Overnight Pizza Recipe (Day 1) - The Dough

Updated: Aug 18

By slowing down the process, we allow the flavours to develop properly - resulting in the tastiest Pizza dough you've ever had and the kids will love it! Get them involved and off the TV 😀


Don't worry, you don't need any special equipment or a wood fired oven like mine. Everything can be done at home - with fantastic results.




Mixing:

  1. In a bowl, dissolve the Yeast in the warm water (tepid)

  2. In a separate bowl, mix the flour and salt together (Italian 'oo', High Grade or whatever you've got .... definitely NOT self-raising though!)

  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix together, until all combined


Kneading:

This develops the Gluten structure and allows gas bubbles to get trapped in the dough. I knead my dough by hand - just like the Italian Pizzaiolo's (pizza makers) ... but please feel fee to use your kitchen appliances or whatever suits you best. 10 minutes should be fine.


Rest Overnight:

Put the dough in a bowl and cover - to stop a skin forming on the surface. I use a disposable shower cap - not from the bathrooms of course! You could simply place another bowl on top. Now leave the dough to do it's job overnight - or at least 8 hours


Tomorrow we'll make the tomato sauce and cook the Pizza .....😀🎩
