Making your own pizza base is easier than you think. The great thing about this pizza dough is that it can be made in advance, and even frozen. If cooking on a budget try cheap toppings such as mushrooms, tinned sweetcorn, onions and peppers.

Ingredients

For the dough

For the topping

  • 2 tbsp tomato sauce

  • pizza toppings of your choice

Method

  1. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, semolina and salt. Stir in the dried yeast (or crumble in the fresh yeast). Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and pour in most of the water along with the olive oil. Bring the dough together with your hands or a wooden spoon. As the flour is incorporated, the dough will start to take shape. Add the remaining water if the dough feels tight or hard.

  2. Turn the dough out onto a clean surface and knead for 10 minutes, or until it is smooth and elastic. Cut off a small piece of the dough and stretch part of it as thinly as you can. If you can see the shadow of your fingers through the dough (the light should shine through the dough like a window pane) without it tearing, it is ready to prove.

  3. Knead the cut piece back into the dough and shape the dough into an even ball. Place in an oiled bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and allow to prove in a warm place for 1–1½ hours, or until it has doubled in size (the temperature of your kitchen can affect the timing of this).

  4. When the dough has risen, take it out of the bowl and knock the air out. Divide the dough into two equal portions, and shape each portion into a ball. Cover with a damp cloth and allow to prove again for about 15 minutes.

  5. Place a pizza stone or an upturned baking tray into the oven and preheat to its highest setting.

  6. Dust the work surface liberally with semolina. Roll out one piece of the dough to form a circle that will fit on your pizza stone or baking tray.

  7. Transfer the pizza base onto a plastic chopping board (or another upturned baking tray) dusted with semolina. The tray will be used to slide the pizza base directly onto the pizza stone.

  8. Cover the surface with half of the tomato sauce and toppings of your choice.

  9. When ready to bake, slide the pizza directly onto the pizza stone and cook for 8–10 minutes, or until the base is golden-brown and the toppings are bubbling. Repeat with the remaining dough, tomato sauce and toppings.

I think they call it spamming, where you just copy some one else comment. Bloody annoying.

Ever since I was a little girl, Pizza has always had a special place in my heart. Among the number of food pizza is my favourite food because it tastes and smells fabulous. The pizza itself looks so yummy, crispy and so cheesy.
