Here is our Pizza Dough Recipe that works! We use this dough recipe with great success.
(Makes 6ish 25cm pizzas) Roll or hand stretch dough out to approximately 3mm thick. We hand stretch but it is up to you as you may want to just use a roller. Hand stretched dough has more of a traditional look and texture and is preferred by many. Give it a go!
4 cups high-grade flour (many options and many types so experiment) Tipo 00 flour is Italy’s favourite and ours too! 00 flour when stretched stays stretched and doesn’t spring back like standard hard flours.
2 teaspoon dry yeast ( bread makers yeast a MUST) try different brands as they give different results. ALWAYS CHECK EXPIRY
1 or 2 teaspoons of salt. The more salt the stronger/harder the flour will end up.
1 & 1/2 to 2/3 cups warm water. You can adjust this by teaspoon amounts to suit your flour brand and type.
1 or 2 tablespoons good quality olive oil
Dough made in the same day can be frozen and used at a later stage.
To make this pizza dough recipe in the bread maker simply add ingredients, set machine to dough setting and wait until dough has risen. Adjusting mixture to suit you is recommended but always have this recipe as a back up.
Good luck! Have fun from the team at Authentic Oven.
