    Default Pizza base recipes please

    There have been some excellent pizza topping threads on bubhub. Now I am looking for some pizza base recipes. I have tried a few and the best one so far that I have found is a jamie oliver one. It's still not as nice as the pizzerias, doesn't have the same chewiness. I also use pizza stone and heat cranked way up to 250C.

    So can you please share your pizza base recipe and any tips and tricks. Thanks !

    Mine is so simple!
    Mix 1 cup of warm water with 1 teaspoon of yeast and 1 teaspoon of caster sugar, let that sit for 10 minutes

    Then mix 1 cup of plain flour and 1 of wholemeal with a good pinch of salt and a tablespoon or so of olive oil.

    Then mix/knead all together for about 5 minutes and then let rise for about an hour in a bowl covered in glad wrap.

    This will make 2 super big family pizzas rolled thin. I also use a "docker" to poke holes in it so it doesn't balloon

    Also, when cooking pizzas I do one at a time as they cook way better

    1 cup of natural yoghurt and one cup of self raising flour plus flour to roll and that's it's - delicious and healthy!

    Thanks. I was in a rush today and only left dough to rise half hour, wonder if that makes a difference. Do u use any particular brand of flour? I have read that high protein is best.

    I use the bakers choice one. If you're in a rush, heat the oven to a low temp, open the door and put the bowl/dough on the door while open speeds up the process

    I think i use the same flour, wallaby brand right? I covered the dough with wet tea towel then left outside bc it was a really hot day 39C! Do u let it rise again after rolling out? I just can't seem to get the dough perfect...

    It is and there's no waiting around for dough to rise, it's ready to use straight away.

    I've only ever made pizza from scratch once and I used sweet potato as the base. It turned out pretty good! Here's the recipe I used
