INGREDIENTS

  • 175g strong bread flour 
  • 175g 0’0 flour
  • 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil 
  • 15g fast acting yeast
  • 200ml warm water
  • 2 pinches of salt

METHOD

  1. Take your stand mixer and add the dough hook attachment. Add all the ingredients except the water. Begin mixing on a slow setting and add water bit-by-bit until you achieve a soft and pliable dough. It is better to add too much water, than not enough. You can always add more flour if the dough becomes too wet.
  2. Cover the dough, in a bowl, and leave to rise for approximately 1hr and 30mins. The dough should have doubled in size.
  3. After the first proving, divide the dough into four pieces. Put them on a tray – each one positioned with enough room around it – and leave them until they double in volume.
  4. Once the dough is ready, roll into a small circular shape. Using the weight of the dough, and the back of your hands, stretch it out to create a large round disk. Top with passata, being careful to leave at least 1cm of uncovered dough on the edges of the circle. Add your desired topping. When finished, put in a preheated oven at 250° and cook directly on a preheated pizza stone for a few minutes.
