DSC_3521Pizza Crust

15 oz flour (white or whole wheat)

3 teaspoons dry yeast

3 teaspoons sugar

2 teaspoons salt

1  tablespoon olive oil

9 oz lukewarm water


Here’s How:

Place flour into a large mixing bowl and make a well in the center.

Add yeast, sugar, salt, olive oil and water and stir until combined.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 to 10 minutes or until a smooth ball forms.

Place dough ball into a lightly oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap or a clean dish cloth.  Set aside in a warm draft free place for 30 minutes or until dough has doubled in size. (I put mine in an unheated oven)

Turn dough out on a floured surface and gently punch the dough down to remove the excess air, lightly knead.

Divide dough as required.
