  • 30 ounces Grade 00 white flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 14 grams instant yeast
  • 2 fluid ounces olive oil (optional)
  • 12-14 fluid ounces cold water
  1. Sift the flour into a mixing bowl then add salt and mix thoroughly.

  2. Now add the yeast and mix thoroughly.

  3. Put the electric mixer on low speed then start adding the olive oil and cold water.

  4. Mix the dough for around 7/8 minutes on the dough hook mixer speed.

  5. Sprinkle your kitchen work top with the flour.

  6. When the dough has cleared the sides of the bowl but is still sticking to the 

    bottom and is sticky and stretchy, take it out and place onto a floured work top.

  7. Roll the dough into a long sausage shape.

  8. Cut the dough into 6 pieces with a dough scraper (depending on size and 

    thickness of pizza required)

  9. Now roll each dough piece into a ball.

  10. The dough is now ready to be used for your pizza.  The unused pizza dough balls

     can be olive oiled then placed into individual freezer bags and kept in the freezer.
