Step 1:

  • To make the basic dough, sift the flour into a large bowl…make a well in the centre, add the salt, yeast, sugar and oil. Pour in the warm water. Bring together slowly with a knife, then as a dough starts to form, tip the contents of the bowl onto a work surface and bring it all together with your hands, incorporating all of the flour…kneading into a smooth ball for about 5 minutes…the dough should be slightly springy and elastic…soft and smooth. Use flour when needed sprinkled ovwer the surface to stop the dough sticking.

  • Step 3:

  • Transfer the soft smooth dough back to the bowl…cover with a tea towel, and leave in a warm room for 45 minutes…it should double in size. Knock the air back out…now, if you are going to freeze, do so now…seal in a sandwich bag, or wrap fully in cling film, and pop it in the freezer…take it out about 6 hours before you need it. If not freezing, then now the dough is ready to use.

  • Step 5:

  • use plenty of flour to roll it into a pizza shaped base…transfer to a pizza baking tray, then cover with your toppings of choice. Bake in the oven at 180 for about 15 minuts, ir until brown and bubbly on top.
