How to make pizza dough with step by step images
- Take ¾ cup warm water in a cup, add yeast and sugar. Mix well and keep it aside undisturbed for 10 minutes until frothy. Always make sure to take luke warm water, a temperature that shouldn’t hurt when put your finger in water. This step is very important because only warm warm water can activate yeast which is again very important to help the dough rise.
- Now in a bowl add all purpose flour, salt, oil and frothy yeast mixture. Mix everything well and knead it into soft dough. ( I required 1 tbsp water more for making dough). Kneading a soft dough is very important in yielding soft pizza base. Cover the dough and keep it aside for an hour. (This rest time will help dough to double in size and will create aeration). Do not skip the resting time.
- After an hour you will notice the dough doubled in size as shown in first picture of the collage. Now pizza dough is ready to make pizza!
