Quick Pizza Dough

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

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 with the ball of your hands.
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!  :-)
By the way, what is your favorite Pizza Topping?

    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. :)
