Quick Pizza Dough
 

Ingredients:
3 cups 000 flour (plain flour can be used)
1 teaspoon salt
1 sachet dried yeast (approx 7g or 2 teaspoons) 

 1 cup warm water 
3 tablespoons olive oil

Method:
Place the flour, yeast and salt into a large bowl; make a well in the centre.
Add the combined water and oil and mix to a thick paste. (You may need some additional water)


Transfer to a work bench dusted with some additional flour and knead for about 10 min.

Now, if you want to use it immediately it does work just fine.   If you have time, just put the dough in a floured bowl, cover with a tea towel and let it rest for one hour.  Such the dough down, divide it in two or three parts, roll in balls.  Let it rest for 30 min, open in circle, let it rest for more 15 min.  

Roll out dough and top with your favourite toppings.


Bake on a preheated pizza stone at 250°C for 6-8 minutes, until base is crisp and cheese is bubbling and melted. Remove from oven and rest for 5 minutes.

Top it with whatever your imagination conjures up and Mangia que te fa bene!  :-)

    Fresh cut tomatoes with basi and fresh boccocini and a good tomato sauce on a pizza dough baked................ It's amazing as a simple salad too. A simple tomato, boccocini, basil salad with light olive oil. :)
