  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • A pinch of castor sugar
  • ¼ cup olive oil, plus extra for brushing

Method of Preparation


Mix warm water, yeast and sugar together and leave it aside to froth. If it does not froth after a few minutes, discard it. Try mixing it again as your water may be too warm or your yeast may have gone bad.

Combine the salt, flour and the yeast-water mixture together along with the oil. You can mix it in the mixer or better use your hands to combine the ingredients. Your pizza dough must be sticky and not too tacky. Once you make a nice big ball of dough brush it with oil and place it on a floured surface. Keep kneading it for about 10 minutes, till it becomes smooth and elastic. Place it in a bowl and cover it with a plastic wrap. Place it in a warm, draught-free place to rise for about 30 minutes or until it doubles in size.

Now, sprinkle flour on your work table and lightly punch the dough. Work with your hands together and make a smooth ball. Divide the ball in 3 equal portions. You pizza dough is ready to bake.
Use your hands to stretch the dough and avoid rolling it. Add your favorite toppings and bake your homemade pizza dough into a delicious pizza.
