Pizza dough

Perfect pizza dough. Italian classic, thin, crispy and very easy to prepare. It’s perfect every time. Can be prepared in advance and frozen.

It needs some time to rise, so it’s not as quick as we’d like, but it’s delicious. Best when made from italian strong flour, type “00”, but any strong flour will do. Remember to flour your working surface, it will prevent the dough from sticking. We used dried instant yeast, some yeast types may require to activate it in water with some sugar, just check the instruction on packaging. Can be frozen, jest wrap it in a cling film. This recipe will give you 5 – 6 12″ pizza bases. Enjoy!

  • Clean the mixing bowl and put the dough back into it. Cover with paper towels or cling film and leave to rise for 2 hours.
  • When doubled in size, knock it back, and knead again for 2 minutes. You can use the dough now, but we leave it in a bowl for an additional hour to rise again.
