BASIC PIZZA DOUGH

Easy

Great pizzas start with the best dough - so why not use Italy’s highest rated pizza flour? This makes light dough with a perfect rise. Ideal for Neapolitan-style pizzas.

Ingredients

  • 500g Blue Caputo pizza flour
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 tsp Maldon sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp Active dried yeast
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • pinch Billington's golden caster sugar

Method

  1. Pour the water into a jug and stir in the yeast until it has dissolved. Add the flour to a bowl then stir in the salt.  Add the olive oil and, using a spoon, stir everything together to form a soft dough.
  2. Let it rest for 10 minutes, then tip onto a clean work surface and knead for 7 to 8 minutes until smooth.
  3. Once you’ve kneaded the dough, place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover, and allow to rise for 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours or until the dough doubles in size. 
  4. Preheat the oven to 220°C 
  5. When the dough has risen, knock back and divide it into 3 equal sized balls.
  6. Take one piece and roll it into a round, shaping as you roll, until it measures around 20cm in diameter. Spread with your desired toppings.
  7. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until the crust is done to your liking  – every oven will bake differently, so keep an eye on it
  8. Spread with your desired toppings – we love Cobble Lane PancettaBuffalo Ricotta and fresh basil.
