Simple and absolutely delicious recipe for the best pizza dough, that will satisfy any pizza enthusiast.

I love pizza! Probably a lot of people can relate to that, but I'm seriously obsessed with this dish. There are not many places that serve it properly, most of the times the dough is too soggy, or too thin, or there's not enough cheese. That's why I set one of my goals to find the best pizza dough recipe.

Even though the ingredients list contains only 5 very basic items, that can be easily found in every kitchen, it's all about the technique. I discovered, that the key to an amazing oven pizza, is to use the pizza stone. It's definitely worth to invest in the stone, as it's also great for other yeast based baking goodies. With the following recipe, you can achieve a great taste even without the stone, but baking with the stone makes the dough perfectly crusty on the outside and soft inside.

To use the pizza stone, simply heat up your oven with the stone inside, and wait until it reaches up the desired temerature!

Another reason to love pizza, is that you can basically put anything on it! Any kind of topping you love will fit perfectly to the overall taste explosion. My favorite combination is shrimps with pineapple, but I also like experimenting with other tastes, and adding some extras like for example arugula, feta and chili.

I usually don't have time to prepare the sauce, so I'm choosing a little bit lazy, but still delicious solution: ketchup or tomato concentrate with Herbes de Provence and garlic. I'm going to share with you later a great recipe for the pizza sauce, if you have some spare time, make more and pasteurize it the jars for later use.

Instructions
  1. Combine flour with dry active yeast. Set your mixer with the hook attachment on the lowest speed, and add salt and olive oil. Increase the speed to 2 and start adding water, just enough to form an elastic ball.
  2. Transfer dough to a bowl greased with olive oil. Cover with a towel and wait until it rises (around 1h).
  3. After that time preheat your pizza stone in the oven. Use the highest temperature, I have 275°C.
  4. In the meantime roll out your dough and the baking sheet, trimmed to the size of the pizza stone, and form a circle. Poke it with the fork, spread sauce and the rest of ingredients.
  5. Take out the stone and transfer the pizza. Let it bake for around 15-20min. The pizza is done when the cheese is melted and starting to turn a little brown.
