My Pizza dough recipe (perfect for kids school lunches)
Annabelle loves Pizza
Having pizza for lunch is her favourite thing at the moment.
To make my life easier I make a batch of pizza bases in one go so that I can take one out of the freezer at a time and in 10-15 minutes I have a fresh homemade pizza ready for Annabelle's lunch.
This is my recipe for the pizza bases:
600g strong white bread flour, plus plenty for rolling (I prefer an italian tipo 00 flour)
500ml slightly warm water
½ tsp dried yeast
2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
Put the flour, yeast and 1 tsp salt into a large bowl.
Stir in the 500ml of slightly warm water and the oil. You should end up with a moist dough that is rough and lumpy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, cover with a tea towel.
Leave the dough to rise until doubled in size.
When ready to cook.
Dust your work surface with flour, then divide the dough into 4 or 6 pieces.
Knead each piece on the floured surface, use enough flour to stop the dough being sticky.
Roll each piece into a small pizza shape 15-20 cm in diameter and lift them to baking sheets.
Leave to rise for 10 mins.
Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt (optional) and bake for about 5-6 mins for an individual, take them out before it goes crispy or take any colour.
Take them out and let them cool down and wrap them individual and freeze them.
I take one out in the morning and add toppings -normally bolognese sauce and different veg.
I cook them until nice and light brown.
I hope you will enjoy the recipe
