Homemade pizza dough

DSC05354

I bet homemade pizza is the best. Its fresh, toppings of your choice and definitely much lighter than store bought….you really can finish the full pizza and yet can have space for that one more slice 🙂 Ofcourse any food has to be eaten in moderation ,so do not stuff yourself. I do have post on my blog already on pizza made with whole wheat pizza and this one is with all purpose flour (maida). To view whole wheat pizza recipe Click Here

I am quiet exicted and hooked to Paul Hollywood’s Bread book .Its been gifted by my brother and this is the second recipe that I have tried. First one was Satsuma dark chocolate Brioche. I really can’t describe how yum it was! It just got over in a second.

Ingredients (adapted from Paul Hollywood’s Bread book)

All purpose flour 250g
Salt 5g
Dried yeast 5g
Olive oil 2 tbsp
Water 180ml
Oregano powder 1 tbsp (not in book,optional)

Method

Add all ingredients except water. Mix them well.
Knead adding water little by little. If you feel you need more water you can use it.But make sure it isn’t too much.
Knead it for 5-10 minutes. Press your finger in and if your finger print bounces right back then it’s ready.
Rest it for atleast an hour until it doubles up in volume.
In the meanwhile you can keep your favourite toppings and sauce ready.
Punch the dough and lightly knead once. Make three equal size balls.
Preheat the oven to the maximum temperature in your oven.Mine was 250 deg C.
Roll them thin and spread the toppings (sauce,cheese,toppings,more cheese).
Place pizza in hot oven for about 10 minutes and your pizza is ready.
Garnish with oregano, chilli flakes and enjoy.
