Servings: 2
Preparation: 2h
Cooking: 30 min.

500 gr (1.1 lbs) bread flour

1 sachet active dry yeast

2 teaspoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

250 ml (8.5 fl.oz.) warm water

2 x 32 cm (12/13 inches) pizza pans



1 - Melt the yeast in half glass with warm water. Set aside for 10 minutes.

2 - In a bowl combine the flour, 2 teaspoons sugar, 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, the melted yeast with water and start mixing with the tips of your fingers.


3 - At this stage, add 1 teaspoon of salt and pour warm water, a little at a time, and mix with your hands.

4 - Knock the dough over the working surface and knead it thoroughly until smooth. If the dough is too tough, just add warm water, a few tablespoons at a time.


5 - Form a ball with the dough, put it in a slightly floured bowl and cover with a towel or with clingfilm.

6 - Let rise in a warm place free from drafts (the oven that is off would be perfect) for about 2 hours, until double in size.


7 - Lightly brush the pizza pan with oil.

8 - Line the pan with the dough, flattening it with the tips of your fingers


9 - Top the dough with your favourite ingredients and rest it for 20 minutes before baking it.
