80 mins
Serves 2

If you have never made your own pizza there is literally no comparison to the ones you get from a takeaway or even from a box! By making your own dough and tomato sauce you are guaranteed a far superior pizza only to be topped if you get a real Italian to make it for you!

 

 

In a large mixing bowl combine the salt and flour and make a well in the centre. Mix the water with the sugar, yeast and oil and whisk until combined. Pour this mixture into the centre of mixing bowl and using a wooden spoon or your hands mix together to form a rough dough.
Turn the dough out on a floured work surface and knead for 10 minutes or until the dough becomes smooth and elastic. Place back in the bowl and cover with cling film. Leave in a warm place to rise for 50 minutes or until it has doubled in size.
Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 250˚C. Punch down the risen dough and divide into 4 small balls or 2 large ones depending how big you want your bases to be. Sprinkle the work surface with a little semolina and roll out each ball as thin as possible.
Spoon on a couple of tablespoons of the tomato sauce. Add on your toppings, as little or as much as you like. Bake each base for 4-5 minutes on the pizza stone sprinkled with a little more semolina and enjoy straight away.

  • Yep but it does add a nice crunch!

  • Up to how long can I leave the dough to proof? Can I safely double the recipe as well?
