with one palm on the edge of your dough and with your other palm push the dough out and back in to get that lovely elasticity
