After experimenting further with the pizza base quantities, it’s now perfected I think. After quartering the original recipe, we now have a base that’s not too thick and not too soggy. Hurrah.
Pizza base (makes 1 large pizza)
1/2 teaspoon dried yeast
3/4 cup bread flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup water, plus
1/2 tablespoon water
Put the ingredients in the order listed in your bread machine. Select the dough cycle and press start (takes about 1 hour 30 minutes). After it’s finished, roll it around in an oiled bowl and cover for about 30 minutes. Roll it out and add your toppings. Cook for about 20 minutes at 220C.
For this week’s toppings, we had tomato sauce (leftover from the previous pizza and stored in the freezer), mushrooms, olives, onion, red jalapenos, fresh tomato, egg, mozzarella and cheddar.
