This easy pizza dough can be ready to use in around 30 minutes, and it’s made with only a handful of ingredients.
Don’t be scared off by the yeast. Making a yeast dough is not as difficult as you may think, and because this is for pizza, it’s very forgiving. If your dough doesn’t rise perfectly, it doesn’t matter!
This recipe uses instant dried yeast which is easy to find at the supermarket, and you simply keep it in the fridge till you are ready to use it. Make sure you use warm, but not hot water, adding the yeast to the water and giving it a few minutes to ‘wake up’ and start frothing a little.
You can use bread flour, or regular plain flour, or a combination of white and wholemeal flours. Because each type of flour is different you may need to add a little more water if your dough is a little dry.
Making the pizza dough is as easy as combining the ingredients, kneading the dough, and leaving it to rise. The whole process is even easier if you use a mixer with a dough hook, or a bread machine, but it’s still quick and easy to make by hand.
