INGREDIENTS

  • 150g Sasko Cake Flour
  • 100g Sasko White Bread Flour
  • 10g sachet instant yeast
  • 1t sugar
  • 1t salt
  • 1 cup luke-warm water
  • Flour for dusting

METHOD

  1. Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Add the water and stir with a fork until a bread dough starts to form, then turn out onto a floured surface and bring together to form a ball.
  3. Knead the dough for 6-8 minutes until it becomes silky and elastic in texture.
  4. Dust a bowl with flour and place the dough inside. Cover with a cloth or cling film and leave to rise for 20-30 minutes or until it has doubled in size.
  5. Preheat the oven to 240°C
  6. Beat the dough back down and divide into 3 smaller balls.
  7. Dust a rolling surface with flour, place the dough balls on the flour, cover with a cloth and allow to rise for a further 10-15 minutes.
  8. Dust the pizza dough with more flour and roll out the pizza shapes.
  9. Dust a baking tray with flour to prevent pizzas from sticking.
  10. Transfer the pizza base to the baking tray, prick with a fork, top with toppings of your choice and bake in the oven for 7-10 minutes or until crisp around the edges and beginning to brown.

TIPS

  1. It is important that you add warm and not hot water to the dry ingredients – if the water is too hot it will damage the yeast and the dough won’t rise.
  2. Kneading the dough is a vital part of the process as it allows the gluten in the flour to develop, resulting in bread that is light rather than dense and dry.
  3. If you don’t want to use the dough straight away then keep it covered with cling film in the fridge until needed (after it has risen and been beaten down).
  4. Before placing your toppings on the pizza, line the base with a tomato paste and season to taste.

This recipe makes ±3 pizza bases
