{How to} make the Perfect Pizza Dough?

pizza dough 03

If you like pizza like me, you’ll love this post. And perhaps, you’ll love this pizza that I’ve made earlier. Yes, it’s about the perfect pizza making. In fact, it is one of the most easiest way to make it, and most of all, I can pretty much guarantee that you can make a good perfect crispy pizza crust! And from then on, you can just simply add your favourite toppings! Ever since IK bought me a bread making as my Valentine’s gift, I swore to myself that I have to make a HOME MADE Pizza, and yes.. finally I’ve managed to get it done! It’s awesome, soft, fresh and tasty! As a personal preference, choosing good flour makes a huge impact to the dough, I particularly love using White wings flour because it is really soft, nicely texture, sifted and no artificial bleaching. Recently, they have introduced a new “PURER” flour range, which is always “sifted” 3 times before it gets to the market stores – HOW AWESOME IS THAT!

Best of all, you can make a lot and store it. The next post will be about how to store your pizza dough! But for now, let’s begin this easy project!

You’ll need (Makes 2 portions):

  • 290ml lukewarm water (around 30°C)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoons caster sugar
  • 450 grams plain flour (I use White wings, just because they have the “purer” range, which definitely give the flour a better texture and taste!
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil, plus extra for oiling
  • 7 grams dried instant yeast

How to?

Using a Bread Machine:

  1. Add all the ingredients into the bread machine following the order, and follow the instruction of the manual.
  2. Once completed, remove the dough from the bread maker and divides into 2 portions. Start rolling out the dough until you make a 25mm round circle.
  3. Spray the pizza pan and place the dough on top.
  4. Add your favorite toppings.
  5. For all pizzas, preheat oven to 200°C

Without using a Bread machine:

  1. Place water in a jug. Stir in yeast, salt and sugar and leave in a warm place for 10 mins, until foamy.
  2. Place flour in a large bowl and make a well in the centre.
  3. Add oil and yeast mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until combined.
  4. Gather dough together and knead on a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes.
  5. Transfer to a large, lightly oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and stand in a warm place for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until doubled in volume.
  6. Punch the dough to release the air, then divide and roll out as needed for the recipe.
  7. Place on lightly oiled oven trays, then add toppings.
  8. For all pizzas, preheat oven to 200°C
