This week's recipe from Giorgio our chef is on how to make PIZZA DOUGH:
2 tsps. (7 g sachet) dried yeast
2 cups luke-warm water
500 g plain flour, plus extra to dust
2 tsps. salt
1 tsp. sugar
50 ml olive oil
Whisk yeast and water in a heatproof jug. Stand for 5 minutes or until frothy.
Place flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Pour in the yeast mixture and oil.
Using your hands, mix the dough until it comes together and is smooth. Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead briefly.
Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with cling wrap. Set aside in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes to an hour until it doubles in size.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for another 5 minutes or until smooth. Divide dough and roll out pizza bases to desired size. Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking. Your dough is now ready for your favourite pizza topping.
