Ingredients

  • 400
    ml
    white bread flour
  • 10
    ml
    instant yeast
  • 5
    ml
    sugar
  • 2
    ml

  • 15
    ml
    olive oil
  • 175
    ml
    lukewarm water
 

Method

 
Mix the flour, instant yeast, sugar and salt in a mixing bawl. Add the olive oil to the hot water. Add just enough water to the flour mixture to form a soft, manageable dough and knead for about 10-15 minutes until the dough is soft and elastic. Add more flour if the dough is too sticky. Place the dough in a mixing bowl sprayed with non-stick spray. Lightly spray the dough with the non-stick spray or grease with margarine and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise until doubled in volume. Turn the dough out on a floured surface and knock back. Prepare any of the following bases as desired. For a thick base roll the dough out in a circle about 30 cm in diameter. For a thinner base roll the dough into two thinner circles, each about 25- 30 cm in diameter. For mini-pizzas divide the dough into 4-6 pieces and roll out smaller circles, each about 10 cm in diameter. Place the pizza base on a floured baking sheet. Choose any topping and prepare as described in the Pizza topping recipes. (All topping ingredients are enough for the basic pizza crust.)
