Pizza Night

My new housemate Bec has many talents. One of which is making incredible pizza dough. (her name is also Rebecca, I haven’t started referring to myself in the third person… yet) Last Thursday night we had some friends over, cooked up a batch of pizzas and made a decent dent in four bottles of wine had a few quiet drinks.

I highly recommend you pilfer this dough recipe. It’s so easy and delicious. I doubt i’ll ever buy a bland overpriced pizza base from Coles again.

First things first:

Put two cups of plain flour in a bowl and sprinkle one 8g sachet of dry yeast on top. Add 1 teaspoon of caster sugar and half a teaspoon of salt. Stir.

Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 3/4 cup of warm water and knead. Add a bit more flour if it’s too runny.

Have some fun, throw the dough around, sing That’s Amore.

Split the dough in half and cover with cling wrap very loosely, so the lumps have room to expand.

Here you can see I take my assistant duties very seriously.

While the dough is rising prep your favourite toppings.

Then pound out the dough on a floured bench top and use a rolling pin to flatten it out. Add your toppings. On one pizza we had tomato paste, ham, cherry tomatoes, capsicum, onion, olives and spinach. On the other we had BBQ sauce (controversial), leftover chicken, roasted sweet potato and a bunch of other delicious stuff.

The dough is so light and fluffy. And we had an entire pizza leftover to take to work the next day. Yes Bec and I work together as well as live together and share the same first name. Talk about identity crisis! At times I wonder if we are indeed just the same person…

But then I remember Bec was able to get to work by 5:45am the morning after our pizza night. She’s tough as nails. Difference established.

    Looks delicious. I’ve been wanting to make my own pizza dough for a while. May have to steal this recipe. Must be nearly lunch time because my stomach is rumbling just looking at these photos xo
