How to make a homemade pizza dough. The final recipe.
Individual pizza ingredients:
175 g of white flour for bread, medium-hard high or high
100 ml of water
1 tsp of baker’s yeast
1 tsp salt
Half a tsp of sugar (sugar cane if better)
1 tbsp of oil
Put all ingredients in a large bowl and mix them, first with a wooden spoon as the mixture will be very sticky, and when the dough gets some consistency, use your hands. Make a ball with the dough when it is more manageable, and knead well for 3 or 4 minutes so that all the ingredients are well blended.
Cleaned the bowl a little, put the ball inside and cover the bowl with a cloth. Let it stand at room temperature for 1 hour.
After this time, we will see that the ball has doubled in size, and it is much more spongy and elastic. It’s time to spread it with a rolling pin or a glass bottle (do not put flour on the counter, as it does not stick). Give it any shape you want, and top it with whatever ingredients you like (or inside if you are thinking of a pizza calzone). Then, bake at 180-200ºC (356-392 ºF) until golden brown.
It’s a real pizza dough that is very easy to prepare and with assured results. The flour must be carefully chosen, it is the only secret.
