The most perfectly soft-but-crunchy pizza dough! Bake on a pizza stone for an extra golden pizza.

Makes 2 pizza bases of about 30cm diameter
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, or as needed 
  • 1 package yeast (7g) 
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 cup very warm water (53 degrees Celsius) 
  • 2 tbsp olive or vegetable oil 
  • Cornmeal   
In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, the yeast, salt, and warm water, and mix well. Leave for about 10 minutes, then add the oil and enough flour to form a soft dough. Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic. Put in a floured container, cover, and leave to rise for about 10 minutes. 

Divide the dough into two. Sprinkle some cornmeal on a table top and roll out each ball to fit your pizza pan. Lightly oil the pan and place dough in the pan. Top pizza as desired. Bake at 200 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes or until golden and crispy. Baking time depends on size and thickness of crust and selected toppings.
