Pizza Base

  1. Put the flour, yeast, and salt into a large bowl and blend them together.
  2. Stir in the water, and when everything looks craggy and lumpy, stir in two spoons of oil.
  3. Using your hands gather everything together into a doughy mass.
  4. Knead dough in the bowl for 100 presses.
  5. Invert another the bowl over the top and leave it in a warm place, for the dough to double in size, which will take about an hour. The dough can rest longer if necessary.
  6. Rub some oil around the inside of two baking trays and pre-heat the oven.
  7. Knead the dough for another 100 presses.
  8. Divide the dough in two, gently stretch each piece into a 30cm/12’’circle and lay one onto each of the prepared baking trays.

Tomato and Mozzarella Topping

  1. Slice the tomatoes and mozzarella then spread them over the dough circles.
  2. Cover loosely with a clean tea towel and leave in a warm place for 20 minutes.
  3. Remove the tea towel, drizzle two spoons of oil over each pizza and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes and top with fresh basil as the pizza comes out of the oven.

Makes a great dough and is a family favourite. I don’t need all of the water unless it’s a very hot dry day but since I live in Scotland that is a rare occasion! I usually double the recipe and use 250mls.

Really loved this pizza base. Added my own toppings. I think i left it too thin at the edges as they were very tough to eat, but overall lovely flavout and texture. Thank you

I wasn't impressed with this dough recipe, followed it to the letter, it was very dense and didn't rise much at all, disappointed!

Delicious! I make this pizza dough very weekend for my daughter and I and we both love it. We also prefer it to any of the other pizzas you can buy and cook at home. I used to use the oiled cling film but now I just put the dough on a board and place a large bowl over the top. Works just as well. Thank you for his recipe
