Let's Cook with Meg and Ted

Relatively quick pizza dough

1 tablespoon (14g)dried yeast
0.5 teaspoonsugar
0.5 cupwarm water
1.5 cupsplain flour
2 tablespoonsolive oil

Combine yeast and sugar in a small bowl, stir in water, stand in a warm place for about 10 minutes or until frothy.

Sift flour into medium bowl, stir in yeast mixture and oil. Mix to a firm dough. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface, knead about 10 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic.

Place dough in oiled bowl, cover, stand in a warm place for about 30 minutes or until doubled in size. Turn onto floured surface, knead until smooth.

Boom! You're done.

This makes 2 thin pizza bases

It's a bit tricky getting a thin, uncooked pizza base, with toppings on it, from the plate on which you constructed it onto a very hot pizza tile. I haven't tried this yet but I read a tip suggesting that you put a piece of 'parchment paper' (I guess this is like waxed paper/Gladbake) under the pizza before you make it, then you can pick it up with the paper and easily slide it off onto the tile.

For some ideas about what to put on your pizza, try this.
