The pizza situation.
I call it “THE SITUATION” because no matter who you are, or what you do, everyone loves pizza. If you don’t, you actually don’t have a soul. 😉
My pizza base recipe
600g of flour
A pinch of salt
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1.5 teaspoons of yeast
500ml of water (slightly warm)
Mix yeast into water to activate
Add the olive oil to your water and mix, add to the flour and salt….combine
You are not looking for a bread dough “all of it comes together” ball, it will be soft and almost still runny. LEAVE IT to rise. It will almost quadruple in volume.
See the bubbles, be the bubbles 👍
Plop out onto a well floured surface
All you doing here is gathering the dough back onto it self
Don’t overwork it
Place your pizza base, be it rectangle or round onto a floured oven tray or pizza stone. Bake in a oven that’s been preheated to 200 degrees – until it’s almost a tan colour (you effectively bake the base until it’s done, but without burning it)
Add toppings of your choice
Pop back into oven until it’s all yummy and melted!
Easy peasy (credit to Joe for being a brilliant hand model person)
