Easy Pizza Dough
Pre-heat oven to 200°C. Pour warm water into a bowl and stir in the sugar; sprinkle with yeast. Let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk together and add the olive oil.
In a separate bowl, combine flour and salt and mix well.
In a large bowl, combine wet and dry ingredients and stir until a sticky dough forms. If it's a bit dry, add a bit more water gradually until you have the right consistency.
Cover the dough with a tea towel and let it rise in a warm place for 15-20 minutes.
Once the dough has risen, roll it out on either a clean-floured surface. I roll mine out directly on a piece of baking paper that I have sprinkled with flour. The baking paper is a great trick because then you can simply lift the paper to transfer the dough to your baking tray. Sprinkle the dough lightly with flour and roll it out. As you roll out the dough, you may need to sprinkle it with a bit of flour to keep it from sticking to the roller.
Spread sauce onto of dough and then pop it in the oven to bake for 5 minutes. This will help ensure the crust bakes evenly. If you add your sauce and all your toppings all at once, you'll end up with an under cooked crust in the centre of your pizza.
Remove from the oven and then add your favoruite toppings. Bake for 15 minutes more at 200°C.
