200 g Strong white flour
4 g Dried yeast
4 g Salt
20 g Olive oil
128 g Warm Water


This is an easy recipe which can be started in the morning or even the evening before,or if you are in a rush some of the resting time can be omitted. This is best done in a food mixer with a dough hook ie Kenwood chef or Kitchenaid.

Place the flour and salt in the bowl, add the olive oil and water and mix until everything is combined.

Leave to rest covered for about 1 hour.

Add the yeast and mix for about 10 minutes on the slowest speed, turn the speed up a bit for a further 5 minutes.

Leave to rest in a warm place for about 20 minutes, remove from the bowl and place on a flowered work surface, flatten and fold in on itself, leave for another 20 minutes and then place in the fridge covered until needed.

About half an hour before needed remove from the fridge and leave in a warm place to come back to temperature.

Preheat oven to 220c

Remove from the bowl, flatten and roll out into a disc shape about 300mm, place on your pizza tray,

Leave to stand for a few minutes,restretch if it has shrunk a bit, turn over the outside edge, about 10mm to give you a lip.

Place your precooked toppings on the top.

Place in the oven and bake for approx 18 to 20 mins



If you are in a hurry, you can omit the rest before adding the yeast, you can also omit placing in thefridge, but you must give the dough time to rise. The end result will not be as good but still better than any bought pizza.
