This recipe was easier than I thought it would be and turned out great! Paulie and I did a bit of a challenge with our pizza’s which I will post after this. I loved the lightness of the dough and it froze down so well that I am going to double the recipe next time so I have 3 pizzas in the freezer ready to go (I will also freeze the homemade tomato sauce too in 3 portions). This was a fun challenge and I would recommend investing in a square pizza stone, ours was only a tenner and we will have it for year’s, it really does make the base nice and crispy!
Ingredients (makes 2 large pizza’s)
- 300g strong bread flour
- 1 tsp instant yeast
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Put the flour into a large bowl, then stir in the yeast and salt. Make a well, pour in 200ml warm water and the olive oil and bring together with a wooden spoon until you have a soft, fairly wet dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 mins until smooth. Cover with a damp tea towel and set aside in a warm place to rise for an hour.
- Give the dough a quick knead, then split into two balls. On a floured surface, roll out one of the dough balls into a large round or rectangle, about 25cm across pizza base, using a rolling pin. The dough needs to be very thin as it will rise in the oven. Wrap the other half in cling film making sure it is wrapped all over so it doesn’t get freezer burn when you place it in the freezer.
