I had some help in the kitchen, which made it fun and even easier.
Please, please take the time to make these. They are a taste sensation!
You don't need to make homemade pizza dough. Pita and or store-bought bases would be just fine.
375ml (1 1/2 cups) warm water
2 tsp (7g) dried yeast
Pinch of caster sugar
600g (4 cups) plain flour
1 tsp salt
60ml (1/4 cup) olive oil, plus extra for brushing
Combine the warm water, yeast and sugar in a small bowl and put aside for 5 minutes until foamy.
In another bowl, put the flour and salt and make a well in the centre. Add the yeast mixture and oil.
In a cutting motion mix until the mixture is combined. Use your hands to bring the dough together in the bowl.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.
Place in an oiled prepared bowl and turn to coat in oil. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm, draught-free place to rise for 30 minutes or until dough doubles in size.
Pull off as much dough as you need and stretch and roll out to the shape and thickness you like your pizza at. It didn't rise a lot.
