Homemade Pizza Dough

Author: Gaby

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon 00 flour 153 grams
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon and 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour 153 grams
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine flours and salt.
  • In a small mixing bowl, stir together about 1 cup (200 grams) lukewarm tap water, the yeast and the olive oil. Pour it into flour mixture. Knead with your hands until just combined, approximately 2-3 minutes, then let the mixture rest for 15 minutes.
  • Knead the rested dough for 3 minutes until smooth. Cut the dough into 2 equal pieces and shape each into a ball. Place on a heavily floured surface, cover with dampened clean kitchen towel, and let rest and rise for 3 to 4 hours at room temperature. Alternatively, if you're making the dough a day before use, you can let it rest and rise for 8 to 24 hours in the refrigerator.
  • To make pizza, make sure the dough is at room temperature and place each dough ball on a heavily floured surface and use your fingers to stretch it, then your hands to shape it into rounds or squares. Top and bake.
