Recipe time!

Here is my pizza dough recipe, for those of you who don't already have it. It makes an awesome pizza. Second only to Capri Pizza (in Nerang), in my humble opinion! Make it and let me know what you think.


Makes 4 x 30cm bases

2 x 7g (1 tablesppon) dry yeast
2 teaspoons caster sugar
1 teaspoon salt
5 cups plain flour (I buy the flour especially for pizza dough - Anchor brand)
1/2 cup olive oil

1. Combine yeast, sugar, salt and 1 1/2 cups warm water in a bowl. Cover and stand in a warm place for 20mins or until mixture is foamy.

2. Place flour and oil in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Make a well in the centre. Add yeast mixture. Mix until dough comes together. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 to 7 minutes, adding more flour if necessary, or until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a large, oiled bowl. Cover. Set aside in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

3. Using your fist, punch down centre of dough. Knead for 20 to 30 seconds or until smooth. Divide dough into quarters. Roll out to form four 30cm round pizza bases. Place bases on greased baking trays with your choice of topping and cook for approx 20mins in a 190 degree oven.

NB. Pizza dough can be frozen. Wrap portions in glad wrap and freeze for up to 6 months. Thaw in the fridge, then bring to room temperature before rolling out.
