  • 13oz (365g) Cold water
  • 4 tsp (18g) Salt
  • 7g Instant dried yeast (20g fresh or 9.2g active dried yeast)
  • 21.5oz (610g) “00” Flour
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil


  • In order to activate the yeast quicker, you need to use lukewarm water. to get the right temperature place 1/3 of the water into a saucepan until it begins to boil. Once its boiling place it in a bowl with the remaining 2/3 of cold water. 
  • Add the salt and whisk it until it is fully dissolved. 
  • Once the salt has dissolved, add the yeast and whisk it until all yeast is mixed in. 
  • Leave the yeast to start activating for 5 minutes. You should know the yeast is activated as it will start to form a foam on the top. 
  • In a bowl place the flour and then pour in the yeast mixture
  • Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until it has started to form dough. You may need to continue to mix with your hand to fully combine. 
  • Once its fully combined into a dough, flour your surface and empty the dough out onto your work surface. 
  • Knead the pizza dough for 5 10 minutes. Try not to add any more flour as this will reduce the hydration. 
  • Add 1 tsp Olive Oil onto the dough and rub it in with your hands. Knead again for another minute. (The oil helps to give it a smoother surface and helps improve flavour)
  • Place into an air tight container or a bowl covered with cling film. Leave in a warm place for 2 hours. 
  • Once the dough has risen, divide the mixture into 4 equal sized dough balls. 
  • Place each dough ball into a separate air tight container or bowl cover with cling film. 
  • Leave to rest for 30-60 minutes – it should double in size. 
  • Your dough balls are now ready to be shaped and use. Or you can store the pizza dough for the next time you need them.
