(makes 2-3 large thin pizzas, or perhaps 1 large thick crust one)

3 cups plain flour
1 tb dry yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
3 tb olive oil
1cup warm water

In a heatproof large bowl, mix all the ingredients together to combine. Knead in the bowl until mixture is all together.

Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for a few minutes until the dough is smooth. Form into a ball

Rub/spray the inside of the bowl with oil, and place the dough ball back into the bowl. Cover with a damp teatowel and leave it to rise for an hour somewhere warm. It should double in size

If you don’t have somewhere warm (I’m guessing about 30ºC would be good?), turn the oven on for a moment to get it to a nice warm temp, then turn the oven off and place the bowl in there. You could also put the bowl on the top/mantle of a fireplace, or even in a sink of hot water

Once doubled, take dough out and punch it to remove air. Break into 1-2 pieces and roll out to desired thickness. Place on your pizza tray.

Top with your fave pizza toppings, and bake 220ºC for 20 minutes or 250°C for 10 – 15 minutes.
