Pizza Dough

Pizza is like staple diet to newyorkers. Lunch, supper, dinner, after-dinner; pizza is eaten at any time. This inspired me to make one at home. I looked for pizza dough receipes and I looked for one which is simple and easy. Here is one:

31/2 cups All purpose flour (maida)
1 cup warm water
2 Tbspn Yeast (or 1 sachet)
2 Tbspn Honey
1/4 cup Olive oil (any cooking oil can do)
1/2 tspn salt


Pour 1 cup warm water in a bowl.
Add honey and salt to it.
Blend the above.
Add yeast to it.
Blend the above again.
Wait for 5 mins.
Add 1 cup flour and oil to the above.
Mix until well blended.
Add the rest of the flour.
Blend it well and then knead for about 1 min.
You can put the dough in a bowl and cover it or can be put in a plastic bag.
Keep in warm place.
Wait 45 mins.
After 45 mins Punch & Knead the dough.
Keep the dough back in the warm place for another 1 hr.
After 1 hr punch and knead again.
Ready for the Pizza.

Important: The dough should turn into a ball.
  • If too dry, add water one tablespoon at a time until it does.
  • If mixture is more like a batter, add flour one tablespoon at a time.
