The ingredients to make the pizza crust at home:
- You need warm water (1-1/2 cup)
- You need salt (about 1-1/2 teaspoon)
- You need active dry yeast (about 2-1/4 teaspoon)
- One teaspoon of sugar
- You also need bread flour (about four cups)
- Extra virgin olive oil (about 2 teaspoons)
- Extra flour
Take a large bowl and place the warm water and sugar in it. Until the sugar gets dissolved in water stir it well. After that add the yeast to the water and sugar and mix gently till it gets dissolved. Leave the mixture for ten minutes so that the yeast mixes well and smells yeasty.
When the yeast gets mixed completely then you add salt and olive oil and stir well. Add the flour gently and mix it properly. Make sure the mixture is thick after adding flour. To avoid stickiness you can add additional flour. Turn the dough out for kneading by scattering the flour on the work surface. You need to repeat kneading about ten to twelve times to make the dough rise. Make sure after kneading, the dough becomes silky and is smoothly textured. You can bake the dough so that it rises and afterwards you can use it to make your pizza. Once you have your pizza made, you can then use a chafing dish to keep it warm before serving it to guests.
