Pizza dough can require some time but fresh dough always tastes better. Got this out of an Italian cookbook from Europe.

makes 1 pizza

Ingredients

1/2 oz
dried yeast
1 tsp
sugar
9 fl
ounces of hand hot water
12 oz
white bread flour
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
olive oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix yeast and sugar with 2fl ounces of the water. Leave the mixture in a warm place for 15 minutes until frothy.
2
In a large bowl, mix the flour and salt, then make a well in the center. Add the oil, yeast mixture and remaining water. Using a spoon, mix together to form a smooth dough.
3
Turn the dough out onto a floured counter and knead for 4-5 minutes until smooth.
4
Return the dough to the bowl, cover with a clean damp dish towel, and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.
5
Knead the dough for 2 minutes then stretch the dough with your hands to form a round. Place it on an oiled baking sheet, pushing out the edges until even. The dough should be no more than 1/4inch thick because it will rise during cooking.
