basic pizza dough

Use this dough to make pizza, lahmacun, pide or any other pizza type dish.

1 kg strong white bread flour
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
14g fast action dried yeast
4 tbsp olive oil
approx 600-700ml warm water
  1. Put all the dry ingredients into a large bowl, make a well in the centre and pour in the oil, Using a butter knife or your hands start to bring the ingredients together. Gradually add the water, little by little, until you have a rough dough. You may not use all the water or you may need to add a little more. Knead the dough in between each addition.
  2. Once you have a rough dough turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for around 10 minutes or until you have a smooth springy dough. 
  3. Place dough in a bowl, cover with lightly oiled cling film then leave in a warm place to rise for about and hour or so.
  4. In the mean time combine all the topping ingredients in a large bowl until evenly mixed. Cover and set to one side until needed.
  5. Once the dough has risen uncover it, knock it back and divide into your required number of portions. I split mine into four balls. One ball will make one 25cm deep pan pizza or two 25cm thin crust pizzas.
