Easy pizza dough recipe
- 800g plain flour
- 1 satchet dried yeast
- 500ml warm water
- 2 tsp salt
Combine flour, yeast and salt in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Add water and mix well together until combined.
Once mixed together turn onto a floured bench and knead for 5-10 minutes until the dough is smooth and springy.
Return the dough to a clean oiled bowl, cover with plastic film and tea towel, leave in a warm place to double in size which takes approximately 2 hours.
Once the dough has finished rising, turn out onto a floured surface and cut into 4 equal size pieces. Knead each piece into a smooth ball.
Oil a baking tray and place the 4 balls of dough on it. Cover with a piece of oiled cling film and tea towel and leave to rest for 20 mins.
Roll out to desired size and cover with favourite toppings.
Place on oiled baking tray and bake in preheated oven at 220°C for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden.
