Mix the flour, yeast and salt. Pour the water, oil and butter into flour and mix with your hands until incorporated. (the water should not be too hot.)
Mix well and thoroughly until an easily manageable dough is formed.
If the dough is still ‘wet’ add another tablespoon of flour. (If the dough sticks to your fingers, add more flour)
If you feel your dough is too ‘dry’, just add a little more hot water.
Start kneading with both hands for a few minutes.
Cover in cling wrap and leave to rise for 20 minutes.
HINT: If you preheated your oven for your pizzas, put the mixing bowl on top of the oven for extra heat. This will make the yeast react quicker.
After 20 minutes, give the dough another bash, and leave for another 20 minutes.
Now your dough is ready to be used; knead one more time, and roll or push onto your oven pan or oven-safe pizza pan.
Add the desired topping.
