Pizza dough Recipe
Pizza dough
Flavors of Italy
Difficulty: Easy
For 6 servings

- 255 g / 9 oz. white flour
- 55 g / 2 oz. brewers or compressed yeast
- 1 pinch salt
- water, as needed
  1. Crumble the yeast in a cup and dilute with several tablespoons of warm water (not hot, otherwise the yeast will die and lose its leavening power).
  2. Mix with about 55 g / 2 oz. flour, cover the cup with a cloth and keep it in a warm place so that it can rise.
  3. Pour the remaining flour on the pastry board, add a pinch of salt and knead with warm water (the dough should not be too soft).
  4. Add the fermented dough and continue to knead vigorously until it becomes elastic.
  5. Shape the dough into 6 even balls, then place them on a flat wooden board, lightly coated with flour. Cover with a cloth and keep it in a warm place until the dough swells to twice its former size.
  6. The dough is now ready to be punched down, made into disks of approximately 25 cm / 10 in. in diameter, and used for pizza with any topping you wish.
