- 2 x 10 g packets yeast
- 2 cups lukewarm water
- 1 T sugar
- 840 g flour
- 2 t salt
Mix the yeast with lukewarm water and sugar. Set aside for a few minutes.
Place flour and salt in a large bowl or on a clean surface. Make a well in the middle and pour in the yeast mixture. Using a fork or blunt knife, slowly stir the liquid into the flour to make a dough. As it comes together, knead for 10 minutes, or until smooth and springy.
Cover and set aside until doubled in size. Tear off balls, arrange on a tray and allow to rise again until ready to bake.
This dough can be used as a thick, foccacia-style base or for thin pizza bases.
For thick bases, pull out the dough balls to make rough oval shapes, or roll out to make a thin pizza base.
Add the toppings of your choice (browse pizza topping ideas here).
Place on a lightly floured baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and season. Bake at 200°C for 10 minutes, or until light golden.
