Pizza and Bread Dough

Prep time: 3 hours
Yield: 2 servings

  • 4.5 cups White Flour
  • 12 oz Water
  • 1 tablespoon Oil
  • 1 bag Dryed Yeast
  • 1 pinch Salt
This dough is the base for making Pizza and traditional Italian Bread
  1. Prepare all your ingredients. Put the flour in a big bowl, sprinkle with a pinch of salt, and dig a hole in the center (I use a fork.)
  2. Fill a measuring cup with 350 / 400 ml (11oz) of lukewarm water, add the yeast, and mix until the yeast is properly dissolved. Add the oil and mix again.
  3. Slowly pour the liquid on the flour while mixing energetically with the fork. When you have poured all the liquid keep mixing until it becomes too hard and then knead the dough manually, first inside the bowl and then on a flat surface until you have a uniform ball. You may have to adjust the water quantity, I usually find it easier if I am a bit more generous with it, as a soft dough leavens better and is easier to knead. (If you end up adding too much water add another bit of flour.)

  4. Place the ball of dough back into the bowl, cover it with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap, and set it to rest in a protected space. Ideally inside the oven or microwave.
  5. Let the dough rise for two hours at the very minimum. You can leave it longer if you want, even as long as twenty-four hours.
  6. Remove the dough from its resting place, it should have doubled in size, knead it until it’s smooth again and you’re ready to move on to your recipe.
