pizza dough

350g bread flour

1 sachet (6-7g) fast action bread yeast

2 tbsp olive oil

225ml warm water

1 level tsp salt

put the flour, yeast and salt in a food processor and blend a little. Add the oil and water, and blend, using a dough blade, until it forms into a ball. Pull out of the machine and kneed a little by hand until shiney and elastic. Set aside in an oiled bowl somewhere warm for about an hour until doubled in size.

Divide into three and shape into pizza base shapes by hand. Add tomato sauce - I use one based on the roasted tomato sauce with added garlic and oregano, cooked until thick - and other toppings and cook at about 200C for 15 minutes.
