    Pizza Dough

    This can be made in advance, cut into portions and frozen or chilled.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus 1-2 hours risng
    • Total time: 15 minutes, plus 1-2 hours risng 60 minutes 60 minutes 15 minutes

    Makes: 3 pizzas, enough for 6 people


    • 750g strong organic flour
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • 1 sachet easy-blend yeast
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil


    1. Place the flour, salt and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Using your hands, mix thoroughly before adding enough tepid water to bind it together into a soft but not sticky dough. Turn out on to a clean surface and knead for 5 minutes until supple and smooth. Flatten the dough and make dents in it with your fingers. Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil on to the dough and gently knead it in. Some will squidge out on to the work surface - just knead over it until all is absorbed. This will take 5 minutes.
    2. Return the dough to a clean, large bowl. Lightly coat the dough in a tablespoon of olive oil, cover the bowl with cling film and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in size. It should take 1-2 hours but the rising time will vary according to room temperature. You can even leave it to rise in the fridge for about 8 hours instead. Once it has doubled in size, the dough can be cut into 3 portions, each enough for 2 people, and used immediately or slipped into a plastic bag and chilled for up to 24 hours or frozen until needed.
