Easy Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe

We all love pizza, I mean, really, who doesn't?

More often than not, my quickest way of whipping up pizza is using ready made crusts or just the tortilla breads. As long as I have some cheese on standby, I can load some toppings and we are done. It is one of the fastest and yummiest meals ever, at least in our home.

This changed when recently I took it to task to make my own dough. Sure it takes a little extra effort and time. Ok ok I confess I knead the dough in my breadmaker. Regardless, there needs to be some planning to be done to ensure you have ample of time for kneading and proofing, even if it is in the breadmaker.

The previous recipe for dough I used many years ago did not quite strike a chord with me. But this time, the recipe that I found online, totally rocked it, and so this time I am really proud to show and share it. And here goes:

You Need:
2 cups of bread flour
1/2 cup of all purpose flour
7g yeast
1cup warm water
1/2 cup of olive oil
some salt, sugar

As usual I activate my yeast in some warm water and sugar, let it rest and foam in 10 minutes. Then I added the wet mixture into the bread flour, all purpose flour, salt and sugar. At this point I let the breadmaker knead till its done. Allow it to proof for 1 hour before adding your favourite toppings and bake at 180C for 10-15 minutes.

I made 2 types, one is with pasta sauce, vegetables and sausage, and another one is rather foccacia like, with olive oil, cherry tomatoes, bacon, and olives.

I've got the yummiest of the pictures, based on my standard of photography though.

Pardon this incomplete pizza, hands appeared out of nowhere and started grabbing on them like pizza monsters. That goes to show, the recipe passed and is making comebacks more often! And lucky for me I have now got it saved on my blog, so I don't have to scatter about finding it again!
