Ingredients (serves 6):
Makes 12 slices
Method: Pour the warm water into a bowl, sprinkle the yeast on top and leave for 2 minutes. Add a pinch of salt and cover bowl. Put in a warm place for 5 or 6 minutes, until mixture becomes frothy.
Preparation time: 2 1/2 hrs (for 2 pizzas of 30cm)
1 1/4 cup warm water
1 packet yeast
3 1/2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup olive oil
1 pinch salt
Put flour and salt in a large bowl, make a well in the centre, then pour in the yeast. Add the rest of the water and the oil, then mix until all ingredients are combined.
Knead until springy and elastic.
Roll the dough into a ball and put in a greased bowl. Cover bowl with clingfilm and leave in a warm place for 2 hours, to rise.
Divide dough into two. Roll out each half onto a floured surface, until you have the desired thickness.
Make sure pizza base is the same thickness all over by pressing with the flat of your hand and mould it into shape.
Pinch up the edges, so the edge of your pizzas will be slightly raised.
Choose a topping (see other recipes) and cook in a moderately hot oven.
