With all the fuss about the best pizza toppings and sauces, how do you make your own crust?
For the adventurous pizza fan, there are several great pizza dough recipes out there that are simple, fast and super easy to make.
Roughly 30 minutes in the kitchen can get you pizza in minutes.
This crust is so easy to roll and roll it out in a matter of minutes, and it’s really easy to cut up into smaller pieces to make smaller pizzas.
We’re going to show you how to make it using a pizza machine and a pizza cutter.
Prepare the dough first.
If you don’t have a pizza maker, you can make a crust dough by rolling it out on a lightly floured surface.
This dough will look a little bit like the dough that you’d make with a pizza pan, but you’ll need to make a small difference in the thickness and texture.
This recipe uses 1.5 tablespoons of whole wheat flour, but if you want a thicker dough, you’ll want to increase the amount of flour you use.
If the dough is too soft to roll out on the dough machine, simply press down on it to make sure it doesn’t stick.
If it sticks, you’re on the right track.
To roll out the dough, spread it out horizontally on a piece of plastic wrap and press it down with your fingers.
Roll the dough out to a rectangle about 10cm wide and about 5cm high.
It should be about a third of the size of the dough.
Use the pizza cutter to cut the dough into two or three smaller slices.
Using the pizza machine, cut a thin slice from the dough and cut it into a circle of about 1cm in diameter.
Place the circle of dough on a pizza baking sheet and lightly sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of flour.
The dough should be coated in the flour and slightly sticky.
Repeat the process with a second slice.
Bake the pizza.
Take your pizza pan and place the pizza in the oven at 180C (400F).
Turn the oven off and allow the pizza to cook for around 20 minutes.
Remove the pizza from the oven and cut into a small rectangle.
Bake for about 15 minutes.
When the crust is done, turn the oven on to high and bake for another 10 minutes.
To check the pizza is cooked, check it on the other side of the oven by pulling back the bottom of the pan to check the crust.
If all the crust has been cooked, you have the crust ready to use.
Prepare your toppings.
To make the toppings, combine the flour, butter and salt in a large bowl and stir to combine.
Pour in the oil, vinegar and pepper and mix well.
To assemble the crust, take your pizza maker out and roll out a slice of crust about 2cm thick.
Brush a thin layer of olive oil on the edge of the crust and bake the crust for 10-15 minutes.
Bake another pie.
To prepare the sauce, melt a little olive oil in a pan and add the flour mixture.
Bring to a boil and add in the remaining flour and whisk until combined.
Season with salt and pepper.
Mix the sauce into the crust as it bakes.
Serve the crust with your favourite toppings: pepperoni, garlic, onion, pepper, tomato, parsley, basil, oregano and red pepper flakes.
