Prep Time: 30 Mins Cook Time: 25 Mins Serves: 4
3 cups of All Purpose Flour or Very Strong White Flour
7 grams Dry Active Yeast
2 tsp Sugar
½ tsp salt
3 tbsp Oil
¾ to 1 pint Hot Water
Sieve the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Add the oil, then mix well till the oil has combined. Finally, I sieve the flour again.
Slowly add in hot water and knead the dough using a fork to form a soft dough as the water will be hot.
Divide the dough into two balls, leave the dough to rest for 5 minutes covering with a damp kitchen towel
Work each dough piece with your hands until forming a smooth and even ball, then roll out the dough with a rolling pin then, transfer it into a lightly buttered tray and spread it out with your hand to the edge of the tray and put it in the oven for 6 hours, this will ferment the dough.
It will make 14-inch pizzas or four 7-inch pizzas.
Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 5, and bake the pizzas in the oven for 10-12 minutes until the bases are crisp and golden-brown, then flip the base and spread the homemade tomato pizza sauce over each pizza base and top with your favourite toppings and mozzarella cheese.
Bake for further 10-12 minutes until the cheese has melted.
