The ingredients for 4 pizzas dough

  • flour 1kg
  • warm water 1/2 glass
  • yeast beer 50 g or 1 dried yeast
  • salt 15-20 g

Preparation of pizza dough

  • Dissolve the yeast in 1/2 glass of warm water
  • then mix it with the flour. Add salt.
  • Keep mixing all the ingredients together for 5 minutes.
  • Knead well the dough and make one big ball of dough and let it rise in a bowl for 4 hours covered with a kitchen cloth.
  • Tip: In order to help it to rise at perfection, you need a room temperature from 24- 30 degree. Otherwise the yeast won’t have any effect on the rising. In my case, I left the dough in front a radiator to stimulate the rising.
  • When risen, cut the dough in 4 parts like 4 balls as picture shows.
  • Roll the dough out spreading each ball.

  • Tip: To avoid the dough sticking to the rolling pin or to the plain surface, spread some flour on the working surface.
  • Bake each pizza for 15 minutes at 200 °C.

Notes: some advices to make the dough at its best 

  1. I recommend to roll out each one from 0.4 to 0.8 cm.
  2. I suggest to prepare the dough in advance. If you want to use it another time, you can freeze the dough in your freezer.
  3. Remember to defrost it in the fridge in advance (the morning for the evening)

I love preparing dough at home at least once a week, because I know that it is made with natural ingredients.

Hope you will enjoy baking pizza at home as much I do.
