Method : How to make pizza dough at home

Get a cookie tray and put to the side

Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

Make a well in the centre of the bowl, add in the oil and water.

Mix this together to form a dough, knead it gently in the bowl, or on a lightly floured work surface. Cover the dough and put aside for an hour. (If you are out of time you can bake immediately)

While the dough is resting make some pizza sauce (look below)

About 5 minutes before the dough is ready, preheat oven to 230 Celsius

When the pizza dough is ready, put some flour on a work surface, put the dough on it.

Knead the dough gently until smooth and then roll it out on the work surface until quite thin. It will puff up in the oven.
