pizza base dough
Parts // Pizza // 6-8 servings
2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup oil (extra virgin olive oil is preferred)
2/3 cup lukewarm water
To make pizza dough, combine flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Mix oil and water together and tip into flour. Mix with a knife until dough comes together; it should be soft and supple. Cover and rest for at least 30 minutes or overnight in the fridge.
Preheat oven to 220°C bake. Cut baking paper to the same size as a baking tray. Place tray in the oven to preheat (this will ensure a crisp base). Place baking paper on a clean bench and roll out dough on top until it is the same size as the baking paper. Fold in edges of dough by 1cm (1/2 inch) to form a raised border. Top with desired pizza toppings and bake until base is cooked to your liking (up to 30min).
