Make own pizza dough

Published on:

What can I say? Living close to Italy makes you love pizza I guess. We tried to make own pizza dough last weekend and it turned out pretty good! This is what we did:

Make own pizza dough: ingredients

  • 7 gr dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 110 ml lukewarm Freshmill milk
  • 400 gr bread flour (for the crispy crust)
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Ingredients for the topping

Anything you like!

Let’s get started

Before you make own pizza dough, combine all dry ingredients (bread flour, yeast, sugar and salt) in a big bowl and start mixing. While you’re mixing, add the milk and 2 tablespoons of olive oil and keep mixing until the dough forms into a ball. When you think the dough is a bit too sticky, just add some more flour (one tablespoon at a time). If the dough is too dry, add some more milk.

Once the dough is good to go, scrape it onto a floured surface and make it into a smooth ball. Grease the large bowl with 2 teaspoons of olive oil, place the dough in the bowl, cover it with a plastic wrap and put it in a warm area for about an hour. You will see that the dough has doubled in size!

Divide the dough in two equal pieces, cover each with a plastic wrap again and let them rest for 10 more minutes. After this, it’s time to roll, shape and cover the pizza dough with anything you would like. It is important to use a floured surface for this!

We recommend baking it at the hottest oven setting possible (550F) for 9 minutes. Bon appetit!
