Home-made pizza base

Home-made pizza base  Tried Tested

For the pizza base:
1 kg white bread flour plus ground semolina for dusting
1 tsp sea salt
2x7g yeast sachet
1 tsp golden sugar
4 tbsp olive oil
500ml lukewarm water

Sieve the flour and salt onto a clean surface and make a well in the center, in a jug mix yeast and sugar,olive oil into the water and leave to sit for a few minutes. Then pour into the well ,using a fork bring the flour gradually from the sides and swirl into the liquid. Keep mixing , drawing a larger amounts of flour and when it all starts to come together , work with the rest of the flour in with your clean flour dusted hands, knead until you have a smooth springy dough.
Place a ball dough into an oiled bowl and flour the top of it with semolina flour. Cover and let it double in size for bout 2 hours or more.
Now remove the dough to a floured surface and knead it around a bit to push the air out of your hands- this called knocking back the dough.
Cut dough and divide up to 6 to 8 slices.
Roll the dough into a circle if your making round pizza, spread the ready made pizza sauce top with your favorite toppings and cheese. Bake in preheated oven 180C for about 15 minutes . Serve hot enjoy.
Tip: Timing wise, it is good to roll the pizza about 15 to 20 minutes before baking. Dont roll them and leave the hanging around for a few hours .
