This is an easy basic pizza dough recipe. Creating pizzas is a great way to feed guests for a social event or serve with salad for a family meal.Prep time: 1 hour
1/2 cup lukewarm water
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon oil
Combine water and sugar, then sprinkle yeast on top and leave for 15 minutes until frothy.
Sift flour into a mixing bowl with salt. Make a well in the middle, add oil and yeast mixture. Mix and combine.
Turn out dough onto a floured surface and knead dough until smooth and elastic (if sticky add a little extra flour). Shape into a ball and place in a greased bowl. Leave covered in bowl until ball doubles in size (time depends on temp of room but about 40 minutes). Finally punch down dough and knead lightly before placing into pizza tray.
Sprinkle pizza tray with cornmeal and press dough evenly into tray.
Spread the pizza base with tomato puree then sprinkle on your favourite toppings such as salami, ham, capsicum, pineapple, olives and cheese.
