TIME 30 MINS PREP, 60 MINS CHILL
MEDIUM DIFFICULTY


METHOD

  1. Add the sugar and the dried yeast to the water and stir in
  2. Mix the smRt bake, flour, salt and olive oil in a separate bowl
  3. Place all the ingredients in a food processor or other mixing device
  4. Blitz carefully, stopped once your mixture is coming together and your machine is starting to labour
  5. On a floured surface, roll up the mixture, wrap it in cling film and set aside in a warm place for an hour
  6. Remove the clingfilm and 'knock back' the dough to remove large air bubbles and get an even texture
  7. On your floured surface, cut the dough into even pieces and roll them out into the pizza bases
  8. For dough balls, on the last step simply cut the dough into small pieces and roll them individually into dough balls

For 3 to 4 pizza bases (or half the dough balls), simply halve all the quantities.
