How to make pizza dough?

You only need 6 ingredients, a short time for kneading, and no rising or resting time for this recipe.

We make this pizza dough by hand because it is so quick and easy, but if you wish you can of course use a standing mixer. For all pasta lovers check the list of 10 essential tools for making pasta.

Kneading and shaping

During the kneading it is important to check the consistency of the dough. If it is too dry, add a little water, if it is too sticky it will need a little extra flour, but don’t overdo it. When the dough is perfectly kneaded, use a rolling pin to shape it into a regular, round pizza or you can choose to make it into a rectangular family style pizza. You can of course swing it and toss in the air like a real pizzaiolo if you are skilled but whatever the shape, we like a very crunchy crust, so we roll it as thin as possible. We would like to remind you that this recipe doesn’t need rising or resting time!

Flavoured dough

The flavour of a pizza usually comes from the toppings but since you are making your own pizza, why don’t you also add flavour to the dough? Add some dried spices, herbs or garlic powder while combining the dry elements.
