Easy Fool Proof Pizza Dough
I used to feel daunted making my own pizza dough but through trial and error I’ve found this recipe to be super easy to make a great pizza dough. You can use all purpose flour or bread flour I used a whole grain organic flour it has a more earthy flavor.
2 cups flour, a few spoonfuls more or up to 1/3 more is possible
1 packet instant yeast
1 1/2 tsp sugar
3/4 tsp salt
2 tbs olive oil
3/4 cup warm water
In a bowl add 1 cup of the flour then add the yeast, sugar, salt olive oil and warm water (just lukewarm is fine not hot it could kill the yeast). Stir well then gradually add the 2nd cup of flour until it forms a dough and comes away from the sides of the bowl. Take another bowl and brush the inside with olive oil and place the dough in the bowl cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 mins in a warm place. After 30 mins it will have risen remove the dough deflate it a bit and knead 3-5 times then stretch it with your hands to form a circle or use a rolling pin, on a lightly floured surface.
